On those greens, I might hit it 100 times and still not be that close.
Oh, you mean 100 separate attempts.....
Sure you all know this but:
Rose burst to world-wide prominence at The Open Championship in 1998. He holed a dramatic shot from the rough from about 50 yards for birdie on the 18th hole, to finish in a tie for fourth. He won the silver medal for the low amateur. The following day he turned professional.
After turning professional, Rose struggled badly in his early career. He missed the cut in his first 21 consecutive events. He earned his first European Tour card in 1999 when he finished 4th at the qualifying school. The following season he failed to retain his card, and had to revisit the qualifying school, where he finished 9th.
I am glad whenever success comes his way. He seems a likeable chap, and the start to his pro career was a nightmare given the build up he had from the Open.
