The 2023 Ryder Cup is just weeks away, and with tensions rising within both teams as they work out their potential plan of action, golfer Justin Rose is prepared to do whatever it takes. Justin Rose is playing for team Europe for the sixth time during the Ryder Cup and has a lot of experience.
His experience also means Rose will play an important role in the European team’s dynamics, especially when he has the second-highest starts, only behind Rory McIlroy’s seven. He has reflected on the maturity of his role and how it has changed over the years as he has gained more and more experience.
“I come in with a lot of experience. But it’s not a role I want to impose on the younger guys. It has to be natural and organic. I don’t want to put my opinion on the others if that is the case.” not how they see things,” he said, via Golf Digest.
Although he doesn’t want to push his experience on the younger golfers, he is happy to help if they ever come asking for advice. He will be key to keeping the team together and getting them through some tough times on the course.
Justin Rose’s Ryder Cup experience will come in handy when it comes to new members of the European team
Justin Rose said he wished he had asked more questions when he was a new member of the Ryder Cup team. He is already helping to form close ties with the Ryder Cup team. He recently played with Ryder Cup rookie Nicolai Hojgaard on the Wentworth course for the BMW PGA Championship to help him better understand four-ball tactics.
“I was just chatting with Nicolai during the course. It wasn’t anything specific, just a general strategy in and around four balls. I hope he takes things in without really realizing it. I could tell he really understood what I was saying.”
The real connection for the team started last Monday, when the team visited Rome to check out the course they will be playing on. Needless to say, the European team is ready to go as the Ryder Cup will be held at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club between September 30 and October 2.
