Last year's European Tour Order of Merit winner is back in England this week for the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
The tournament will be the 27-year-old Englishman's first in Europe this year and he hopes the return to familiar surroundings will help him rediscover his best as he said: "Last year Wentworth was a key week for me in terms of a platform for a good year, so I am hoping it will, again, be a good tournament for me to get some form going."
"I have been in America for five months now," Rose added. "Coming back to England is a real opportunity to recharge my batteries sometimes, to catch up with friends.
"I went to the FA Cup final and had a couple of nights out with the guys.
"Just doing English things - watching a bit of football, a pint down the pub, bacon sandwich, going for a curry. Just getting back into the English lifestyle, it's good."
Rose led after the first round at the Masters in April but has otherwise not produced the performances he believes he is capable of on the US PGA Tour so far this year.
He has pleasant memories of Wentworth, however, and went close to victory in the BMW PGA Championship at the Surrey course last year before losing to Dane Anders Hansen in a dramatic play-off.
"Wentworth is one of my favourite courses," Rose added. "I've been going to the tournament there since I was a kid.
"The BMW is the flagship event on the European Tour, there is no bigger event really. It is ranked really high on my priority list and it is a golf course I really like playing too. It is well worth making the trip back from America to come and play."
