We thought we’d seen this movie before, and we were ready for yet another heart-wrenching ending. If past history were any indication, Sergio Garcia was supposed to lose this Masters in the clutch, not win it.

It was 1998 when we first met Justin Rose. Back then he was a green and grateful amateur, just 17 years old. But that week in July, he ignited the normally staid English crowd into one joyous celebration after another as he nearly won the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.
