Rose dreams of Hall of Fame

Justin Rose says his dream of being inducted into golf's Hall of Fame has never left him, but believes he will need another major to get there.

The 37-year-old has accumulated more than £2million in the past fortnight with his back-to-back wins in China and at the Turkish Airlines Open on Sunday, but it is his wider body of work that stands him out as one of the finest golfers of his era.

20 titles to his name, including at least one on all six continents, the world No.6 has made a strong case for a hall of fame induction.

However, only eight English golfers hold the distinction – John Henry Taylor, John Ball, Harold Hilton, Henry Cotton, Jim Barnes, Tony Jacklin, Peter Alliss and Sir Nick Faldo –Rose wants to join their ranks once he becomes eligible at 50.

“I've always said I'd like to be a Hall of Fame player, and I guess who makes that determination, I don't know, but that's kind of what I'm working towards,” Rose said.

“So, is that two major championships and 20 wins? I don't know what it is. Olympic Gold will probably be kind of a nice bargaining chip when it comes to that.

“But I've also heard Phil Mickelson say that the time to think about all that stuff is when you're done and you can really look back and enjoy all your victories. There's plenty more to achieve.”
