Justin Rose returns to world top 50
June 7, 2010

Justin Rose won the Memorial Tournament presented by Morgan Stanley with a brilliant 66 at Muirfield Village to claim his first PGA Tour victory. Rose ran off three straight birdies before the turn, made a 20-foot par putt to keep his momentum, then seized control when Rickie Fowler took a double bogey with a tee shot into the water on the 12th hole. Fowler shot 73 to finish three shots behind and break into the World Top 50 in 32nd place. Winner Rose moves back into the world top 50 with a 33 spot jump to 33rd.

Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell also consolidated his position in the World's Top 50 with victory at the Celtic Manor Wales Open for an eight spot jump to world number 36. A closing 63 for a 15 under par total of 269 gave McDowell, winless since the 2008 Barclays Scottish Open, the €350,940 first prize by three and left Rhys Davies a runner-up for the second week running, but with the consolation of a place in the world top 50 in 45th.

This week's other winners were Katsumasa Miyamoto at the Japan Golf Tour Championship Shishido Hills on the Japan Tour, Tommy Gainey at the Melwood Prince George's County Open on the Nationwide Tour, Martin Wiegele at the Karnten Golf Open by Markus Brier Foundation on the Challenge Tour and Brock MacKenzie at the Times Colonist Open on the Canadian Tour.
