Justin Rose, the reigning US Open champion has stated that the tendinitis problem in his right shoulder that has been troubling him for quite some time is close to being fully healed and he hopes it will be fully healed by the time the Masters event tees off in a few weeks’ time in April.
Speaking to the media before tee off at the World Golf Championship – Cadillac Championship, Rose stated that he took one week off from training as he looks ahead to the Masters. He mentioned that the shoulder injury has not eased off fully but it is on its way to being healed.
The Englishman mentioned that the tendon just gets angry if he pushes it too much.
He went on to add that although it is very uneventful, he has to be very meticulous as well as methodical in the way he warms up as well as use the ice to cool off and has to follow this method for the next couple of months and he is hopeful that he thinks it will be fine in due course of time.
Rose has hinted that he plans to take a two week rest as he builds up to the Masters tournament, but he also mentioned that he will change his plans if he thinks he needs a bit more playing time on the course.
The Englishman mentioned that he hasn’t hit as many balls as he has hit for some time but he also doesn’t believe that it is a factor if he doesn’t perform up to expectations.
That is just one way of easing pressure off himself as he knows he is not in the best shape to put up a title challenge at the Augusta National as the event tees off in the second week of April.
