Rickie Fowler punctuated a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National with a hole-in-one at the par-3 ninth hole.
He three-jacked the par-5 eighth hole for bogey, and then laced a 7-iron from 184 yards at the last for the ace. (You can view the shot at the link below.) Overall, Fowler hit 13 greens in regulation and added four birdies, the longest from 12'10" at the par-4 13th. He's four swings adrift of the clubhouse lead. Incidentally, today's 1 is his second in 141 PGA TOUR starts as a pro. The first occurred in the final round of the 2009 Open at Grayhawk Golf Club. He holed his tee ball on the par-3 fifth from 211 yards that day and would eventually lose in a playoff to Troy Matteson. That's the same tournament in which Jamie Lovemark's approach on the first hole in the playoff landed in the water and hopped onto dry land. Lovemark went on to save par on the hole before also getting clipped by Matteson on the next hole. Jul 30 - 3:23 PM

With birdies on three of his last four holes, Rickie Fowler eked out a one-stroke victory at the Scottish Open.

Boy, does he loves himself the big stage. In a field loaded with some of the best golfers in the game and headed to next week's Open Championship at St. Andrews, Fowler reminded everyone that he's not underrated yet again. He stiffed his second at the par-4 18th for a no-pressure look at birdie. When it fell, and Raphaël Jacquelin didn't hole out for eagle at the last, it secured the American's first victory in a European Tour event. Fowler carded a 4-under-par 35-33=68 at Gullane Golf Club in Eat Lothian today. He posted 12-under 268, one shot better than Jacquelin and Matt Kuchar. With this fresh triumph on a links track, Fowler demands respect in all formats on The Old Course. He tied for 14th in his first appearance at St. Andrews in 2010 and has three top 15s in five appearances in the season's third major.

Rickie Fowler crafted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 on day three of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and is now favorite with the UK bookies to take victory.

At 10-under 200, the American is just two shots behind leader Daniel Brooks and will have a golden chance to give himself the ideal confidence boost for next week's Open Championship at St. Andrews. Five back and T13 after two rounds, Fowler struggled to make the progress he was looking for after playing the first 13 holes in 1-under but a birdie at 14 and an eagle-3 at 16 did the trick and lifted him to T3. The 26-year-old has split just 50% of fairways so far this week but is getting it done via short game. Fowler is 15-for-18 in scrambling after getting up and down six times out of seven today.

Rickie Fowler birdied three of the last four holes in a 4-under-par 34-32=66 on day one of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

After unsettling missed cuts at Memorial and the U.S. Open, this is a welcome opening lap for the American, who will be bidding to win a first major title in next week's Open at St Andrews. Fowler scrambled well (5-for-5) to keep a bogey off his card and a birdie-2 at the 8th was the only time he deviated from par over the first 14 holes. He then made a move at the finish with birdies at 15, 16 and 18 and signed for his card just three shots behind leader Thorbjorn Olesen. Fowler, who was T8 in this event last year, hit only 8 (of 14) fairways so will want to tidy up his driving.
Jul 9 - 8:47 AM

Rickie Fowler has Ryder Cup rivals Ian Poulter and Jamie Donaldson for company in the first two rounds of this week's Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

Fowler was on the losing side at Gleneagles on his last visit to Scotland so will be hoping for better fortunes over the next two weeks at Gullane and St Andrews. The American showed up strongly in this tournament last year when taking a share of eighth spot at Castle Stuart before crossing the border to finish T2 in the Open Championship at Hoylake. Since his brilliant win at THE PLAYERS, the Californian has gone somewhat quiet with a T30 at the Irish Open and missed cuts at both Memorial and the U.S. Open. Perhaps some Scottish air in his nostrils will get him back on track.

Rickie Fowler stumbled to an 11-over-par 43-38=81 in his opening round of the 115th U.S. Open, but he didn't sign his card without almost making history at the par-4 12th hole.

Fowler's experience showcased most of one side of the spectrum of the potential impact of Chambers Bay. He found 12 of the 14 expansive fairways but managed only eight greens in regulation. The only par breaker yielded came at the drivable 12th where his tee ball motored through the center of the green, slowed on a backstop, and then reversed its track directly back toward the hole. Three feet from the cup, it looked like it was going in, but it peeled off at the last moment for a tap-in eagle. (You can view the shot for yourself at the link below.) Elsewhere, he squared six bogeys, two doubles and a triple. Needless to say, his hope to extend his streak of top 20s in majors to seven is seriously in doubt, but he gets 18 more holes to find the magic. It's just that he sits 155th in the field of 156.

Rickie Fowler puts on his game face in preparation of this week's U.S. Open.

Fowler has evolved into a big-game hunter over the past few seasons, and this is certainly one of the biggest stages. In major championships, the Oklahoma State product has rattled off top 20s in seven of his last eight. Fowler's game sets up great for links-style courses, as well, evidenced by a trio of top 15s to his name at the Open Championship.

Rickie Fowler signed for a 5-over-par 35-41=76 following his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and sits at 5-over 218 through 54 holes.

Oh, what a difference two holes make. Fowler started the day just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and opened today's stroll around Royal County Down with a bogey-6 at the first hole. He played his next 15 holes impeccably with a a birdie-2 at No. 7 and a chip-in for eagle at the par-4 16th. Now 2-under and lurking, the American lost his tee ball at the par-4 17th and clunked around until he penciled in an 8. Alas, he post the same number on the par-5 18th and compound matters. Links golf offers few opportunities to let off the gas. Today's cold and windy conditions didn't help. Fowler paid the price. Twice.

Rickie Fowler outscored playing partners Rory McIlroy and Martin Kaymer by nine and eight shots respectively in an opening even-par 36-35=71 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Fowler's ability to keep calm and scramble his way out of trouble served him well in tough conditions at Royal County Down on Thursday. He started out with birdies at 10 and 11 and found two more par breakers at 4 and 8 although four bogeys on his card meant he had to settle for a 71. However, that was just two shots off the clubhouse lead and in stark contrast to McIlroy (80) and Kaymer (79), who failed to card a single birdie between them. The key for Fowler was his short game as he went 7-for-11 in scrambling after hitting only seven greens in regulation.

Rickie Fowler will have plenty of happy memories to draw on when he heads to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Royal County Down.

This may be his tournament debut but Fowler was a star of the United States team that won the 2007 Walker Cup on the fabled Irish links. The American won three of his four matches and on the final day teamed up with Billy Horschel to take down Rory McIlroy and Jonathan Caldwell 2&1. Fowler might have a decent chance of beating tournament host McIlroy again. The Californian scored a brilliant win at THE PLAYERS earlier this month and is a proven performer on links courses with a T2 and a T5 to his name in the last four Open Championships.
May 26 - 7:05 AM

With a birdie on the first hole in sudden death, Rickie Fowler emerged with victory at THE PLAYERS for his second PGA TOUR title and first since the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship.

Fowler closed out the tournament going 6-under over his last six holes to sign for a 5-under 36-31=67 and post 12-under 279. He was later matched by Sergio Garcia and then Kevin Kisner to force a first-ever, three-hole aggregate playoff at THE PLAYERS. Fowler and Kisner matched birdie-2s on the 17th to finish the aggregate 1-under, eliminating Garcia (at even par). Fowler would then dispatch Kisner on the first hole of sudden death, rolling in a five-footer for birdie and the title. On his final round, Fowler was 1-over through his first 12 holes with not much going his way, but his fortunes changed with birdies on 13 and 15. In the fairway on the par-5 16th, he nearly rinsed his approach from 239 yards out, landing just a few paces from the water, but it miraculously careened to just 2'5" for an eagle-3. Fowler would complete the dramatic finish with birdie on 17 from 6'10" and again from 16'11" on the last.
May 10 - 6:08 PM

Rickie Fowler enjoyed his opening 69 at THE PLAYERS so much that he went out and tossed up another in today's second round.

Fowler submitted respective nines of 34 and 35 today with two birdies on both sides. All 18 of his conversions came from eight-and-a-feet and in. His only blemish occurred at the par-5 16th where he rinsed his second and eventually squared a bogey, but at 6-under 138, the 26-year-old is only two strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 8 - 6:26 PM

Rickie Fowler shot 3-under-par 32-37=69 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

This had the makings of something special today, but he coughed away the opportunity coming home. Fowler sat bogey-free 6-under through 11 holes with six birdies, the longest falling from just outside 31 feet at the iconic, par-3 17th. After blitzing the track, he then two-putted the par-3 third for double bogey and bogeyed the par-5 ninth where he rinsed his tee ball. For the day, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, but one must avoid the crooked numbers at TPC Sawgrass to enjoy success. It's still very early in the tournament and he's only two strokes off the clubhouse lead, so the sky hasn't fallen yet.
May 7 - 1:29 PM

Rickie Fowler polished off a perfect record in pool play at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship with a 5-and-4 dusting of Graeme McDowell in today's third round.

Fowler was the first to advance to the round of 16 over 24 hours ago, but he sent a message today with eight birdies in just 15 holes, including a walk-off conversion from 15 feet at the par-4 14th. Both went bogey-free, but G-Mac found only three birdies. The Ulsterman went 0-3 for the week.
May 1 - 7:30 PM

Thanks to defeating Shane Lowry 1-up in today’s second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Rickie Fowler has mathematically advanced to the round of 16.

Fowler led only twice. He took the par-3 second hole with a par and the par-5 18th with birdie. Lowry owned the lead from Nos. 4-13, even reaching 2-up through 12, but couldn’t hang on. Fowler is now 2-0 and cannot lose his group. Nevertheless, he’ll show up on Friday for a third-round match with Graeme McDowell. Lowry (1-1) will wrap up his time at TPC Harding Park with a walk with Harris English.
