Justin Rose’s major plan is working

CROMWELL, Conn. — Now that Justin Rose has fulfilled some of the enormous potential that was placed on his scrawny teenage shoulders 15 years ago, he can continue with a plan that is only a few years and suddenly five PGA Tour victories in the making.

Rose always has been about plotting a course and sticking to it. It’s helped him overcome the lows (21 straight missed cuts to begin his professional career), and brought proper perspective in dealing with the highs. Those have come, too, none bigger than Sunday, when he won the 113th US Open for his first major championship.
