Justin Rose has a lot of people to thank for his victory at Cog Hill on Sunday. Sure, he may give kudos to his wife, child, caddy, coach, etc. But who should he really be thanking? The fine golf clubs of Long Island, as Golf World’s Tim Rosaforte pointed out in a tweet to me on Saturday:
“@AJVoelpel Rose & Simpson America’s guests. Rosie to Sebonack, Garden City, National and Friar’s Head. Webb to Mid-Pines, Pine Needles, CCNC.”
That’s right, Rose took a buddy trip to Sebonack, GC, National Golf Links and Friar’s Head on his week off; pretty much the superfecta of classic Long Island golf courses. Yet another reason to root for the Englishman in the future.
