2 down, 1 to go as Rose eyes 1st British Open win

HOYLAKE, England (AP) — Two down, one to go. And for Justin Rose, it's the biggest one of all. Rose heads into the British Open as probably the hottest player in golf after winning back-to-back titles for the first time, at the Quicken Loans National at Congressional and the Scottish Open. Back at his career-high ranking of No. 3, he is playing as well as he ever has, and the experience of being a major champion — at the U.S. Open at Merion in 2013 — makes his case even more persuasive at Hoylake. But he has failed to crack the top 10 at his home major since memorably finishing tied for fourth as a 17-year-old amateur in 1998. Rose says "thousands of times I have won the Open Championship, in my mind."
