Justin Rose’s winning Memorial clubs

Published:

TaylorMade staff player Justin Rose has fired himself back into Ryder Cup contention with victory in the 2010 Memorial Championship – and given the TaylorMade Rossa Corza Ghost its first worldwide Tour win.

Rose fired a six-under-par 66 in the final round to overhaul young American hopefuls Rickie Fowler and Ricky Barnes and claim his first Tour win in more than two years.

The 29-year-old has now propelled himself 33 places up the world rankings to 33rd and given himself a chance of clawing his way into Colin Montgomerie’s final team for Celtic Manor in October.

His victory also marks the first win for TaylorMade’s new Rossa Corza Ghost, which was officially launched only a few weeks ago at Wentworth. The putter is white, which is said to promote the biggest contrast against the putting surface which aids focus on the ball and the clubhead.

He said: “It’s a bit of a pun, but I putted scary good with my new Ghost putter. I couldn’t resist that one.
 
“I’ve got to be honest, putting is one part of my game where, you know, I’ve had some slight doubts. Today [Sunday] was fantastic because I felt like I putted my best under pressure. You know, once again, that’s something that I can really take or now dispatch out of my mind and really take positives going forward.”

Here’s what else Rose had in his bag:

DRIVER: TaylorMade Burner SuperFast (9.5°)
FAIRWAY WOOD: TaylorMade R9 (13°)
IRONS: TaylorMade R9 TP (3-PW)
WEDGES: TaylorMade TP xFT (54°), Cleveland 588 (60°)
PUTTER: TaylorMade Rossa Corza Ghost
BALL: TaylorMade Penta TP
