Justin Rose says he is back in ‘work mode’ after celebrating his US Open victory and is now focused on the Open Championship at Muirfield.

Rose has taken a break from the game following his victory at Merion last month and has been back in England relaxing and spending time with his young family.

The 32-year-old says it has been the perfect preparation for the Open as his children have helped him to keep his feet on the ground, but now it is time to get back to work.

Rose will get back on the course and practice ground this week as he looks to win back-to-back majors, and admits he is fully focused on his next goal.

“I had a great two weeks at home when I was just spending time with the family and kids – it’s been special to get back to England,” he said.

“I feel like I am past the celebrating stage and I feel like I’m back in the work mode.

“I’m hungry to get back out practising and get back ready for the Open Championship.

“I feel it’s taken me two or three weeks to get everything out of my system to be at the point where I’m ready now to move onto the next goal.”

Rose is in a confident mood going into the Championship and is in no doubt that the experience of winning the US Open will help him, if he finds himself in contention once again.

“Having won the US Open, if I find myself coming down the stretch on Sunday that’s when I think it will pay off,” he added.

“Thursday morning there is a lot of work ahead of me and it probably doesn’t mean much. But if I get that sniff, if I get that chance hopefully that’s when I’ll be able to draw upon those positive experiences.

“I know if I produce my best I’m going to be hard to beat.”
