“Comeback Kid” Justin Rose Bounces Back From Horrific Start

After six holes of play on Thursday morning, Justin Rose was tied with Ted Potter Jr for last place at 4-over par. But starting on his seventh hole (No. 16), Rose came alive and reeled off seven birdies in a 10-hole stretch to get near the top of the leaderboard.

The 37-year old Englishman finished his final two holes par-par to sign for a 3-under par 69, and clubhouse position of T8.

Afterwards, Rose tweeted his scorecard with caption: “Comeback kid today…”

Potter Jr, by the way, finished with a pair of birdies, but it wasn’t enough to offset three more bogeys and a triple. The Pebble Beach winner carded 8-over par 80 to sit dead last.
