Justin Rose hit one of the greatest shots in major the history of the Open Championship in 1998, holing out from the rough on the 18th hole. This moment was recaptured with the use of Legos.
When Justin Rose holed out from the rough at the 1998 Open Championship as a 17-year old, it was one of the great shots in tournament history. Rose would go on to finish in fourth, but go on have a legendary career which includes 18 worldwide wins, a U.S. Open, and an Olympic gold medal.
Not only that, he finished runner-up at this year’s Masters, losing to Sergio Garcia as we all know by now.
A man recreated Rose’s special shot in 98′ with a set of Legos. It was recaptured in a unique, and colorful way. And just to think, at the time, Rose wasn’t that far removed from the age of kids who played with Legos.
Only with Legos, video games and such can we see anyone hole out with one hand. This is what you see in the video as mini J-Rose is a god, making the shot look easy.
It was a shot for the ages, and little did anyone know Rose would become a legend in this sport. This clip is a fun way to celebrate the finish of the first round of The Open. It’s going to be a great weekend at Royal Birkdale.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio! I can’t recreate magical moments in golf history with Legos, but I can make a dude sink a tap-in putt for birdie with Legos (to win The Open, mind you….)!
