Rosie’s The World’s Best Golfer!
England’s Justin Rose, the reigning 2016 Olympic gold medallist in golf has ascended to the top spot in world golf.
He became the world number one for the first time after finishing in second place at the BMW Championship in Philadelphia. He replaces Dustin Johnson after losing a play-off to American Keegan Bradley. He and Bradley finished on 20 under par after a rain-delayed final round and the 2011 US PGA champion required just one extra hole to seal victory.
Rose bogeyed the par-four 18th to hand the 32-year-old American his fourth PGA Tour win.
Rose, who last week finished two shots back as Bryson DeChambeau won the Dell Technologies Championship, is just the fourth Englishman to top the world rankings, after Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald.
