World number one Justin Rose has set himself the goal of winning four majors before his career ends.

The 38-year-old Englishman, whose lonely big win came at the 2013 US Open, is at Augusta National for this week's Masters.

He was second in 2015 and 2017 and has had five top 10 finish places at the opening month of the year.

"I would take four. That would be great, I would just like to say the word & # 39; multiple & # 39;", he said.

"As long as it is just one of each," he added, referring to the Open and US PGA Championship.

"I have seen that some men are going through a career and are unable to get that elusive first major – and it is undoubtedly a gap in a career – but I would like the word & # 39; multiple & "

Rose returned to number one in the world this week, despite the fact that he wasn't playing, but the last player to win the Masters as the best rated player in the world was Tiger Woods in 2002.

"I won number one in the world in San Diego in January, which was important to me," Rose continued, winning his 24th professional title at the Farmers Insurance Open. "But clearly winning a major as world number one would be even more fantastic.

" I believe I can do it. But until you have won a large or an Olympic gold medal, those achievements sometimes seem insurmountable.

"Do I have to take another form, I will always believe that those results are still possible."

Fellow Englishman Tommy Fleetwood feels "everything is in good shape" as he prepares for his third appearance at the Masters.

The 28-year-old missed the cut in his debut in 2017 but jointly finished 17th in 2018.

"Year there was so much to assume," he said. "On year two you feel more at ease and while I'm not on the stage of Fred Couples, I get a better understanding and feeling of the tournament and the course.

" There are so many options, in getting particularly into greens, chipping around the greens and putting. I don't think you can ever learn enough. "

Last year, Fleetwood shot a six-under-66 in round three, but says it's about" merging three consistent rounds and the fourth to be OK ".

He added: "A bad round will not succeed. But in the last couple of years I have given myself a lot to that and it is just a matter of making it happen, because the more you think about it, the more you try and the harder it gets. "
