Justin Rose In The Bag: US Open Winning Clubs


TaylorMade and Ashworth Golf staff professional Justin Rose pointed heavenward after tapping in for par on the 72nd hole at Merion on Sunday, a salute to his father after posting a one-over-par 281total  that earned him the 113th US Open Championship.

Rose’s bag included an R1 driver, RocketBladez Stage 2 Tour 3-wood, a combination set of RocketBladez Tour and Tour Preferred MB irons and three ATV wedges. Rose also became the first player to win a Major championship with TaylorMade’s LETHAL ball.

Down the stretch Rose hit two critical iron shots, his tee shot on the 229-yard par-3 17th, with a RocketBladez Tour 6-iron, and his 240-yard approach on the long par-four 18th, with a RocketBladez 4-iron.

Rose also used a 37-inch counterbalanced Spider Blade putter featuring a short-slant hosel, which helped him master the fast and tricky greens at Merion.

The 32-yearold, who wears Ashworth Golf apparel, also wore one-of-a-kind Ashworth Golf Cardiff footwear featuring his initials (JR) and his children’s names (Leo and Lottie) on the heel patch, in celebration of Father’s Day.

The win was the 20th worldwide victory for TaylorMade’s R1, the most adjustable driver TaylorMade has ever created, which now comes in black.
