Golf Australia Express : Issue 39
L IKE A FINE WINE, Justin Rose gets better with age. The 31-year-old Englishman struggled at the outset of his career, missing the cut in each of his first 21 events. Yet he has developed into a world-class performer on both sides of the Atlantic. The world No.6 has a sharp iron-game to thank for his pressing rise to the top. Rose collected his fourth PGA Tour title at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in March, adding to his 2011 BMW Championship and 2010 Memorial and AT&T wins. For the first time in his nine-year PGA Tour career, the Brit is hitting more than 70 per cent of greens in regulation. That’s good enough to rank third on Tour this season, a remarkable improvement from his 170th ranking in 2008 when that average was a paltry 61.85%. Rose isn’t concerned his numbers off the tee aren’t up there with the big bombers. With one win, five top 10s and more than $2.5 million in the pocket to date this season, the only number he’s focussing on is the yardage to the hole. And if he continues to improve his GIR average there’s another number sure to skyrocket, too: his number of wins.
