Justin Rose falls just short of a round under 60 at the Canadian Open with a bogey on the 18th

Justin Rose narrowly missed the lowest round in PGA Tour history in a remarkable finish at the RBC Canadian Open in Toronto.

Rose entered the final round seven strokes back and with little realistic hope of vying for a first PGA Tour victory since 2019, only to charge the standings with an incredible display on the par-70 course at Royal George’s Golf and Country Club.

The former world No. 1 scored three eagles and seven birdies on a special Sunday, although three bogeys left him settling for a 10-under 60, just before carding only the 13th round under 60 on the PGA Tour.

“I’m totally disappointed, because you know what’s at stake, that’s for sure,” Rose said. “You really only play the last hole – I’ve never shot 59 before – so that would have been a nice footnote to the week.

“I don’t know how much control I had or not, but I could have made it so we were just between two clubs and a decision and I got the decision wrong and paid the price. Those are the things that happen and it’s amazing how those situations turn out in the end.”

Rose drilled 137 yards for an eagle on the first par four and birdied the next one before breaking through eight feet to save the par on the third, then taking an eight-foot shot on the fifth.

The former US Open champion drilled from the green on birdie seventh, but bogeyed the par-five ninth after finding the fairway bunker off the tee and three putts from the fringe, seeing him reach the 30-turn.

Rose followed a 20ft birdie on the 10th with a 30ft eagle on the par-five next, before a birdie tapped on the 12th and a six-foot gain on the 14th took it to nine under for the round with four holes still to go. to play.

The Englishman’s brilliant approach in the par-five 15 set up a seven-foot eagle to bolster hopes of a sub-60 lap and put Jim Furyk’s record ’58 laps’ under threat, only to that he fails to get up and down from a greenside bunker to save par at the par three 16th.

Rose recovered in style to leave herself a birdie on the 17th, only to boge the par-four last after skirting the final green and being unable to get up and down thick grass.

A par at the last would have seen Rose become the first player to break 60 on the PGA Tour with multiple bogeys in one round, while a ’59 round’ would have been the first on the US Tour since Scottie Scheffler’s effort during the Northern 2020 Confidence.

Furyk recorded his 12 under 58 at the 2016 Travelers Championship, after posting a 59 three years earlier at the BMW Championship, with Al Geiberger, Chip Beck, David Duval, Stuart Appleby, Paul Goydos, Justin Thomas, Adam Hadwin, Brandt Snedeker, Kevin Chappell and Scheffler the others to record totals under 60.
