Justin Rose

The Open
comment on the article

How do you rate Justin Rose's chances at Birkdale this week?

news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/gol...

We all know what he did there as an amateur 10 years ago, but can he take advantage of the absence of Tiger Woods and win the thing?

Rose is the highest ranked British player in the tournament at number nine in the world rankings.

So where do you see him finishing come Sunday?

He can only play 2 out of the four rounds well good outside bet for top ten thats about it though!

The more he gets built up the worse he plays. At last year's Masters and US Open he wasn't lumped with so much pressure and played nicely. Kwini's right he's got little to show for this year

And i love the way Phil writes ;
'So where do you see him finishing come Sunday?'

A tad presumptious perhaps ?

Positive thoughts from Phil, just what Jusitn needs right now.

You wouldn't want him to miss the cut after all the hype that's surrounded his return to Birkdale.

No golfbug, i certainly would prefer an on form Rose on my ryder cup team than an on form
soren hansen dougherty wilson, and making top 10's is the best way Rose can do that.But unless he can pull 4 rounds out of the sky i can;t see him doing anything the way his played since round 2 of the masters ?

Funnily enough I think he might have a reasonable chance, boost to his confidence, likes a links and needs to do something fore the Ryder cup - he could be this years darkhorse.
PS not brave enough to use him in the predictor or fantasy league though!!

i think him jimenez and westwood will win it and maybe an outside chance of ernie, but he hasnt won anything in a while a lot of people are high prices because, there not use to links courses and this is why europeans traditionally do well as there use to it and ernie is too i cant see anyone expect them 4 winning it really.

I doubt he'll be involved come Sunday. I'd have money on his championship ending on Friday.
