Despite travelling around three continents in as many weeks, England's Justin Rose insists fatigue won't be a factor for him at this week's Australian Open.

"Physically I'm hanging in there," Rose noted, despite playing in Dubai and South Africa in the two weeks leading up to the event Down Under.

"I had a good night's sleep last night. That's always the key when you have a big time zone change.

"Physically I still feel pretty fresh to be honest and I'm looking forward to ending the season on a high note.

"The Australian Open is a tournament that has a great, illustrious list of champions.

"It's a tournament that I've always held in high regard and I felt like it would be a nice way to finish the year."

At number four in the world Rose is the highest ranked player in the field in Australia and is confident of winning his first Stonehaven Cup.

"My goal, obviously, this week is to end with another win but more importantly it's to end the year with a disciplined process," he continued.

"I don't want to take my eye off the ball - it's the end of the year, you're tired - I want to come here sharp, I want to trust everything that's worked well for me all year long.

"So from that perspective, stay focused, prepare as hard as I can and as well as I can.

"You can never guarantee a result in golf, obviously, but what you can do is go out and be disciplined about your work ethic and that's my goal this week."

Rose will be playing alongside localt favourite Adam Scott in the opening two rounds.

"That's a great draw for me. Adam, I regard as one of my best friends out on tour as well," he said.

"We're both incredibly competitive but we're also good friends.

"The great thing about golf is you play the golf course. You're not really eye to eye, head to head, especially on days one and two.

"It will be a fun pairing.

"The Aussie boys ... you see the conditions out there this week, these are pretty tough, testing conditions.

"I think that's what makes Australian players such good players because you grew up on great golf courses, you grew up in windy conditions and they're going to be certainly very hard to beat this week."
