Justin Rose the English man showed great prowess on the USPGA championship by shooting his lowest round of the week on Saturday, however this necessarily did not make him a man without mistakes and later regrets.
Justin Rose climbed quickly but steadily to the top 25 where in a crisp 67, he birdied four of his first seven holes. He posed a threat to his own winning after he bogeyed at the 15th and 16th.Rose closed in 37 places to reach 25 owing to his choice of shots; he went for the halfway cut by a shot only after rounds of 70 and 72. Rory Mcllroy showed great control and focus when he was just four strokes away from Rose, when the latter added another birdie at the 13th. Mcllroy had still not started his third round, undoubtedly making him this season’s favorite.
Though Rose slipped back a few standings on the leader board after dropping a couple of late shots, however, it was overall a good round of 67. “Those two shots that I dropped cost me hard even though I managed to get one back with a birdie at 18th. I knew I had to give it my all, go out all blazing guns and stuff, but looking back at the end, I know that I only did half of what I was supposed to do,” said Rose.
The competition got fierce between Scottish Marc Warren and English Danny Willet. While Warren managed to secure a place within the top 20 shooting a 66; Willet tactfully birdied the 10th and at 31 shots was at the turn. Willet too finished with a 66 that closed the distance between him and the lead by just three shots leaving him six under. “I cannot afford mistakes like this again,” Justin told reporters.
