Justin Rose whipped out his Olympic golf gold medal on Sunday in the final round of The Barclays.

Seemingly pushed by final-round playing partner Phil Mickelson, Rose wore his Olympic gold medal -- which just happened to be in his golf bag -- while tapping in his final putt at Bethpage Black. The power move drew cheers from the Long Island crowd. Mickelson even put on Rose's gold medal.

It's a great impression of Jay Sherman when he was on "The Simpsons."


The medal-draped par at the last gave Rose an even-par 71 on the day and put him at even-par 284 for the week. Rose will comfortably move on to the next stage of the FedEx Cup playoffs, the Deutsche Bank Championship, reserved for the top 100 players in the points standings after this week.
