Justin Rose admits he wants to go “one further” at this year’s BMW PGA Championship having twice finished second at Wentworth.

Rose has visited the prestigious BMW PGA Championship 10 times in his career, coming second in 2012 and in 2007 when he lost a playoff at the first hole to Denmark’s Anders Hansen.

The 2014 edition gets under way on May 22 and Englishman Rose admits he would love to win his home tournament at Wentworth Club.

“First and foremost I’m looking forward to being back,” Rose told ESPN.

“It’s one of my favourite events – I call it a bucket list event.
Wentworth is right up there with the events I want to win at some point.

“I’ve been close here in the past, had a couple of second place finishes. To go one further is something I’d definitely love to happen.”

The 33-year-old has hit form in May. He finished fifth at the Wells Fargo Championship before a fourth-place finish at the Players Championship, carding a 10-under par total on each occasion.

“I’m trending in the right direction. It’s all about picking up a trophy now,” he said.

U.S. Open champion Rose is among the favourites to win the BMW PGA Championship and is valued at 13.00.

He shares the 13.00 price with fellow British players Luke Donald, Lee Westwood and Rory McIlroy.
