When young Englishman Justin Rose first came onto the World golf scene, as a 17-year-old amateur at the 1998 British Open, it was obvious that he was going to be a future star. Many expected Justin to go on to win many majors in his career, so it was surprising that it took him until this year to finally win one.
Now that Justin Rose has finally won that difficult first major, many expect him to go on and win plenty more in the coming years. With the final major of 2013, The PGA Championship, starting today, Justin is hopeful that he can win a second major.
Rose explained, "For me it’s all about doing simple things well, it’s not about doing anything funky. It’s about staying in the moment, staying in the present. I’ve never played well when I add things; it’s about getting rid of things for me.”
He added, “I think that’s what I did really well at Merion. If you can lose your cool a little bit on Thursday and Friday, you can’t really expect to keep it on Sunday."
Justin Rose tees off at 1:45pm, in group that everyone is excited about, as he is paired with Phil Mickelson, who won the British Open this year, and Adam Scott, who won the Masters.
