Can Justin Rose keep the Rose train going by following up Rose Zhang’s big-time LPGA victory last week by getting it done at the RBC Canadian Open?

Despite reaching the age of 42 where most players start to decline, Justin Rose is finding a career renaissance.

His win this year at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am highlights four top-10s and eight top-25s in the 2022-23 PGA Tour season.

Rose comes to Canada on a streak of six straight made cuts, all T-36th or better. That includes T-6th at the Players Championship and T-9th at the PGA Championship.

He also comes to Canada rested, having skipped last week’s designated event at the Memorial Tournament. Rose’s last start resulted in T-12th a couple weeks ago at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

The Englishman ranks 12th on the PGA Tour this season in total strokes gained per round (1.338). He’s gaining in every category, including off-the-tee where he’s 23rd (.945).

Rose is fifth in overall average approach proximity (34’11”). He’s 11th from 175-200 yards (31’8”) and 13th from 150-175 (25’8”).

Taking advantage of the par-5s this week appears to be an important factor. Rose is second in birdie or better percentage when going for the green (70.83%).

After Colonial, Rosey climbed into the top 30 in the Official World Golf Ranking for the first time since 2020.

He expects to be a popular dark horse pick to win his second major, and second U.S. Open, next week at Los Angeles Country Club.
