Justin Rose is motivated like never before to get a good result in the PGA championship. Although he is now outside the top 50, his goals seem to be much bigger. "I feel like it's a valuable little reset I have," Rose said, as quoted by skysports.
"I've always tried to pride myself on how I play in majors and that's obviously the goal right now. "I'm working hard and feeling very motivated, to be honest with you. "I think that's what playing badly gives you.
It tells you what you've got to do to play better and sometimes that work will either feel daunting or exciting and I actually feel quite excited by the challenge of the work and the practice. "That's kind of been how I've always operated.
Sometimes it hasn't been the smoothest career but whenever my back has been against the wall, it does inspire me to do what it takes to get out of the position."
Justin Rose is ready
His desire for success is still there.
"One hundred per cent. I'm 41, time is ticking and you don't have forever to achieve those goals so it does feel like there's an intensity to the work. "There's still that belief there and that's the most important thing.
I still believe I have some fantastic days ahead of me on the golf course. I still feel very capable, my body's feeling good, I've got the experience under my belt." Most importantly, he seems to believe in himself and is ready to make a big move.
It is clear that Rose has quality, and now it remains to show that. "It's now down to form and execution and I feel like those parts of the puzzle are what you need. I definitely feel like I'm working smarter and in better directions and am gaining more direction.
