JUSTIN ROSE came agonisingly close to snatching a Green Jacket last year, losing out to Sergio Garcia in a pulsating Masters play-off.
The Englishman has one Major to his name – the 2013 US Open – as well as an Olympic Gold, and has now been runner-up in the Masters twice.
Who is Kate Rose?
A FORMER international gymnast, Kate Phillips is a graduate from the University of Sussex and met Justin whilst an assistant at IMG.
The pair began dating in 2000 and Kate became a mainstay at tournaments as Justin overcame a dismal start to his pro career.
Rose has gone on to secure eight PGA Tour wins and 11 European Tour triumphs, as well as his Major win in 2013, with Kate regularly celebrating his victories with him out on the course.
What does the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation do?
THE couple have set up the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation to help children in need.
It aims to give under-privileged kids advice on nutrition, education and experience.
Rose said: “This program is very close to our hearts because Kate and I know Blessings in a Backpack fills a crucial void for children who might otherwise go hungry. I can’t expect to play good golf if I’m not properly nourished so how can we expect kids to go a full weekend with out enough to eat and then be able to focus on learning the next school week.”
How many children do they have?
THE pair have two children together.
Kate had Leo first in 2009 before Lottie followed in 2012.
