Justin Rose is hoping to kick start his season with a win in Ohio this week and he believes a good performance will spur him on to bigger and better things.
The Englishman has a history of stringing good finishes together as he ended a three-year winless streak in Ohio last year, which he followed with a win at the AT&T National a month later.
This year has been difficult for Rose, despite a start which saw six top-20 finishes in the first eight weeks, missing two recent cuts, with the latest failure coming at the BMW PGA event at Wentworth.
"My game is making some progress and I've been working hard this week with the driver," said the 30-year-old.
"Muirfield Village is a course where you need to drive the ball well and I like to think that will play to my advantage."
