Justin Rose praises coach Sean Foley

June 19, 2013

Justin Rose has paid tribute to coach Sean Foley after picking up his maiden major title with a superb victory at the US Open. The 32-year-old Englishman carded a final-round 70 under intense pressure from Phil Mickelson and the daunting Merion course to finish two shots clear of the field and lift the prestigious trophy. It was a fitting reward for the Ryder Cup star, who has had to wait 15 years to win one of the big four events after turning professional as a teenager back in 1998.

The South African-born ace impressed everyone with the way he handled himself after being presented with the trophy and, as the dust has now finally settled on the year's second major, Rose has taken time to thank the man who has helped him become one of the best players on the planet over the last four years. "For me to come into a US Open and feel like this is one of my legitimate chances to win a major is a testament to my ball striking," he said.

"Last year I was leading both tours in greens in regulation and this year there's been a big improvement in my driving stats. "I picked up a little bit of yardage and was hitting it a little bit straighter so I've got to give a lot of credit to Sean."

Rose will have little time to celebrate his victory as he has confirmed his participation in this week's Travelers Championship in Connecticut.
