Rose keen to impress at Doral

US Open champion Justin Rose is eager to enjoy a positive week at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, as he continues to be troubled by a shoulder problem.

The Englishman was forced to miss the Honda Classic last week due to his problems, but hopes for better luck on the Blue Monster at Doral, where he won the title in 2012.

However, Rose admits that he has been unable to make full preparations for the tournament, being forced to rest his right shoulder to avoid further problems.

"The tendon just gets angry if you do too much," Rose admitted.

"It's very uneventful, but I just sort of have to be very meticulous and methodical in my warm-ups and icing down and just do that for probably the next month or so and I imagine I'll be fine."

"I haven't hit as many balls as I would, but that's, I don't believe, a contributing factor to how I'm going to perform."

Rose, who is 36.00 to win the WGC-Cadillac Championship for the second time in three years, goes out in a high-profile three-ball for his first two rounds at Doral, having been drawn with Ryder Cup colleague Sergio Garcia and former Masters champion Zach Johnson.

Rose can be backed at 3.00 to win the three-ball in the first round, with Garcia 2.37 and Johnson 3.00.

Meanwhile, Tiger Woods remains a doubt for the tournament due to a back injury which forced him to withdraw during the final round of the Honda Classic last week.
