Victory For Rose

Justin Rose captured his maiden Major title to become the first Englishman for 43 years to win the US Open.

He won by two shots from now six-time runner-up Phil Mickelson and Jason Day on a final day which was as emotional as it was gripping.

Rose is also the first Englishman to win a Major since Nick Faldo in 1996. It couldn’t have happened to a nicer person as Rose looked up to the sky with tears in his eyes after he tapped in his final par putt, and admitted later to thinking of his father and long-time mentor Ken, who died from leukaemia in 2002. It was a touching end to a wonderful event.
