Continuing its ‘Player Blog’ Series, the EuropeanTour.com hands the duties over to Justin Rose this week, as he hosts the Sky Sports British Masters.
The Englishman pens a nice expansive post on:
- Friendship (he gives his boyhood buddies 10 strokes during golf trips)
- Life (the last win his father witnessed before passing was the 2002 British Masters)
- Career (well, that’s below…)
One of the things that stood out is how Rose, at 38-years old, is aware of his legacy:
“Adding World Number One to that Gold Medal and my US Open victory is huge. When I look back on my career, 2018 will certainly be a special year. You always want to summarize your career in a couple of sentences, and I think I’ve added a couple of lines this year,” wrote Rose.
“Reaching World Number One is an achievement and a milestone that is huge to me. Obviously I want to get back there as soon as possible and winning the British Masters as tournament host would be a great way to do that.
“Winning the FedEx Cup was special too. Winning a season long event on any Tour – the Race to Dubai or the FedEx Cup – has greater meaning because they are based on consistency and your body of work, rather than getting hot one week.
“So I’ve added that string to my bow too, but to be a Major Champion, Olympic Champion and World Number One – that’s how I would choose to summarize my career.”
