Hampshire's Justin Rose in 'good spirits' ahead of The Masters

Supporters of a golfer who grew up in Hook in Hampshire will be hoping he'll be at his best at The Masters.

The iconic golf tournament at Augusta in the US gets underway today.

For Justin Rose, it's a big occasion, as he goes into the major as the sport's world number one.

Justin says he's keen to build on some good performances in recent months:

"I never stop telling myself of how you get to number one.

"That's through hard work, pushing yourself and good results.

"My confidence is up there for sure - I feel like I've had a decent year so far.

"I've had enough good results to keep me optimistic, but I've had enough bad golf to keep my confidence in check."

Justin says you always have to be on your guard in an event that always proves to be tough:

"Things change just suddenly during the week.

"You can have it dialled in say on the Thursday, but by the weekend it may have all changed."
