Justin Rose will be confident of adding a second major title to his CV in 2018 after closing 2017 with an eight-stroke victory at the Indonesian Masters last week. Rose, the 2013 US Open champion, has been in blistering form since late August, finishing in the top 10 on each of his last 10 starts and winning on three of the last six. The Englishman had slipped down to 15th place in the 2016 year-end rankings, but is back up to sixth in the world and looks poised to go higher.
He came agonisingly close to winning his second major at April’s Masters, only to lose to Sergio Garcia in a play-off, but will be back at Augusta in four months’ time ready to push for the title once again. Rose has an outstanding record at Augusta, finishing no worse than a share of 39th in his 12 previous appearances and placing second, 10th and second in the last three years. Bet365 & Paddy Power make him a 20/1 chance.
