BBC Sport - Sports Personality: Justin Rose remembers his junior years
Rose remembers his junior years
- From the section Sports Personality
During the countdown to the 60th BBC Sports Personality of the Year award on Sunday 15 December, we will be looking at each of the 10 shortlisted contenders.
Sports Personality of the Year contender Justin Rose tells of how his late father would keep him motivated on the golf course with the promise of a train set.
The golfer won the US Open championship at Merion in June and dedicated his first major title to his father Ken, who died from leukaemia in 2002.
Rose movingly pointed to the sky after putting on the final green, as he became the first Englishman to win the US Open for 43 years, and the first to win a major since 1996.
