Justin Rose strikes the Payne Stewart pose at Pinehurst

Justin Rose wasn't able to win back-to-back U.S. Open titles, but that didn't stop him from ending his final round in style. Rose made a birdie on No. 18 then struck the same pose Payne Stewart did when he made a par on No. 18 to win the 1999 U.S. Open at Pinehurst.

The pose is one of the most famous in golf and has been forever enshrined with a statue at Pinehurst. Rose's pose to end his round is just one example of a few players honoring Stewart this week. Rickie Fowler wore knickers in the first round to honor Stewart.

The pin placement on Sunday was in the exact same spot as it was in 1999, when Stewart drilled that lengthy uphill putt to knock off Phil Mickelson. The triumphant pose is now commemorated in a statue at Pinehurst, one of the most identifiable landmarks on the grounds. How's Rose's pose match up? (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
