Report and highlights from the third round of the Valspar Championship.
Rose fired a five-under 66 on Saturday on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook to get to eight under and move into a share of second alongside Tiger Woods and Brandt Snedeker.
The Englishman heads into the final round just a shot off leader Corey Conners, with the world No 5 aiming to follow on from victories in China, Turkey and Indonesia as he chases a fourth worldwide win in 10 starts.
"I need to go into tomorrow with confidence," Rose said. "In golf it feels like a long time ago I last won. Obviously it's not.
"The key to winning [on Sunday] is the guy that goes out there and respects this golf course, takes his chances when they come and commits to the shot. That's basically how I'm going to go about it."
Rose will tee off in the final group on Sunday alongside PGA Tour rookie Conners, after the Canadian posted a three-under 68 to maintain his hopes of a wire-to-wire victory.
"I feel like I did that really well, Conners said. "I was really patient out there, hit a lot of good tee balls and picked my shots to be aggressive at some pins.
"It's fun seeing [Tiger Woods] out there today and I'm sure he'll be battling hard tomorrow, but hopefully I can play my game and have a good day."
Watch the final round of the Valspar Championship live on Sunday from 5pm on Sky Sports Golf and 6.30pm on Sky Sports Main Event.
