Rose keen to be history maker
Justin Rose believes he is finally starting to live up to the huge expectations that were placed on his shoulders from an early age.
The 38-year-old won his first title as world number one at the weekend when holding off Adam Scott to win the Farmers Insurance Open, and is hoping for another big year.
Rose has now won more PGA Tour titles than any fellow Englishman, past and present, and also has a Major and Olympic Gold in the bag, but says only now does he feel as though he has lived up to expectations.
“I want to chase history, my legacy in the game. I’ve had a great career but I’m on the verge of making it a special career, so I think that’s what interests me now for sure," Rose told Golf Monthly.
“The FedEx Cup is wonderful but it’s about the achievement of winning something season-long. That’s obviously a big cheque but honestly I look at the FedEx Cup in my trophy room and that’s what it’s about for me.
“I feel like I’m beginning to finally fulfilling my potential that people have always told me that I’ve had."
