CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — U.S. Open champion Justin Rose has no plans to take any time off after winning his first major championship.

Nathan Grube, the tournament director at the Travelers Championship, said Rose’s wife, Kate, called shortly after her husband won his first major title to confirm they would be in Connecticut for this week’s tournament.

Rose, who rose from fifth to third in the current world rankings with his win at Merion, is in a field that includes just five other top-20 players: Lee Westwood (12), Keegan Bradley (14), Jason Dufner (17), Ian Poulter (18), and Bubba Watson (19).
