Justin Rose believes Annika Sorenstam will miss the cut when she makes her eagerly-awaited USPGA Tour debut this week.
The LPGA phenomenon will play in the Bank of Colonial tournament in Texas starting on Thursday.
And while Rose describes her entry into the men's game as "cool" and "exciting", he reckons she'll be going home early.
He told Sky Sports: "I think she'll narrowly miss the cut, and I think that will be a good performance. I don't think the course will suit her but I
do think she'll handle the pressure okay because she's a great champion."
Vijay Singh hit the headlines recently with his strong objections to Sorenstam's Colonial invite, but young Brit Rose is much more laid-back about the
"She's dominated the women's game like nobody else and it's going to be really interesting to see how she does this week. Variety is the spice of life
and I think it's pretty exciting and cool."
