    ARDMORE, Pa. (AP) Justin Rose is the first Englishman to win the U.S. Open in 43 years.

    Rose shot a closing 70 Sunday at Merion Golf Club for a 1-over 281 total and his first major championship. He finished two shots ahead of Phil Mickelson and Jason Day.

    The 32-year-old Rose overcame his share of misadventures on a challenging course. He took the solo lead for good when Mickelson and Mahan both dropped shots at No. 15.

    He finished with a tap-in for par at the 18th, a hole that didn't yield a birdie over the final two rounds.

    It's been a long wait for England since Tony Jacklin won the trophy in 1970. Rose has been in contention before. He tied for fifth in 2003 and tied for 10th in 2007.
