World No. 9 Rickie Fowler coasted to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 during the first round of the Shell Houston Open, claiming his spot as the clubhouse leader as the morning wave nears a conclusion on day one.
Opening on the 10th tee today, Fowler wasted no time getting on the scoreboard. He circled birdies in five of his first seven holes, three of them coming on putts from 9-to-15 feet. He would add a crucial 7'1" splash to save par at the difficulty 18th hole, maintaining momentum while keeping his clean card intact. Fowler was very balanced in his attack today, splitting 12 fairways, landing 16 greens, and then gaining 2.67 strokes putting. Playing his 21st round at the Golf Club of Houston, this easily eclipses his previous best of 68 but falls one shy of the course record which is shared by five golfers. Mar 30 - 2:25 PM

World No. 9 Rickie Fowler fired a 7-under-par 35-30=65 on Moving Day at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to reach 5-under 211, up 49 places on the live leaderboard to T9 and good for the low round of the week thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is T11, six back of 54-hole co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman.

This is the 28-year-old's sixth API with one top 25, a T3 in 2013. At the 2013 edition, he was T2 thru 54 holes (73-67-67), two back of leader Tiger Woods, closing in 1-over 73, five back of eventual champ Woods, his 77th PGA TOUR title (of 79) and eighth at Arnie's Invite. Today's 65 for the Jupiter, Florida, resident is his low at Bay Hill in 21 tries, eclipsing the above-mentioned 67s. After opening in 74-72, he began on 2-over (T58), one inside the cut line and 12 adrift of 36-hole leader Charley Hoffman. Fowler doubled the par-4 third (tee ball in the water) but then played his final 15 holes in blemish-free 9-under, circling nine birdies and an eagle-3 at 16 (from 13'10") that completed his scoring. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 3.545 SG: Putting and 28 putts total. Three of Fowler's circles were between nine and 30 feet and also dropped a 17-foot par-saver on the par-3 seventh.

Overnight leader and World No. 14 Rickie Fowler submitted a 1-over-par 37-34=71 after the final round of The Honda Classic to finish off his eighth appearance on 12-under 268, good for a 4-shot win over runners-up Morgan Hoffmann and Gary Woodland and his fourth PGA TOUR title in 179 career events (174 pro), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank Championship 77 weeks (and 29 starts) ago.

After kicking off in 66-66-65, the Jupiter, Florida, resident began with a 4-shot lead over playing competitor Tyrrell Hatton, five clear of five players, including Woodland. He conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 2.086 strokes tee-to-green but gaining 2.929 with the flat stick. The 28-year-old went out in 2-over, outbalancing birdies at Nos. 3 and 8 (from 30 feet), with bogeys at 4 and 9, and double bogey-6 at six (tee ball in the water), trimming his margin to two. He got back in the red with circles at 12 (38'5"), 13 (23'2") and 16, before ending with a pair of bogeys. This is the Oklahoma State product's fifth top 25 and third top 10 at PGA National, eclipsing a previous-best T6 last year where he led by one at the midpoint. He improves to 1-for-5 as 54-hole leader/co-leader and bags his third top 10 of the season in four starts, joining a T6 at the WGC-HSBC and T4 in his last start three weeks ago at the Phoenix Open.
Feb 26 - 6:14 PM

World No. 14 Rickie Fowler painted a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at The Honda Classic to post 13-under 197, good for four-shot lead over Tyrrell Hatton and six clear of five players who share third.

After opening in twin 66s, the 28-year-old began round 3 in solo 3rd, one back of 36-hole co-leaders Ryan Palmer and Wesley Bryan. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.846 strokes off-the-tee and 2.977 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident's five birdies came at Nos. 3, 7, 9, 16 and 18, posting 1.727 putts per GIR and 1.637 SG: Putting. Two of his conversions dropped from between 10 and 12 feet, adding a splash from 32'6" for birdie-2 at 7. Fowler is chasing his fourth TOUR title in 179 career events (174 pro), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank 77 weeks (29 starts) ago. All three of his previous wins have been in come-from-behind fashion. He's 0-for-4 in his career as 54-hole leader, including two missteps last season (Wells Fargo, The Barclays).

Rickie Fowler torched PGA National's Champion Course in the second round of The Honda Classic, signing a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to arrive at the midpoint on 8-under 132, good for solo second on the early round two leaderboard.

Fowler is having déjà vu at PGA National, opening with twin 66s, just like last year. In the 2016 edition, he claimed the title of 36-hole leader with his 132 aggregate before posting 74-71 over the weekend to finish T6 come Sunday night. Today, the scoring start right away, splashing home a 23'11" birdie at the par-4 10th to build confidence. He would maintain a steady putter throughout the round, converting five more putts from outside six feet. Fowler continues to play well at PGA National and should remain in the thick of things over the weekend.
Feb 24 - 12:51 PM

Rickie Fowler pieced together a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of The Honda Classic, claiming a piece of fifth place after day one.

The Oklahoma State product steadied his way around PGA National's Champion Course by splitting 10 (of 14) fairways, landing 13 greens in regulation, and minimizing the damage with a 4-for-5 scrambling effort. The lone blemish came at the par-4 12th where he found himself in the pine straw behind a tree, forced to pitch onto the edge of the green and two-putt for bogey. It was all smooth sailing other than that hole. Fowler is no stranger to success at this venue. He found himself as the leader after 36 holes here last year and has now been inside the top 10 after eight of his last 18 rounds at the Honda.
Feb 23 - 6:24 PM

World No. 14 Rickie Fowler fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to wrap up his ninth appearance on 15-under 269, up 12 places on the live leaderboard to solo 5th, and ties the low lap of the day thus far with 72-hole clubhouse leader Louis Oosthuizen. UPDATE: Fowler finished in a two-way T4, two shots out of a 2-man playoff involving defending champ Hideki Matsuyama and Webb Simpson, who shot the day's low round with 64.

The two-time WMPO runner-up, including a gut-wrenching sudden-death loss last year, began the final frame on 9-under (T17), seven back of 54-hole leader Byeong Hun An. Last year, he was T2 thru 54 holes --with eventual champ Hideki Matsuyama-- ultimately losing to him in a 2-man 4-hole playoff. The 28-year-old, bogey-free over his final 44 holes, split 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted all 18 greens in regulation, posting 1.778 putts per GIR and 1.326 SG: Putting. He circled six birdies, including four in his final six holes, highlighted by his long of the day at the raucous par-3 16th (from 22'9"). This is Fowler's third start of the season and will be his second top 10, joining a T6 at the no-cut WGC-HSBC Champions.
Feb 5 - 4:50 PM

World No. 14 Rickie Fowler carded a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to reach 7-under 135, up two places to T7, three shy of 36-hole leaders Byeong Hun An and Brendan Steele.

The two-time WMPO runner-up squared a lone bogey-5 at the 10th, taking two to get out of a greenside bunker, but camouflaged it with four birdies at Nos. 3, 4, 13 and 17. He matched his fairways and greens numbers from Round 1 with seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. The 28-year-old didn't drop any scoring putts of significant length, with all four finding the bottom of the cup from inside of five feet, but did knock in two par-savers from 8'8" at the par-4 fourth and from 16'6" at the par-3 12th. En route to his playoff loss here last year, Fowler was T2 thru 36 holes on 9-under.
Feb 3 - 7:20 PM

Rickie Fowler survived some early rust and then rallied to record a 4-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Fowler opened on the back nine and found a greenside bunker at the par-4 10th. He splashed out to 9'1" and rolled it in to save par. On the next hole he rinsed his tee ball but recovered by hitting a 9-iron to 16'4" and dropping it in for another par save. That gave Fowler some early momentum which he parlayed into five birdies over the final 16 holes, offsetting a lone bogey. The Oklahoma State product lost here in a playoff last year with much of his family in attendance that week. He'd love to get some revenge by week's end.

Rickie Fowler jets into the United Arab Emirates this week to contest the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and make his first defence of a European Tour title.

Fowler's debut Euro Tour win came in the 2015 Scottish Open but he chose not to contest that event in 2016. He'll certainly hope to make a better job of defending than he's managed on the PGA TOUR. Fowler has attempted it three times but missed the cut twice (2013 Wells Fargo, 2016 Players Championship) and finished T46 in a limited field at last year's Deutsche Bank Championship. Victory in this event last year elevated the Californian to fourth in the world rankings but he returns at 14th having not managed to win since his one-shot victory over Thomas Pieters in Abu Dhabi 12 months ago. Fowler should have won the 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open but at least that near-miss last February was a reminder that he enjoys desert golf. With Rory McIlroy withdrawing with a bad back, the 28-year-old is third favorite behind compatriot Dustin Johnson and Open champ Henrik Stenson in the betting this week.
Jan 17 - 9:02 AM

World No. 12 Rickie Fowler returns for his fifth Hero World Challenge and plays the first round with defending champion Bubba Watson.

The 27-year-old has not finished worse than T6 in four prior appearances, including a personal-best solo 3rd last year on progressively better rounds of 70-68-65-64. He arrives off a T2 last week at the ISPS Handa World Cup of Golf (paired with Jimmy Walker for Team USA) and a T6 four weeks ago at the no-cut WGC-HSBC Champions (65-73-68-68). Fowler finished 31st last season in the FedExCup standings -- missing the TOUR Championship for the first time in three years. He posted eight top 10s among 18 cuts made with a season-best P2 at the WM Phoenix Open.

Team U.S.A., represented by Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker, chalked up a final round of 6-under-par 33-33=66 but it wasn't enough to claim a 25th World Cup of Golf; it ended the week T2 alongside China and France, four back of the winner Denmark.

Fowler and Walker thrived on the Melbourne sandbelt gem that is Kingston Heath Golf Club, a fast-running, traditional course with bunkering reminiscent of Pinehurst, where both finished top ten in the 2014 U.S. Open. On Sunday the birdies didn't quite flow at the rate required, but they proved they enjoyed the challenge. At the 5th Fowler hit the shot of the week, a cut wedge from dirt, around a tree, picking his way through the greenside traps to find the putting surface. Later, at 14, he used driver from the deck to reach the fringe of the par-five's green. Alas, both times par was all he could manage. Of their six birdies, Walker found the first with an approach at the par-three 6th which was one entire roll of the ball short of being an ace. In also ticking 8, 10, 12, 13 and 15 they got to within two of the Danes at the turn, but could never breach the gap.

Rickie Fowler ended his week at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68, reaching 14-under 274 on the week to fall nine shots shy of Hideki Matsuyama's remarkable tally.

Fowler was one of seven golfers to record blemish-free rounds during the finale, but he joined Hideki Matsuyama as the only golfers to record at least two BFRs this week (Matsuyama posting three). The 27-year-old kept it simple today, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways en route to 14 greens in regulation. The Oklahoma State product finished the week T10 in GIR percentage, pelting 54 greens on the week. This was Fowler's first start of the 2016-17 season and it gives him a nice bounty of 96.33 FedExCup points to immediately vault him to T23 in the standings.

Rickie Fowler kick-started his week with a 7-under-par 31-34=65 to end the first round of the WGC-HCBS Champions alone in second, one behind the leader Rikard Karlberg.

The Oklahoma State product finished T3 in this event back in 2014 and he provoked memories of that week with his fast break from the blocks Thursday. He went bogey-free through an opening lap that saw him tick red five times on his opening nine. The first came at 11, before he added two pairs at 13 and 14, then 17 and 18. At 17 he had no need of the putter after chipping in from the greenside grass for birdie-2. A third and final par-5 birdie came at No. 2 before he closed out in style on the 9th green, dropping his 12'0" putt for the seventh red. He found 11 of 14 fairways and was sensational with his approach work, landing 17 of 18 green (the exception was the chip-in at 17).

Team USA Captain's Pick Rickie Fowler outlasted Europe's Justin Rose 1UP in Sunday Singles at the 2016 Ryder Cup. Live Scoreboard: USA 11.5 Europe 9.5. Fowler completed his third appearance with a 2-1-0 record (2-4-5 overall), while Rose, who played in all five matches, went 2-3-0 in his fourth appearance (11-6-2 overall).

Rose took the early 1UP lead with birdie-3 at the 1st and the match stayed that way thru six holes, with the pair halving the 2nd and 6th with birdies. Fowler leveled the contest with a conceded birdie-3 at 7 while Rose drove left into the creek, leading to his first (of three) bogeys. The Englishman bounced back with birdie-2 at 8 to go 1UP before Fowler got back to AS with par at the 10th. The 12th was halved with bogeys, but Rose's felt worse after whiffing a glorious chance to go 1UP with a missed 4-footer for par. Fowler took his first lead of the match with birdie-4 at 16 and the duo halved the 17th and 18th with pars for the final margin.
