    2013 US Open, Golf

    Finally the wait is over and Englishman Justin Rose won his maiden major by +1 and 2 strokes ahead of Phil Mickekson (USA) and Jason Day (AUS)
    at the Merion Golf Club, Ardmore PA. On this extremely difficult 72 -hole course, the overall score wasn't really flattering and players like Tiger Woods +13 or Rory McIlroy +14 and other top players finished with pretty unusual scores by professional standard. Congrats to the first ever English U.S. Open Champion and the party can begin :-)

    Tony Jacklin, an Englishman, won the US Open in 1970. It's been awhile, but Justin Rose is not the first ever.
