JUSTIN ROSE | US OPEN

Justin Rose has referred to the US Open as the toughest mental test of any golf tournament as he goes in search of his second major win at Chambers Bay this week.


The 34-year-old overturned a two-shot deficit heading into the final day to land his maiden major title at Merion in 2013, denying Phil Mickelson the chance to complete a career grand slam.

“The week at Merion was fantastic but it was almost two weeks for me mentally,” said Justin Rose in a video clip with TaylorMade. “I felt prepared, more prepared than I have for any other golf tournament.

“I just felt very focused all week long, stuck to a game plan and discipline on the golf course because the US Open tests you mentally more than any other tournament.

“I accepted that Merion was the type of course that would tempt you into mistakes – and I made my fair share – but I felt it was one of the most clean mental performances I’ve had on the golf course."

Rose has been at Chambers Bay since Friday getting to grips with the course and will tee off alongside Jordan Spieth and Jason Day at 2.17pm local time (10.17pm UK time).
