He successfully defended his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship title in 2018 and he came agonisingly close to a first Major Championship when he finished runner up in the US Open Championship at Shinnecock Hills, posting a final round 63 – the equal lowest in a US Open and the lowest final round in any Major Championship – to finish one shot behind Brooks Koepka.
I was a bit skeptical about spending $10 or so a month on two blokes telling me how to swing a golf club on the net, how wrong was I. I just wanted to... say a massive thank you to you both, my game has improved so much in the 4 months that I've been a member and now all I want to do is play or hit balls at the range. Also, Andy did a little segment on chipping from the rough and coming down onto the ball.....well anyway I had a shot like that and I thought to myself what did the boys tell me to do. I was literally 5cm away from the water in sand with little back swing, so I've come down on to the ball and I got out (it didn't go far, but I got out) with out dropping a shot, so again thank you so so much for your great videos, loving every one of them. Cheers! Read More

BMW Masters: Managed to shoot an even-par 72 on a difficult scoring day in the final round of the European Tour's BMW Masters in Shanghai but fell a stroke short of the Marcel Siem-Ross Fisher-Alexander Levy playoff that Siem won. Opened with another even-par effort then put himself into contention with a 65-64 in the second and third rounds at Lake Malaren GC in October 2014.
I started to play golf more seriously over the last couple of years. I needed to look at my swing and how to be more consistent. I viewed a lot of on-... line coaching videos, but nothing seemed to connect with me until I came across “Meandmygolf”. Both Piers and Andy seems to explain the fundamentals in a way I understand. All the help and practice has taken me from a 24 handicap to a 16, and I am looking to get down to single figures this year with the help of Meandmygolf #takecharge. Read More
I have been playing with Wilsons for years and way back in the 80s also and have everything since the C100s including the C300 and C300 forged and V6s. Love em all, along with the Triton and Cortex and a set of D7s which the Driver is great. I like the Blades but at my age the CBs are more practical. But I have never had any trouble getting anything Leftie. They are all fine clubs and as a former Teacher and Club Maker are real quality.

In March 2011, Rose had a chance to add to his two PGA Tour titles won in 2010, when he entered the final round at the Transitions Championship with a one-stroke lead. However, he shot a three-over-par 74, which included four consecutive bogeys in the middle of the round, to finish five shots behind the champion Gary Woodland. In September 2011, Rose won the BMW Championship, the third of the four FedEx Cup playoff events at Cog Hill Golf & Country Club. This was his first title of the year and third career PGA Tour win. Rose entered the week on the playoff bubble at 34th in the standings, knowing that he needed a good finish to make the final event at East Lake Golf Club. The win elevated him to 3rd in the standings and the position of knowing that if he won the Tour Championship he would be the FedEx champion. A flawless round of 63 on the opening day helped Rose to build a four stroke advantage going into the final round, and even though there was a late wobble with a bogey at the par five 15th, Rose recovered and won by two strokes from John Senden. Rose did not enjoy the same success at the Tour Championship though, when a second round 75 ended his chances of winning. He finished the tournament in a tie for 20th place and 5th on the overall FedEx Cup Standings.
Sentry Tournament of Champions: Collected second runner-up result of the season at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, finishing one shot behind Xander Schauffele at 22-under 270.

Fell to 0-for-7 with the 54-hole lead/co-lead at stroke-play events in his career (converted 54-hole lead to victory at the 2013 Reno-Tahoe Tournament, which used Modified Stableford scoring format). Prior to four rounds in the 60s for the week (67-67-68-68), had just one sub-70 scores in eight rounds at the event (67/R3/2014). Received word Friday night that his grandmother had passed away in Kansas.
In February 2019, Woodland invited Amy Bockerstette, a collegiate golfer with Down syndrome, to play the par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale during a Tuesday practice round at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. After hitting her tee shot into a greenside bunker, Bockerstette surprised Woodland by parring the hole in front of a roaring crowd. The PGA Tour's video capturing the moment went viral, receiving 43 million views across various social media platforms.

AT&T National: Held on for a victory at the AT&T National, his second victory of the season and of his career. Held a five-stroke lead entering the final nine, hit every green in regulation and made seven consecutive pars to finish the tournament and beat Ryan Moore by one stroke. Moore one-putted his last eight greens, including a 12-foot par putt on the 18th hole, for a Sunday-best 65 to make it a battle. Rose two-putted up a dangerous ridge on the tough 17th for par. And with the Fourth of July fireworks booming in the distance, he hit the fairway and green for one last par on the final hole. Rose finished the AT&T National at 10-under 270.
CIMB Classic: Opened 71-70 at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia then put himself into contention with a third-round, 6-under 66 at Kuala Lumpur G&CC.
