Can Justin Rose win the Masters?

WE take a look at one of the most open Masters fields in recent memory and find out why the favourites can or can't win the Green Jacket.

WE take a look at one of the most open Masters fields in recent memory and find out why the favourites can or can't win the Green Jacket.

We run the rule over the 2013 US Open champion, Justin Rose. Can the Englishman make it Major number two with a win at Augusta this year?

The more relevant question for Rose might be why he hasn't won at Augusta already. Three times the 2013 US Open champ has held the first round lead, yet his best finish in the event is T5.

That came in 2007 when he stood on the 17th tee on Sunday with a genuine chance to win before hitting a poor drive and wracking up a costly double bogey.

Only once since has he featured in the top 10 - a T8 in 2012 - but he has never missed a cut in nine tries at Augusta and comes in this year flying under the radar.

He has played very little golf in 2015 and of the four events he has teed up in he has missed three cuts.

However, his good play at the Houston Open suggests his game is turning around and at this level one good week is sometimes all that's required to kickstart a great run.
