Justin Rose ended a four-year wait for his 11th PGA Tour victory with an impressive three-shot win at the weather-delayed AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California.
The 42-year-old took a two-shot lead into Monday’s fifth day at Pebble Beach Golf Links, with eight players separated by three shots, only to pull clear of the chasing pack with an excellent back-nine display.
The victory was his first since the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open, with his latest success earning him a spot at The Masters in April and boosting his hopes of qualifying for Europe’s Ryder Cup team this autumn.
Rose’s victory lifts him inside the top 10 of the FedExCup rankings and follows top-30 finishes in his previous four PGA Tour starts, with the success also elevating him back to 35th in the world rankings. The victory also marked the first time that a European player had won the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
““I feel like I have been fortunate enough to win at some great venues, but Pebble’s right up there” Rose said after his win. “My only goal these days is really to play well enough where I can win majors. And the No. 1 rule is, you’ve got to be in them. I haven’t been playing enough great golf of late, but when I do play half decent I do give myself chances to win. It was nice today to tee off with a lead. Obviously a win does give you a lot of belief. We always know we can do it, but sometimes you’ve got to see the proof.”
