Caddie misplaces Rose's driver before British Open
Posted July 17
HOYLAKE, England — Justin Rose played the first two holes of his opening round of the British Open without a driver after it was mistakenly removed from his golf bag by his caddie.
Rose's caddie, Mark Fulcher, had arranged to send two drivers to a couple of his friends in the south of England. Unfortunately, one of the drivers he gave away belonged to Rose.
The driver was eventually returned to Rose — but only after he started his round at Royal Liverpool.
Rose says "it was a bit of a comedic start to the day, no doubt."
The 2013 U.S. Open champion shot an even-par 72 to lie six strokes behind leader Rory McIlroy.
