World number six Justin Rose hopes his good form can continue and lead to success at the PGA Championship.

The Englishman has hit form ahead of the year's final major with three straight top-10s heading into the event at Whistling Straits.

Rose, the 2013 U.S. Open champion, said he saw no reason as to why he would not challenge in Wisconsin.

"I feel like I'm still hoping to keep the peak going. I would say this would be a great week for it all to line up. I've been trending in the right direction," he said.

"It would be nice to take that extra step and get over the finish line first, but then the weeks off become important. How you manage your rest time, your recovery, so you don't burn yourself out.

"But there's no reason why I don't feel like it's not sustainable the way I'm playing through the next month or two.

"I haven't had anything in my game that I don't feel like is not what I've been practicing, and not what shows up for me every day on the range. I've just been taking it to the course better.

"My mindset has been very good, I've been very patient on the golf course, thinking about it, mentally very sharp. If I can stay physically rested, mentally sharp, the rest can take care of itself."

Rose made a slow start to the year before his only win of the year so far - at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April.

A string of good results have followed, including top-10 finishes at the Masters and The Open.

"It's been a good summer. It's been nice to perform well in the major championships," Rose said.

"I certainly didn't panic earlier in the year when I wasn't playing well. I tried to tell myself that my year was going to be built around April through to September, and that's when a lot of the big tournaments rolled around.

"That's when I wanted to be fresh and at my best. It's going according to plan."
