Hong Kong Open set for Dustin and Justin show
Former US Open champion Justin Rose and the man who agonisingly lost on the final green at the event this year, big-hitting Dustin Johnson, will headline a revitalised 2015 Hong Kong Open, it was announced Thursday. American Johnson and Englishman Rose, ranked fifth and seventh in the world respectively, confirmed their entries to Asia’s oldest professional tournament which is re-emerging as one of the region's premier golf events after several years in the doldrums. It has also been reinstated as the final event of the regular European Tour season for the first time since 2012, which makes it a pivotal date immediately preceding the highly lucrative "Final Four" playoff series of tournaments in the "Race to Dubai" for which only the top 60 on the money list will qualify.

Brady issued his statement a day after National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell upheld a four-game suspension of the quarterback for his part in an alleged scheme to deflate footballs below league standards in the game that put the Patriots in the 2015 Super Bowl. A ball inflated below NFL standards could make it easier to grip, especially in cold weather games.
