EAST LAKE HISTORY: This is Rose’s third PGA TOUR start at East Lake. He is still searching for his first career top 10 at the famed track. His best finish was a tie for 11th in 2007.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Rose:
I left Florida last March thinking he was the best player on TOUR. Justin seemed primed for a career win following his victory at the Cadillac Championship, but it hasn't materialized. I think of Justin as one of the more mentally tough players on TOUR.
