US Open champion Justin Rose has already set his sights on a second major title, and says he'll be ready to challenge for The Open Championship at Muirfield later this month.

The world number three became the first Englishman to win a major for 17 years - since Nick Faldo's Masters triumph in 1996 - and spoke proudly of his recent victory at Merion, adding that it will give him impetus to push on.

After returning to England for the first time since his US Open win earlier this week, Rose is ready to step up his preparations for The Open Championship, which is still a little over two weeks away.

"I will be (ready for the Open)," Rose is quoted by Sky Sports. "I've got some preparation ahead of me the next two weeks to try and really get into some links golf and get my game ready for that but, yeah, definitely looking forward to the Open Championship.

"It's good to be back (in the UK), really good to be back. It's great to be seeing some family while I'm here and obviously the sun was shining on our return which is always a nice welcome."

Rose is England's first US Open winner in more than four decades, since Tony Jacklin's victory at Hazeltine National Golf Club in 1970, and it's not lost on the 32-year-old what an achievement it is to have finally realised one of his lifelong ambitions.

"Obviously, to win a major is a dream come true, to win the US Open is an honour," he added. "You know, I've been playing a lot of golf in the States of late.

"To break through in a major championship is something my game has been working towards for a long time."
