Golf Australia Express : December 2013
THAT WAS THEN... ...THIS IS NOW W E KNOW only too well that golf rarely plays to script. But for once, this year, it did just that with Adam Scott and Justin Rose both winning their first major titles in the same year. After years of trying to shake the 'unfulfilled talent' tag, these two former golf prodigies entered golfing immortality just nine weeks apart—Scott in April at The Masters and Rose at the US Open in June. Despite the geographical disparity of their home nations, these two popular players have led remarkably similar journeys to the top of world golf. Both have had to deal with incredible—and often unfair and misguided—hype over talents as youngsters. Scott was touted to replicate the heights of his idol Greg Norman, while Rose thrust himself onto the stage—and into the British headlines—after finishing fourth as an amateur at the '98 Open Championship. Labelled future major winners from the outset of their careers, the pressure to perform was undeniably intense. Little wonder the two became good friends over the years. At 32, they are now both major winners in their golfing primes. We salute two of the game's gentlemen on career-changing seasons. See the video above. OTG 2001 2013
