Justin Rose has revealed that his main objective before the end of the year is to push himself into the world number two ranking.
The 34-year-old, who impressed during Europe's Ryder Cup win at Gleneagles last month, can boost his chances of finishing second to current number one Rory McIlroy at this week's BMW Masters in China.
"The aim is to strengthen my world ranking as much as possible," BBC Sport quotes Rose as saying. "If I was to play well and win a few tournaments before the end of the season I could get myself to second place in the world rankings, which would be a personal best."
McIlroy will not compete in this week's tournament, which carries a prize fund of £4.35m.
