THEY'RE FEELING pretty good about themselves over in England - and understandably so. They sent young Justin Rose to Ardmore, Pennsylvania, right in the backyard where they lost their American Colonies 250 years ago, and he came back a United States Open champion.
The London Sun trumpeted it with the headline "It's Just Pa-fect."
It was a wonderful day for the English, who celebrated a U.S. Open win by one of their countrymen for the first time in 43 years.
"He finished like a true champion," Tony Jacklin told BBC Radio 5. "You have to stay in the moment, which sounds very easy but when the stakes are high it's very hard."
