Justin Rose is hoping that prioritising the majors above all else will pay off at this week's Masters.
This strategy appeared to work for the Englishman in 2015, where he notched up three top six finishes in the majors.
"I think you need to get to the point in your career where you can maybe sacrifice one or two other things to solely focus on the majors," the 2013 US Open winner told the official European Tour website.
"I would say I still am not at that point where it's just the major championships that have my complete attention, but certainly, I build my year around them.
"Every decision I make year round is to stay fresh or to do well in the major championships. I think those are really what I'm chasing down now going forward."
Rose put himself in a position to challenge at the 2015 event, starting the day four shots behind eventual winner Jordan Spieth. But the indomitable Texan was simply too good at Augusta, cruising to a comfortable win.
"Essentially, I was beaten by an all-time great performance," recollected Rose.
"So I take a lot of confidence from that; that any other year or many other years, that level of performance is good enough to win.
"If you get beaten by a better guy on the week, you tip your cap. But I know that what I was able to do last year tells me I've got what it takes to win the tournament going forward."
Scotland’s Connor Syme and Englishman Matthew Jordan were also part of the successful quintet.
The English Open has been revived as part of the new schedule.
Close House Golf Club, near Newcastle, will host the British Masters on July 22.
The event was last staged in 2002.
The tournament at Close House, scheduled to start on July 30, is set to be the first European Tour event since the coronavirus crisis halted action.
The world number one believes it would be the ‘right call’ to push the event back to 2021.
The exhibition match, against Phil Mickelson and Tom Brady, raised 20 million dollars.
The Dutchman finished third and second in the first two weeks of the home-based competition.
NFL stars Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will also be involved.
