Rose broke through to win the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club for his first major title. In the summer of 2016, he made history again by becoming golf's first Olympic gold medalist in 112 years as he edged Henrik Stenson by two strokes in Rio de Janeiro. He ended a four-year victory drought on the PGA Tour in February when he claimed the AT&T National Pro-Am at Pebble Beach. Rose was 17 when he made his major championship debut in 1998 in The Open Championship at Royal Birkdale, tying for fourth place thanks to a dramatic pitch-in on the 72nd hole. He owns 25 worldwide wins, 11 of which have come on the PGA Tour. When he won the 2019 Farmers Insurance Open at Pebble Beach, site of two U.S. Opens, he was the No. 1 player in the Official World Golf Ranking. He represented Great Britain and Ireland in the 1997 Walker Cup. He also has been a member of five European Ryder Cup teams.
