The week in golf

Player of the week

Justin Rose. He might have crushed the heart of Phil Mickelson (and all those in Lefty’s camp), but Rose deserved to win the 113th US Open because he played the best, kept his golf ball in play, and made enough birdies in the final round (five) to offset the bogeys you knew everybody would be making. Rose, in the opinion of many of his peers, has been the best ball striker in golf the past few years. Now he has the hardware to prove it. Want to see him? He’ll be playing this week at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Conn.
