Hampshire's Justin Rose has agreed a deal to become the official touring professional of Goodwood.

The world number six said he was thrilled to sign on as an ambassador for the club.

"I'm delighted to be announcing this partnership with Goodwood given the history and heritage of the Goodwood Estate and the fantastic facilities that they have to offer there," he said.

"I'm also excited by their ambitions for the development of their junior golf programme and hope to be a part of their plans for many years to come."

Stuart Gillett, general manager of Golf at Goodwood, commented: "We are thrilled to be working with Justin on the back of his great success last year and his heroics at The Ryder Cup.

"Justin is the perfect ambassador for us with his success both locally and nationally as a junior. This is an area we are committed to developing here at Goodwood and what better inspiration for the stars of tomorrow.

"We believe we offer a truly unique golf experience set alongside England's finest sporting estate and with Justin's involvement we look forward to taking Golf at Goodwood to a new level."
