England's Justin Rose is aiming to be fit in time to compete at this week's BMW PGA Championship after suffering a knee injury in the build-up to the Wentworth tournament.

The world number four has been receiving treatment since jarring his knee after slipping last week.

“Unfortunately, I have had to withdraw from Wednesday's pro-am as a precaution,” Rose said.

“But I am doing everything I can to be fit to play on Thursday.”

“I have been getting treatment on the injury and I have been working hard with [European Tour medical team member] Justin Buckthorp and my medical team away from the course in order to ensure I am able to play,” he added.

Rose, a two-time runner-up at what is a flagship event for the European Tour, last played at Wentworth in 2017 when he finished 12th.
