JUSTIN ROSE WINS 2017 WGC-HSBC CHAMPIONSHIP IN EPIC FASHION
Congratulations to Lamkin brand ambassador Justin Rose on his impressive victory at the WGC-HSBC Championship and second World Golf Championship title. Starting the windy final round 8 shots behind the leader, Rose shot an impressive 67 with 5 birdies on the back nine to win the tournament by 2 strokes. With this win Rose moves to No. 6 in the world rankings and gains great confidence heading into the new PGA tour season.
Rose said after the round “It was the perfect type of weather conditions to make a comeback,” “This is the type of day when you are playing with a lead, every hole seems difficult. Obviously, someone is still capable of playing a special round of golf. And my back nine was just amazing today.”
Justin Rose plays a custom R.E.L. ACE grip. The super-tacky ACE material and the surface texture of the R.E.L. grip promote an ideal light grip pressure to maximize shot distance and consistency. For his putter, Justin has the new FLAT CAT putter grip. FLAT CAT putter grip is unique in that each side is in a parallel plane with the putter face, allowing every golfer to establish a personal feel with the face of the putter, no matter their putting style.
