Justin Rose is having a busy week. Fresh off winning his first major by becoming the 2013 U.S. Open
champion, Rose has been making the media rounds in New York. That includes presenting the Top 10 List on Late Show with David Letterman
And Rose is still in the field for this week's Travelers Championship
on the PGA Tour. The defending champ is Marc Leishman, and the Hartford, Conn., tournament has a pretty good field for the week after a major. In addition to the newest major champ, other headliners include Nicolas Colsaerts, Jason Dufner, Lee Westwood, Webb Simpson, Ian Poulter, Hunter Mahan, Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Padraig Harrington, Zach Johnson and Bubba Watson.
In fact, it's a busy week throughout the golf world. That includes two amateur tournaments of note, the British Amateur
and the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links
. This is the second-to-last time the WAPL will be the played; the USGA announced earlier this year it is discontinuing the men's and women's Publinx events after 2014.
The European Tour is in Germany for the BMW International Open
, where Danny Willett is the defending champ. Ernie Els tops the field, which also includes Martin Kaymer, Matteo Manassero, Paul Casey and Sergio Garcia.
And Ai Miyazato is the defending champ at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship
on the LPGA Tour.
Justin Rose is the 2013 U.S. Open
champion. Can this Englishman win his home championship, the British Open
You probably remember that Rose first came to notice as a 17-year-old amateur, when he finished tied for fourth at the 1998 British Open. He turned pro immediately after and entered several years of serious struggles, at one point missing 21 cuts consecutively.
Now he's a major championship winner. Rose's results in the Open Championship aren't good, however. He's missed more cuts (four, including last year) than he has Top 10 finishes. In fact, Rose's only Top 10 in the British Open was that fourth place in 1998.
The defending British Open champ is Ernie Els
, and Els also won the last time the tournament was played at Muirfield
2013 Open Championship
When: July 18-21
Where: Muirfield, Gullane, Scotland
