South African-born English professional golfer Justin Rose came into view for the first time in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after becoming the runner up in the Masters. Rose is a part of both PGA tour and European tour. He made his mark when he won the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in 2013. Rose did his country proud by two strokes over Phil Mickelson and Jason Day. He is the first English player to conquer a major tournament since Nick Faldo in 1996. He also became the first Englishman in 43 years to win the U.S. Open after Tony Jacklin in 1970. In the 2015 Masters Tournament Rose tied with Phil Mickelson for the second place behind winner Jordan Spieth.
He continued to show case his talents as he maintained his form at the New Orleans Classic with a three under 69. Previously he dropped three shots in two holes. After Augusta he took rest for a week but now is back with a bang and hopes to continue the momentum in Georgia. More
Beleaguered and cash strapped Formula One team Manor Marussia have managed to escape sanction from the governing body of the sport after being investigated following their failure to line up their cars at the season opening Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne’s Albert Park last weekend.
The team had gone into administration at the end of last season and has only recently been revived with fresh injection of cash from its new owners and despite carrying their cars all the way to Australia from their base in the United Kingdom, the team failed to turn up either for practice or qualifying, effectively ruling them out of the running for the race on Sunday which was won by Englishman Lewis Hamilton.
John Booth, the team principal blamed problems with the software and other technical glitches for their failure to race but he said that it was important that they travelled to Australia and attempted to get their cars running by the time the race came by.
The FIA issued a statement following their probe, expressing their satisfaction that the Manor Marussia had done all it could have done in order to get the cars to race. It added that as a result, there were no further actions from the stewards following the event. More
Justin Rose is a professional golfer from England who is a member of the two most prestigious golf Tours in the world, the European Tour and the US PGA Tour. Rose spends most of the year playing on the US PGA Tour but he does play in some of the bigger vents of the European Tour in order to keep his membership valid.
The South African born golfer made history when he won his first and only major in 2013, the US Open as he became the first Englishman since the legendary Nick Faldo to win a major title since 1996 as well as the first English golfer to win the US Open since Tony Jacklin achieved that feat in 1970.
Hailing from Johannesburg in South Africa originally, Justin Rose came into the limelight for the first time during the Open Championship of 1998 where he put in a brilliant display to finish tied for fourth as an amateur. More
