Justin Rose was on the verge of joining golf’s sub-60 club Sunday at the RBC Canadian Open, but a valiant three-eagle effort at St. George’s G&CC was thwarted by a closing bogey at the par-4 18th. Rose matched his career low with a 10-under 60, moving from T19 to inside the top five on the leaderboard.
On a festive Sunday afternoon outside Toronto, Rose started fast with a hole-out eagle from 137 yards on the par-4 first hole. He added birdies on 2, 5 and 7 before a dropped shot on the par-5 ninth, turning in 4-under 30.
Rose caught fire on his second nine with a birdie-eagle-birdie stretch on Nos. 10-12, including a 30-foot eagle at the par-5 11th. He went birdie-eagle on Nos. 14 and 15, both with putts from inside 7 feet, to move 11-under with three holes to play.
