"Tiger's never driven the ball so well," Rose said Wednesday at the French Open. "He's top five or six in greens in regulation. His ball striking stats, apart from maybe 2000, have never looked so good."
Rose, also a winner this season at Doral, and Woods have been able to compare notes on the Foley fundamentals.
"(It's) been fun for me to be part of the stable, if you like," Rose said. "I've definitely had a chance to get to know Tiger a little bit more and play practice rounds, and he asks me my opinion on a few things and I get to ask him his thoughts on the game, so it's been very good learning for everybody."
As for the debate if Woods is "back," or when that might happen, Rose seems to believe the question has been answered.
"It's interesting to see how much criticism (Woods and Foley) both get," Rose said. "People keep asking if Tiger is going to make a comeback. I think he's won four of his last ten tournaments, so that's not too bad."
Tiger Woods will play the first two rounds of the Arnold Palmer Invitational with Ernie Els and Justin Rose. Read More
