Rose backs himself
Last updated: 19th February 2013
Justin's Rose's sterling performances last year, makes him a favourite at the Match Play Championship.
Rose feels the confidence gained from his singles victory against Phil Mickelson at Medinah Country Club, during the 2012 Ryder Cup, will stand him in good stead of this week's tournament.
"I definitely would like to ride that wave of momentum and confidence," said Rose
ahead of his first round tie against South Korea's KJ Choi.
"There was a couple matches in Turkey that I pulled off a shot when I had to. Obviously in The Ryder Cup against Phil I pulled off a shot when I had to," added a determined Rose.
"You can't always call on that on demand and you always need a little bit of fortune to hit the right shot at the right time, but certainly the lesson I learned from those experiences is to be patient, even if you get down in a match, keep doing your thing and limit the mistakes and just believe that you can turn it around still.," said the Englishman.
"I think a mistake a lot of guys make in match play is to push a little too much when you get behind in a match. That's when you start to give away cheap holes, and that's what you can't afford to do at this level. The experience I've gained the last six months match play wise will help me this week," he added
