The World No. 5 shares the swing se­crets that have turned him into one of the world’s sweet­est ball-strik­ers.

Golf World (UK) - - CONTENTS -

The world num­ber five is one of the game’s finest ball strik­ers. So, when he shows you how to flush ev­ery shot, you should take note.

Known as one of the Tour’s ‘flush­ers’ Justin Rose has been an elite ball-striker for more than a decade. Work­ing with coaches Sean Fo­ley and Justin Buck­thorp to im­prove his swing tech­nique and phys­i­cal con­di­tion­ing, he has been able to keep up with the new gen­er­a­tion of power hit­ters that play the game in a dif­fer­ent way to Rose, who came up through the ranks in the 1990s – be­fore the days of high-launch, low-spin drivers.

Rose hasn’t been out­side the top 15 on the PGA Tour in ‘strokes gained – tee-to-green’ the last eight sea­sons and he’s picked up over 1.25 shots per round on the field in his long game ev­ery year since 2012. He’s also in­creased his driv­ing dis­tance by 10 yards over that same time.

Over the next eight pages, Rose and Fo­ley will show you how to im­prove your ball-strik­ing so you can hit the ball longer, straighter and more con­sis­tently.
