Golf news: Justin Rose wants Scottish Open title to propel him to major glory

The World No 3 will tee it up at Gullane as a Major winner and Olympic champion but, as he prepares to turn 38 later this month, he feels the time is right to move into the next bracket as a golfer.

He has next week’s Open Championship at Carnoustie circled as the vehicle to take him there and the Scottish Open as a vital part of the ignition sequence with six out of the last eight Open champions having tuned up for their Claret Jugs in Scotland the week before.

“You start edging towards a Hall of Fame career then when you win multiple Majors for sure,” said Rose.

“I feel like my career has been one Major and a lot of other good stuff, which is nice, but just one Major. I haven’t really kicked on from that point of view. I think winning the second is very important just in terms of where you’re perceived in the history of the game.

“The icing is on the cake but I’m looking for a little bit of cherry and decoration and sprinkles from this point on. It’s been a great 20 years but I really feel like there’s an opportunity now for me to make it something special and an Open would be amazing.

“For me, the next two weeks are a body of work all together, hopefully with the peak being a week on Sunday but with steps along the way.

“Carnoustie is probably in the top half of my favourites Open venues and I think it’s a huge advantage to be playing here this week. I think it’s very tough to show up and click into links golf, especially with the course playing as it is now.

“The year Phil (Mickelson) won at Muirfield, it was as brown as this and I remember hitting tee shots and thinking: ‘how do you stop it under 400 yards?’ on certain holes.”

Masters champion Patrick Reed, who is one of a healthy scattering of top Americans in the Scottish Open field, tested out Carnoustie on Sunday and Monday and rated it the firmest course he has ever played. If the concrete Open is looming, Gullane will not be far behind.

“We all know the weather we’ve been having so it truly is a links test out there,” said Rose, who won the Scottish Open in 2014. “The ball is running forever and there’s hills to contend with as well which is going to accentuate the run on the ball so there will be a lot of strategy.”
