The British Open will finally be orphaned by Justin Rose. Olympic champion in Rio in 2016 and winner of the US Open in 2013, the 41-year-old British golfer was forced to forfeit at the last minute on Thursday morning due to a back injury.
Justin Rose was originally scheduled to start in the 10th game of the first round with Italian Francesco Molinari and his compatriot Tommy Fleetwood. The one who remains as the very first Olympic golf champion has been replaced by the Japanese Rikuya Hishino.
The start of the British Open, fourth and last Major of the season, was given shortly after 6:30 am by the Scotsman Paul Lawrie, winner of the 1999 edition at Carnoustie. The successor to American Collin Morikawa on the winners of “The Open” will be known this Sunday.
