Made his Major Championship breakthrough at the U.S. Open in 2013, finally fulfilling the potential he had shown as an amateur when he finished fourth in the Open Championship in 1998. Won by two shots at Merion GC, holding off Phil Mickelson and Luke Donald, and jumped to a career-best third in the Official World Golf Ranking. With his maiden Major secured, Rose continued to perform consistently, sealing his seventh European Tour victory at the 2014 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open on his way to finishing third in the Race to Dubai. Also played a leading role in The Ryder Cup at Gleneagles that year, remaining undefeated and claiming four points out of a possible five as Europe cruised to a 16½-11½ victory. Rose claimed the UBS Hong Kong Open in 2015 by one shot after a final round battle with Lucas Bjerregaard but his most recent victory was one for the history books, gold for Great Britain as he overcame Henrik Stenson on a dramatic final day of the Olympic Men's Golf Competition in Rio de Janeiro as the sport made its return after a 112 year absence. Having won the Harry Vardon Trophy in 2007, he was in contention to repeat the feat in 2013 after consecutive top five finishes leading up to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, but was pipped to the crown by an in-form Henrik Stenson and had to settle for third place, one lower than in 2012, when he won his first WGC title, the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Arguably his finest moment of that year, however, came at The Ryder Cup, where he secured a vital point against Mickelson in the Sunday singles as Europe produced a magical comeback at what is now known as the 'Miracle of Medinah'. Moved to England from South Africa at the age of five, when he started to play seriously at Hartley Wintney GC and North Hants GC, both near his Hampshire home. First broke 70 aged 11, and was playing off a handicap of plus three at 14. Played in the 1997 Walker Cup aged just 17 years and ten days.
