Justin Rose eyes world number one, Rickie Fowler vows to win a major

(W88 Gamblers) - Justin Rose will become world number one if he wins the U.S. Open on Sunday while victory for Rickie Fowler would shed the American's label as the best player without a major title.

It has been five years since Rose, then 32, broke though on the biggest stage to win the 2013 U.S. Open at Merion.

World number seven Fowler, however, remains 0-for-33 in the four championships that largely define a player's career, a series of close calls only adding to his frustration and the latest coming at the Masters in April where he finished runner-up to Patrick Reed.

But victory at Shinnecock Hills this week could go to Rose, the second favourite behind Dustin Johnson.

Nobody is in better form than the Englishman who won the Fort Worth Invitational three weeks ago.

His long game as stellar as ever, Rose says winning often boils down to how well he putts.

The same applies to Fowler, at least the winning part.

He could hardly go into a tournament in a better frame of mind, after getting engaged to girlfriend Allison Stokke last week. For more information W88
