In a visual shared on Facebook, the French Golf Federation announced the presence of Justin Rose at the upcoming FedEx Open de France at Le Golf National, from October 10th to 13th. Following Matthieu Pavon, a second renowned player has confirmed his participation in the upcoming FedEx Open de France.

It's the English golfer Justin Rose, 43 years old, currently ranked 64th in the world. This will be the sixth time the 2016 Olympic Games winner will compete in the event, having previously participated in the 1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, and 2012 editions.

Having primarily played on the PGA Tour, Rose's best result in France was a third-place finish in 2003, behind Englishmen Philip Golding and David Howell. He will aim to succeed last year's winner, Japanese player Ryo Hisatsune.

The Open de France 2024, which now has FedEx as its title sponsor, will take place at Le Golf National as it has since 2002. The oldest tournament on the European continent (established in 1906), scheduled from October 10th to 13th, 2024, with a prize fund of $3.25 million, is likely to move to St-Nom-la-Bretèche in 2025 due to the extensive construction work involved in building Grand Paris's line 18.

Tickets for the 2024 edition are already available for purchase online (here). Prices range from 25 to 40 € depending on the day, with a four-day pass available for 90 €. Justin Peter Rose, MBE, born on July 30, 1980, is an English professional golfer known for his remarkable career achievements.

Rose garnered significant attention in 1998 when he finished fourth at the Open Championship as an amateur. The very next day, he turned professional, although his initial years were challenging, marked by few cuts. However, Rose's fortunes changed in the early 2000s when he secured his first European Tour victory in 2002 and went on to lead the tour's Order of Merit in 2007.

He then shifted his focus to the United States, where he tasted success by winning several prestigious tournaments, including a notable victory at the 2013 U.S. Open. Rose's success continued, as evidenced by his gold medal win at the 2016 Summer Olympics and a runner-up finish at the 2017 Masters.

In 2018, he achieved the top spot in the world rankings for the first time, cementing his status as one of the premier golfers of his generation. Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, to English parents Annie and Ken, Rose relocated to England at the age of five.

He began playing golf at Tylney Park Golf Club before transitioning to other clubs like Southwood Golf Club, Hartley Wintney Golf Club, and North Hants Golf Club, all situated near his home in Hook, Hampshire. Rose demonstrated his talent early on, breaking 70 for the first time at age 11 and achieving a plus three handicap by age 14.

Rose's amateur career saw him compete in the Walker Cup in 1997 at the age of 17. However, it was his performance at the 1998 Open Championship at Royal Birkdale Golf Club that propelled him to global recognition. With a dramatic shot from the rough for birdie on the 18th hole, Rose secured a tie for fourth place, earning him the silver medal for the low amateur.
