Justin Rose will miss out on the remainder of the 2015/16 season due to a back injury. The talented player will need time to fully recover before he is fit enough to return to the green.
Justin Rose has decided to take some time out in order to rest his back. In May this year the thirty six year old complained of discomfort in his back whilst competing in the Players Championship.
Currently the World Number 11, Rose, attributed the discomfort he felt in his back to a disk herniation. Since the beginning of the PGA tour season, last October, Rose has competed in twenty one different tournaments. He was also part of team Europe, who disappointingly, lost the Ryder Cup to the USA last week.
Speaking to the media Rose said:
“I have decided to take the next eight weeks off for rest and recovery. At this point in my career, it’s important to invest in my body. This time off is crucial for me to return to peak performance.”
His time off will disappoint fans especially after they saw him win the Olympic Gold for Great Britain this summer in. His success is largely down to his talent, but his chances for Gold in Rio were increased after several players dropped out of the competition due to the Zika Virus scare. Others also refused to take part in the Games because they were too busy on tour.
His Gold medal is the only victory that he has to his name at the end of his season. This time off is wise, and only increases his chances of a return next season, back on top form.
Rose will miss out on the British Masters, which is due to take place next week. He will also forfeit the opportunity to be a part of the finale of the season. The European Tour’s Race to Dubai set for November.
