Rose was pretty happy with her play, considering she had just put a new set of Callaway XR Steelhead in her bag for their first competitive event. Rose was surprised that she was getting an extra 10 yards per club in distance. She had to adjust her new found distance’s on the fly. Rose and Anna “ham and egged” it to their qualifying score of 69 and was happy to qualify in the play-off.
Rose has been honored to be selected as a Team Callaway Junior Staff Member. Rose was recently fitted at the Ely Callaway Tour Fitting Center and was given all of the amenities given to PGA and LPGA Tour Player’s.
