Justin Rose Leads 2016 Rio Olympics After 54 Holes


Great Britain’s Justin Rose shot a 6-under 65 to take the 54-hole lead in the men’s competition of Olympic golf. Rose sits at 12-under par for the Rio Olympics golf tournament. One back of Rose is 2016 British Open winner Henrik Stenson of Sweden (-11). Rounding out the top three is 36 hole leader Marcus Fraser of Australia who is at 9-under, three shots back of Rose.

This trio will be paired together in Sunday’s final round.


“It would mean an awful lot to win, especially when you see what it means to other athletes here,” said Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open winner. “It would be unbelievable.”

Bubba Watson, David Lingmerth, also of Sweden, and Emiliano Grillo of Argentina are tied fourth at 6-under, and will be grouped in the second to last tee time on Sunday.
