KATE PHILLIPS

Justin Rose's wife, Kate Phillips, has been with him since the turn of the century. They met in 2000 when Rose's career was struggling to live up to the expectations of his fans, and Kate worked as an assistant at IMG.

Rose is not the only one who has sports ties; his wife Phillips is a former international gymnast who enjoyed a little stint as a professional. Phillips is also a graduate of the University of Sussex.

MASTER MERION

Aside from supporting her husband in his tournaments, Phillips also owns her own racehorse called Master Merion, a name picked as a subtle nod to her golfer husband. However, Rose claims he had nothing to do with the name.

Phillips was also the driving force behind her and Rose funding their ladies' tournaments called the Rose Ladies Series, where the couple donated about £35,000 to sponsor the events.
