Just two weeks removed from winning the first gold medal in golf in 112 years, Justin Rose returned to the PGA Tour

for the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Preparing for the first playoff tournament, the Barclays at Bethpage Black in Farmingdale,

N.Y., Rose talked about traveling with the medal.

“Much easier to travel with than a normal trophy,” he said prior to the tournament.

“You can just kind of slip it in your pocket and then carry on. So yeah, it is traveling with me, yeah, so it’s around.

Maybe it’s something that I can keep in the golf bag or pop in the locker or something. It’s a unique and iconic thing, Olympic gold.”download Justin Rose With GOLD MEDAL

Rose clearly kept it nearby, with caddie Mark Fulcher walking it over to him to wear for his final putt on Sunday.

Though it was a lackluster tournament for him, finishing at just even par and 10 strokes off the lead at the time,

he made the most out of it by whipping out the gold medal to a thunderous crowd reaction on the 18th green.
