"Justin Peter Rose" (born 30 July 1980) is a South African-born English professional golfer who plays most of his golf on the PGA Tour, while keeping his membership on the European Tour. He won his first major championship at the 2013 U.S. Open (golf)/2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club, becoming the first English player to win a major since Nick Faldo in 1996 and the first to win the U.S. Open since Tony Jacklin in 1970.

I knew I had to go out and play a good round and make it mine. Guys are shooting 61 and 64 from behind you, so I needed to keep it moving forward.

I've learned this is a course you have to give a little bit of respect to.

I am hoping I can turn my form around as it is a lifelong ambition of mine to represent Europe in the Ryder Cup. The first European Tour event I will play in is the South African Open, but in the meantime I will be trying to improve my world ranking as that's another way of qualifying.

I?ve learned it?s a million miles from winning the tournament, and I think that has helped me. Obviously, there?s no point thinking about winning until Sunday. It can only get in your way until then.

I try to make a point of saying to myself, 'Well listen, it's out of the way. Now you don't have to worry about not making a bogey now. I got off to a slow start and felt sort of mentally I had to grind my way and fight my way back into it.

I?ve had the lead and, obviously, I?ve won four times (on the European PGA Tour). It feels like I haven?t been there in a while and certainly to lead by 4 at the halfway stage is a little different.

We've both worked hard on our games this year, and it's starting to pay off. It was nice playing with him today.

It got pretty hot, so the ball was going a long way. I managed to pull back, leave the driver in the bag and put it in play.

I think what I'm probably more pleased about than 12 birdies is the fact I've kept a bogey off my card.
