Justin Rose takes commanding lead at Colonial

Justin Rose is on the verge of PGA Tour victory number nine as he holds the 54-hole lead at the Fort Worth Invitational at Colonial Country Club.

Rose is at 14-under-patr for the week after carding scores of 66, 64 and 66.

He is four-shots ahead of Emiliano Grillo and Brooks Koepka and six shots ahead of Jon Rahm, Louis Oosthuizen, J. T. Poston, Corey Conners and Ryan Armour.

Rose has won the previous two times he has started the final round with a four shot lead.

“It’s a big lead, but it isn’t big enough,” Rose said.

“You have to continue making birdies and keep going forward.”

Grillo shared that sentiment, firing a warning to the 37-year-old Briton.

“He has to go out and shoot under par,” Grillo said.

“He’s got 50 guys behind him trying to reach him.”
