Clarence Rose

Clarence Rose (born December 8, 1957) is an American professional golfer who has played on the PGA Tour and the Nationwide Tour.


Rose was born in Goldsboro, North Carolina, where he makes his home today. He attended Clemson University and was a member of the golf team, an All-American in 1980. He turned pro and joined the PGA Tour in 1981.

Rose has more than two dozen top-10 finishes including one win and six runner-ups in official PGA Tour events. He captured his first victory at the 1996 Sprint International in his 16th year on the Tour. His best finish in a major championship was T40 at the 1988 U.S. Open.

Rose took a hiatus from competitive golf in 1990 after learning his 18-month-old son, Clark, had testicular cancer. He played in just 18 events from 1992–1995. He established the Clarence Rose Foundation to help needy children in Wayne County, North Carolina.

After turning 50, Rose played several events on the Champions Tour.
