win many more majors over the coming years but the most important thing for the Englishman will be to try not to change anything.
Els, who won his first major at the US Open back in 1994, knows exactly the kind of strain and focus that Ro
se will be under when he returns to the course in Europe but, according to him, it is vital that he continues to manage his time and approach tournaments in the same way.
“When Justin returns to Europe, as he will do for The Open, he is going to receive an enormous amount of demand on his time, so for him to stay focus and stay on his game plan, that’s then going to be the biggest challenge,” said the 43 year old South African, according to the home of golfing online
Els, who is the reigning Open Champion having won the title at Lytham and St Annes in 2012, was keen to stress that, despite the extra media attention, if Rose manages to maintain some normality, then he can approach this year’s Open with confidence.
“My advice to him will be not to change anything and, while it will be a little difficult for him, I think he’s going to have a whole lot of confidence going into next month’s Open Championship,” he said, before adding that he has high expectations of the 32 year old for the future. “Now that Justin’s won his first Major, he can just kick on now and win many more majors,” he said.
Justin Rose will enter this year’s Open Championship at Muirfield in the form of his life and if, ahead of the tournament’s start on the 18th July, he can continue to work at his game and approach the tournament with his usual game plan, then he could be in with a great chance of following up his first major win with a second.
