Justin Rose sidelined for two tournaments

Justin Rose is set to miss at least two upcoming tournaments due to a shoulder injury which has stopped him from playing.

The PGA Tour pro has mild tendinitis which developed towards the end of last year, although the 33-year-old still managed to perform. The prognosis is good however, and the South African-born Englishman is expected to be playing again in February.

While Rose works through the recovery process, he will not be more than a spectator for the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, nor will he be cleared to compete in the Farmers Insurance Open.
