Rose heads out to Jakarta early

6th December 2017, 17:11 by Simon Barlow

Justin Rose is heading to Jakarta for next week's Indonesian Masters - where his wife will make her debut as his caddy.

The world number six finished tied fifth at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas, where he lives, last week.

But, one year after he withdrew from the same event with a nagging back injury, Rose's punishing end-of-year schedule shows the Englishman is fully fit again.

The 37-year-old won the HSBC Champions in Shanghai and then went straight to the Turkish Airlines Open. He flew home to the Bahamas for one week before returning to Dubai for the DP World Tour Championship, then returned to the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge. After a week at home with friends, Rose and wife Kate are jetting out to Jakarta together.

"It's been a test - I can't lie," he said. "But I'm feeling good. I'm feeling really good."

The idea to have his wife on the bag at the Indonesia Masters was revealed last month after Rose finished tied 10th at the Hong Kong Open.

He said: "I enjoy [playing in] Asia. Going to have the missus caddy for me.

"It's over our wedding anniversary, so it's going to be a whole different type of challenge.

"Finish with a flourish and all that."
