Rose, originally from West Vancouver, B.C., held conditional status in Canada last year and has played in 28 events on PGA TOUR Latinoamérica. According to Dahmen, the 28-year old is a ‘late bloomer’ who’s game has steadily improved over the last couple of years.
“He plays a lot of golf with PGA TOUR guys and Web.com Tour guys, and he beats us regularly,” says Dahmen. “For him, I think he's just fine-tuning things a little more, being sharper with his wedges, being a little better driving the ball. He has all the tools, and he's putting it all together right now.”
For Rose, the opportunity to have Dahmen on the bag was about maintaining the atmosphere under which he’s improved in recent years, including plenty of competitive games with players like Dahmen, Taylor and Harkins.
