ST ANDREWS, September 27, 2019 – Justin Rose’s 28 sees him soar up the leaderboard.
A remarkable first nine of 28 at Kingsbarns saw Justin Rose move into contention halfway through the second round of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship.
The World No 4’s tour de force included an eagle and six birdies. The question was being asked: could he be on for a 59? But a double bogey six at the 11th was a setback.
With six holes to go in his round he was two shots behind leader Matthew Jordan, who shot 29 around the first nine at St Andrews.
Rory McIlroy had also started strongly with an eagle and three birdies in his first four holes at Kingsbarns, eventually finishing with a 66 to be eight-under-par.
