‘Return of the King’ 43-year-old Rose wins at Pebble Beach for the first time in 4 years

Justin Rose (43, England), who once ranked No.

Rose won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour held at Pebble Beach Golf Course in California on the 7th (Korean time) with 18 under par 269 strokes. In the final round, which was held for two days in the aftermath of bad weather, 1 eagle, 5 birdies, and 1 bogey were combined to reduce 6 strokes and beat the second place group by 3 strokes. The winning prize is 1.62 million dollars (about 2.03 billion won).

Born in South Africa in 1980, Rose moved to England at the age of five. He first grabbed a club at a golf course near his house, grew into an elite player, and debuted on the European Tour in 1998.

After getting his first taste of victory at the 2002 Dunhill Championship, Rose moved to the PGA Tour in 2004. His long-awaited heyday came in 2010. He won back-to-back AT&T Nationals and Memorial Tournaments. Since then, he has reached the top every year until 2015, and won the gold medal in the individual event at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, when golf was revived as an official event after 104 years. Between 2018 and 2019, it was also ranked No. 1 in the world rankings. 온라인바카라

Rose, who achieved her 10th PGA Tour victory at the Farmers Insurance Open in January 2019, suffered a slump the following year. As he entered the age of 40, evaluations followed that his shot was not what it used to be. During this period, the world ranking fell to 84th, and he was in danger of losing the right to participate in major tournaments. However, he announced a resurgence with this win.

Like the recent ups and downs of golf, the road to victory was arduous. Due to bad weather in this tournament, the match did not go well from the 3rd round. Play was suspended due to heavy rain and wind. In the end, the players could not finish the final round until the 6th.

Rose also had to finish the game during the 10th hole (par 4) the previous day. Then, in the final round, which resumed on the 7th, a birdie march was held. After successfully making a birdie putt at a distance of 8m on the par 4 11th hole, he reduced one stroke each in succession on the 13th hole (par 4) and the 14th hole (par 5) to virtually reserve the championship.

Rose, who rose to 35th in the world rankings with this summit, said, “Actually, it was worth waiting for the inclement weather.” “It is an incredible tournament from start to finish. Today, the best ending came out,” he said.

Meanwhile, among Korean players, Kang Sung-hoon (36) tied for 29th with 7 under par, Ahn Byeong-hoon (32) tied for 37th with 5 under par, and Kim Seong-hyun (25) tied for 41st with 4 under par.
