Rose on "mission" for Rome

Justin Rose has played in five Ryder Cups

Justin Rose has declared it a "mission" to make the Ryder Cup in Rome in two years after revealing his dismay at missing out on last month's showdown at Whistling Straits.

Rose was overlooked by European skipper Padraig Harrington for a wildcard for the clash which ended in a thumping United States win, and the Englishman has vowed to be there in Italy in 2023 when the host side areĀ 2.87 shots to reclaim the trophy.

Overlooked for Captain's pick

The former US Open champion and Olympic gold medallist admitted being "gutted" by Harrington's snub, with the European captain instead plumping for Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter and Shane Lowry to complete his 12-man team.

Rose figured he had done enough to warrant a pick with his spectacular eagle finish at the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth securing a top-six finish, his fourth top-ten in his last ten tournaments, two of which were majors.

Certainly, many European golf fans were surprised that Rose, a five-time veteran of the competition who had played in three winning teams, missed out on the plane to Wisconsin where the Americans took back the trophy with a dominant 19-9 win.

Ready to work for Rome

But Rose insists there are no hard feelings towards Harrington and simply insists that not competing last month has renewed his appetite to ensure he's there in Rome in 2023.

"My reaction to all this has convinced me that I still have the hunger," he told Yahoo Sports.

"The new generation is refreshing and energising, but at 43 years of age I'll definitely still have plenty to offer in 2023. It will be a mission of mine to make Rome. It already is. Yeah, make it by right."
