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.”
