Rosie, Justin Rose wins the Zurich Classic, in fine fashion at TPC Louisiana, firing 65 and 66 in the final rounds today. Birdies on the last two hole set up the win.
Justin has now won in six consecutive PGA TOUR seasons, and he is excited about the rest of this season, after he finished here with 65 & 66 for a -22 under par winning total;
“I’m really excited about the rest of the year now.”
“Six years in a row is not easy to do, and I’m actually incredibly grateful and proud of that stat.”
“It’s a good momentum starter for me. I tried to tell myself that this year for me is going to be about April to September, when the big tournaments come around, that’s when I want to play well.”
“You look at Rory’s year last year, it was all about how he played in the summer. I’m very happy it turned around this week in a major championship.”
“It’s an event I’ve played many times. I feel like year in and year out I’ve been closer and closer, and I always joke with the Zurich guys that this is my fifth major.”
“They’ve become such good friends of mine. Any win is sweet but when you get to share it with people you’re close to, it’s fantastic.”
“Earlier this year, it looked impossible to win, I was struggling with my game, and when you are struggling with your game, sometimes winning seems very far off.”
“As a player to make the putt exactly when you need to is huge, I don’t think I’ve made a putt to win a PGA TOUR event outright like that before. That was the first time I’ve had a significant length putt to win.”
Alone in second place was Cameron Tringale, a final round -7 under par 65 nearly getting him into a playoff. He needed to chip in at the par 5 last hole for an Eagle to equal Rosie’s score, the attempt came up inches short.
Boo Weekley came in third at -20 under par, he also shot a final round -7 under par 65.
The scoring was particularly low for the third and fourth rounds, because of the wet conditions the players were allowed to lift clean and place the ball, on the fairway.
