Justin Rose is already the proud inner of a major title, but that’s not enough. As 2015 commences, he is eager to convert more of his top ten finishes into victories.
Rose’s win at the US Open in Merion, Pennsylvania has undoubtedly been the highlight of his career to date. As well as that great accomplishment, the Englishman has also racked up another 12 wins, three of which were PGA Tour victories. Despite his well decorated career, Justin Rose is still hungry for more.
As the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship event nears, a tournament which he finished second place in 2013, Rose said: “I’d like to become a more prolific winner, winning multiple times in a season. That would be obviously a step up, what I view as a step up the ladder.”
Rose had a pretty successful year in 2014, with wins in both the Scottish Open and the Quicken Loans National on the PGA Tour. Aside from these, there was certainly no shortage of top ten wins.
“I have a lot of top 10s under my belt. I just need to find that one shot a round that potentially converts top 10s into wins.”
Reflecting on his past year, Rose has been trying to identify the weaknesses in his game and working on addressing these issues. He is under the firm belief that by improving upon these areas, he will be able to create opportunities to finish at the top of the table.
“It’s just subtle changes. I think my putting has come a long way. I just need to make more putts, and I think that’s coming. I think that will create a lot more chances and convert to wins.”
