It took inspiration from an unlikely source for Justin Rose to ensure he marched to his first Zurich Classic title.
The 34-year old Englishman used NBA star Steph Curry as his inspiration to remain focussed and ensure he pushed ahead of the chasing pack at a heavily rain delayed tournament at TPC Louisiana.

“Maybe yesterday or the day before I started off hot, went cold and then Fulch said – come on remember Steph Curry.
“He went cold but he kept wanting the ball and he kept shooting threes and believing,” said Rose, explaining how the weather had prevented a more fluid game.
“We used that analogy and that’s what great athletes you look up to do in the big moments – they want the ball and they make big shots and putts.”
The Masters runner-up clearly feels everything is coming together after struggling to find any real form in the early portion of the season so far.
With this win, Rose has now won a PGA Tour event in his previous six seasons.
“On my way to the course this morning I was thinking, 2010, 2011, 12, 13, 14, and trying to work it out,” he told Sky Sports. “Six years in a row is not easy to do and I’m incredibly grateful and proud of that stat.”
So we now delve into the World Number Nine’s TaylorMade bag and take a look at the gear that is making him a real contender at every event he now appears in.
