CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) _ Justin Rose took care of winning his first major championship last week.
This week is more about enjoying himself and playing with the confidence of a U.S. Open champion, Rose said Wednesday.
Rose, who is now ranked third in the world, leads a field of 156 players at the Travelers Championship, on the par-70 TPC River Highlands course that invites golfers to try for birdies. Last year’s winner, Marc Leishman, shot a 14-under par, 266.
“It’s a perfect week for the week after a major,” said Rose, who won last week with a score of 1-over 281. “It’s got challenges out there, but the challenge is, can you go low?”
