Justin Rose wins historic US Open

Ending 43 years of English drought, Rose became the first golfer from across the Atlantic since Tony Jacklin (1970) to win the U.S. Open.

Not even the fairytale story of Phil Mickelson, closer than ever to finally win the major championship that he treasures so much, could stop England's Rose winning his maiden major.

Rose finished for a 281 total, one par and, crucially, two shots ahead of Mickelson and Australia's Jason Day.

On a special day for fathers around the world, the moment was particularly poignant for Rose who lost his father Ken, to leukemia in 2002.

"It wasn't lost on me that today was Father's Day," said Rose who looked up to the heaven as he sunk his final putt.

"A lot of us come from great men and we have a responsibility to our children to show what a great man can be.

"For it to all just work out for me, on such an emotional day, I couldn't help but look up to the heavens and think that my old dad Ken had something do do with it."

Emotions were running wild at Sunday's climax, none more so than for Mickelson who has now finished as runner-up six times at this major.

For me, it's very heart-breaking," said Mickelson. "This was my best chance on a golf course I really liked. I felt like this was as good an opportunity as you could ask for and to not do it hurts."
