Justin Rose won the Quicken Loans National on the US PGA Tour following the first hole of a play-off with Shawn Stefani at Congressional. Rose used a TaylorMade SLDR driver, Tour Preferred MB irons and the yet to be released Ultimate Driving Iron. He wore Adidas Golf’s new adicross gripmore footwear and Ashworth Golf apparel throughout the tournament.
Although finishing runner-up Shawn Stefani along with Charley Hoffman, Ben Martin and Brendan Steele secured the four places on offer for The Open Championship following the final round. It will be Hoffman’s first appearance in The Open but his second in a major championship after he finished tied 59th in the 2013 US Open at Merion. He commented, “I have never been across the pond to play in Europe so I am really looking forward to it,” he said. “It is going to be a great experience to play for the first time in The Open Championship. I was just trying to play well and playing well here has put me in the Championship. Now I can put my focus on The Open which is going to be so huge for me. I will take a lot away from it.”
