Justin Rose has become one of the most established players in golf, but who is his caddie?
Like Rose, the man who carries his bag comes with plenty of experience and goes by the name of Josh Cassell.
Justin Rose’s caddie is a veteran of the PGA Tour, having worked with a host of top players across the United States since 2000.
Before working with the 2013 U.S. Open champion, Cassell most recently worked with Daniel Berger, and the American played a part in the rising star’s success.
The Englishman lifted his first title in four years with a win at the 2023 edition of the California event, and the first win with his new caddie on the bag.
Justin Rose’s caddie also has previous work experience with other professionals such as Jason Dufner, Billy Horschel, John Senden, Paul Gow, Aaron Baddeley, and Geoff Ogilvy.

Cassell, who grew up in Fountain City, Knoxville, states: “Having the opportunity to make a difference in the players performance when trying to win a golf tournament,” is the best thing about being a caddie.
Since regaining the winning thread in the 2023 season, Justin Rose has skyrocketed back up the official world golf rankings to move back in the top 50.
The former world number one had plummeted to No. 84 in the rankings in early 2023 and was ranked 71st heading into the winning week at Pebble Beach.
That was a long-awaited triumph since 2019, and in that time, Just Rose has had several caddies.
Heart surgery forced his long-term caddie Mark ‘Foochy’ Fulcher off the bag, so Rose joined forces with Gareth Lord.
Justin Rose changed caddie again in 2021, as he turned to David Clark, a long-time friend and past colleague.
But Rose returned to his long-time caddie Fulcher, who was back on the bag for his sixth Ryder Cup in 2023 at the Marco Simone Golf & Country Club.
