CHARLOTTE, N.C. – All was right in Justin Rose’s world when he left San Diego with the championship hardware in his hands after winning the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in January.

He was No. 1 in the world, had just posted his eighth top-10 in his last 10 worldwide starts and was looking forward to a month off to rest, relax and rejuvenate for the rest of the year. His confidence was at its apex as he began to count down the days to the Masters.

But Rose ran into a few roadblocks en route to Magnolia Lane. His inner GPS needed retooling a week ahead of the first round of the first major championship of the year and nothing Rose did got him back on course for a course like Augusta National.

The result was his first missed cut in the Masters in 14 starts.
