Justin Rose wins 113th US Open

On this day in 2013, Justin Rose won the 113th US Open by two shots from Phil Mickelson and Jason Day, becoming the first English winner of the event since Tony Jacklin in 1970 at Hazeltine.

It was also the first Major victory for an Englishman since Nick Faldo at the 1996 Masters, 68 Major championships earlier. Rose became just the ninth Englishman to win the US Open, following Horace Rawlins (1895), Joe Lloyd (1897), Harry Vardon (1900), George Sargent (1909), Ted Ray (1920), Jim Barnes (1921), Cyril Walker (1924) and Tony Jacklin (1970). His winning score at Merion Golf Club was 281 (1 over par).

For runner-up Mickelson, it was the sixth time he had finished second in his national open.
