World No. 10 Rickie Fowler got off to a quick start, stalled out mid-round, and eventually handed in a 4-under-par 33-34=67 after the final round of the BMW Championship, finishing T2 on 18-under 266, five shy of wire-to-wire winner and playing competitor Marc Leishman, and remained at 6th in the FedExCup standings.
This is Fowler's first runner-up finish in 27 Playoffs events and has opened the postseason with progressively better results of T20-T13-T2. It's his fourth overall top-5 finish in the Playoffs, first since T4 here in 2015, and has one win, the 2015 Deutsche Bank. After kicking off in 65-64-70, the 28-year-old began T2, five back. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.905 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 13 (3-putt from 37'0"), offset by five circles at 1, 2 and 14-16, two from between 12 and 23 feet. He recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.211 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. It's Fowler's 10th top 10 of the season in 20 starts and a TOUR-leading eighth straight top 25. Sep 17 - 7:14 PM

World No. 10 Rickie Fowler patched together a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in the third round of the BMW Championship to reach the three-quarter mark on 14-under 199, five adrift of 54-hole leader Marc Leishman, who he'll be paired with in the final round.

After opening in 65-64, the 28-year-old began in a two-way T2, three back of Leishman . Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he eagled the drivable par-4 first, using the flat stick from just off the green 24'5" away, but played his final 17 holes in 1-over, canceling a lone birdie-4 at 14 (from 3'9") with bogey-5s at 12 and 16. The California native hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.851 strokes off-the-tee and 1.268 around-the-green, but losing 0.874 approaching-the-green. He posted a pedestrian 1.833 putts per GIR and -1.824 SG: Putting, needing 29 total putts. Fowler, projecting at 6th in the FedExCup standings, has won three of his four career TOUR titles in come-from-behind fashion, the largest of which was a three-shot deficit two times.

For a second straight day, Rickie Fowler feasted on the back nine at Conway Farms Golf Club, resulting in a 7-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the BMW Championship, joining Jason Day with the early clubhouse lead on 13-under 129. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is T2, three back of leader Marc Leishman, whose 64 matched Fowler for low round of the day.

The Oklahoma State product traded three birdies with a bogey on the outward nine today. He is now 2-under on the week on the front nine but the back nine has been kind to Fowler (11-under). Yesterday it was a career-high six straight birdies and today it was four birdies and an eagle. The eagle came at the par-4 15th where he drove the green (277-yard tee shot) and splashed home a 9'6" putt. It's been an all-around attack for Fowler this week who sat inside the top 5 in three sub-categories of strokes gained at the time he signed his card (off-the-tee, around-the-green, and putting). Fowler may not share the lead by day's end but if he does it will be his seventh career lead/co-lead after 36 holes. He is 0-for-6 in converting those into wins, playing better as the hunter rather than the hunted.

Rickie Fowler saved the best for last en route to a 6-under-par 35-30=65 during round one of the BMW Championship, setting a new personal record on his way to a spot inside the top 10 on the early leaderboard.

Fowler opened his day with a 13'3" birdie splash at the first before giving it right back at the par-3 second hole. He knocked in a pair of par-savers from the 9-to-14 foot range but couldn't get much else to fall before reaching the back nine. From there, he rattled off seven straight birdies to finish his round. The sixth was most notable as he chipped in from 64 feet to keep the streak alive. His previous best birdie-or-better streak was five (2 times). He also set up a seventh look at the closing par-5 18th from 12'9" but couldn't convert. Fowler started the week ranked 6th in the FedExCup race, meaning he'll be fighting hard to jump at least one spot to get inside the coveted top-5 positioning where he'll control his own destiny at East Lake.

Past champ and World No. 10 Rickie Fowler authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the Dell Technologies Championship to post 7-under 206, up 20 places to T8 with play still in progress.

The 28-year-old has one top 10 at TPC Boston in seven prior appearances, coming from behind to win in 2015. That's also his lone win so far in 25 overall FedExCup Playoffs events. The Oklahoma State product found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.755 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.566 around-the-green. He carded five birdies, four in his first seven holes, adding a final birdie-2 at 16. The Jupiter, Florida, resident's split featured three from between 10 and 36 feet, also saving par two times from between seven and 12 feet. He posted 1.583 putts per GIR and 3.301 SG: Putting, taking just 25 total putts.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 10 Rickie Fowler struggled to a 4-over-par 39-35=74 in the third round of THE NORTHERN TRUST, falling 21 spots to T22 on 2-under 208, a distant 10 in arrears of playing competitor and 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth, who shot a day-tying-low 64.

After opening in 68-66, the 28-year-old co-led with three others, including Spieth. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he conjured six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, posting -1.001 SG: Approach-the-Green and -2.565 SG: Around-the-Green. The California native got off to a horrid start, bogeying three straight and five of his first six before fighting back with three birdie-3s at holes 9, 11 and 12, all from between 10 and 29 feet. The comeback stalled out from there however, squaring two more bogeys at 14 and 18, concluding a forgettable day that saw him go 1-for-8 in scrambling. Fowler carved out a 0.469 SG: Putting but lost 4.155 strokes tee-to-green and 3.686 SG: Total.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 10 Rickie Fowler authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of THE NORTHERN TRUST to post 6-under 134, up 11 places to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead of Jhonattan Vegas and playing competitor Dustin Johnson. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is tied for the lead with three others. It's his sixth career 36-hole lead/co-lead, previously 0-for-5 converting.

This is the 28-year-old's eighth consecutive appearance with four prior top 25s and three top 10s, three in his last four tries, including a best of T7 last year (Bethpage Black). He kicked off with a five-birdie three-bogey 68 and on Day 2, outpaced a lone bogey-4 at No. 2 with five circles at 12, 13, 4, 6 and 9. The Oklahoma State product's split included four from inside of 9'0", walking off with his long of the day of 15'6" at the par-4 ninth. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.344 strokes off-the-tee and 2.353 approach-the-green. Fowler was inside the top 30 in FedExCup points last season (16th) thru the first leg of the Playoffs before T46 and 59th-place finishes knocked him out, missing the TOUR Championship by one place at 31st in the standings.

World No. 10 Rickie Fowler twirled a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to post 5-under 279, up six spots on the live leaderboard to T6, one shy of 72-hole clubhouse leader Francesco Molinari and tying the low round in the clubhouse with three others. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler finished T5, three back of champion Justin Thomas.

After opening in progressively worse laps of 69-70-73, the 28-year-old began T12 on 1-under, six adrift of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner. Playing out of the eighth-to-last twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.613 strokes off-the-tee and 2.730 tee-to-green. The Oklahoma State product squared bogey-5s at Nos. 2 and 8 (failed scrambles), outpaced by six circles at 4, 7 and four straight at 12-15, five from inside of nine feet with a long 21'4" at the par-4 12th. He recorded 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.082 SG: Putting, buoyed by par-savers at 17 and 18 from 7'6" and 8'8", respectively. This was Fowler's eighth PGA and second top 10 (T3/2014), and his 13th top 25 in 32 majors, fourth straight, and eighth top 10.
Aug 13 - 5:59 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 3 Rickie Fowler engineered a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the second round of the 99th PGA Championship to reach 3-under 139, up five places to T3 with play still in progress.

The 28-year-old improved to nine (of 14) fairways but digressed to nine greens in regulation. He gained 0.9 strokes off-the-tee and 1.9 tee-to-green, diminished slightly by -0.3 approach-the-green. The Oklahoma State product outpaced a lone bogey-5 at 12 (failed scramble) with circles at the par-4 14th and par-3 17th from 3'6" and 14'10", respectively. He posted 1.7 putts per GIR and 1.9 SG: Putting, taking 25 total putts.

Rickie Fowler battled through an early hiccup to salvage a 2-under-par 34-35=69 during round one of the 99th PGA Championship, positioning himself inside the top 10 as play winds down on Thursday.

Fowler converted a pair of birdies from 6-to-10 feet at Nos. 3 and 4 to jump out to a fast start. From there, he found trouble in the fairway bunker on the par-4 fifth hole, ultimately leading to a triple-bogey 7. Fowler did not fold up his table and leave. Instead, he kept firing at flagsticks, knocking in four more birdies, all from inside 12 feet. The six total birdies ranks first in the field through day one. Entering the week ranked 1st on TOUR in strokes gained putting, that was his strongest asset today, as well, gaining 3.71 strokes putting on the round (ranks 2nd in the field). Playing at the site of his first career win, Fowler is in good shape after round one, still searching for his first major championship victory.
Aug 10 - 6:57 PM

World No. 10 Rickie Fowler is at Quail Hollow Club (par 71) for his eighth consecutive PGA Championship and checks in off solo 9th at the WGC-Bridgestone and at 6th in the FedExCup standings.

The 28-year-old is 6-for-7 at the PGA with two top 25s and one top 10, a T3 in 2014 at the par-71 Valhalla GC. Overall, it's his 32nd major appearance with seven missed cuts, most recently at the 2015 U.S. Open (Chambers Bay). The Oklahoma State product has 12 top 25s, three straight, and seven top 10s, highlighted by T2s at the 2014 Open and 2014 U.S. Open (Pinehurst No. 2). He's posted six top 25s in his last seven worldwide starts, five of those top 10s and three of those top 5s, including a T5 at the U.S. Open. Fowler's a four-time winner on TOUR, once this season in 16 starts (Honda), and won his maiden title here in 2012 at the Wells Fargo (playoff).

World No. 11 Rickie Fowler styled a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to wrap on 6-under 274, up 10 spots to T6 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler finished in solo 9th.

This was the 28-year-old's eighth Bridgestone, sixth top 25 and should be a fifth top 10, fourth straight. Overall, it was his 26th WGC event and possibly a 12th top 10. After kicking off in 70-71-67, the Oklahoma State product began T16 on 2-under, one shy of the overnight top 10. On seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he was blemish-free 5-under thru 12 holes, circling Nos. 4, 5, 7 (from 39'1"), 10 and 12, before retreating two with bogeys at 13 and 16. The Jupiter, Florida, resident walked off with an 18-footer for birdie-3, recording a tidy 1.455 putts per GIR and 4.798 SG: Putting.

Rickie Fowler turns his attention toward Firestone Country Club for an eighth appearance at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Fowler has been the poster child for all-around performance this year. He ranks 55th or better in all four sub-categories of strokes gained, including 3rd in the putting department. On top of the stellar year-long form, Fowler also has some solid course results to lean on. In seven visits to Firestone CC, he's picked up four top 10s including each of his last three trips. The 28-year-old has the perfect blend of form and course history, making him a top-tier pick in all fantasy formats.

Rickie Fowler got off to another hot start on day one of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open at Dundonald Links, signing for a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 to share the clubhouse lead with English duo Ian Poulter and Callum Shinkwin.

Fowler topped the leaderboard after the first round of the U.S. Open at Erin Hills and also at April's Houston Open and it was a similar story today on the Ayrshire coast. Starting at 10, the 2015 Scottish Open winner banked three straight pars before moving forwards with red numbers at 13 and 14. While playing partners Rory McIlroy (74) and Henrik Stenson (72) struggled, Fowler continued his cruise around the links with a hat-trick of birdies at 3, 4 and 5. Four closing pars left him in a share of the lead and in great position to emulate his win in this tournament at Gullane two years ago when he opened with a 66.

2015 Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open champion Rickie Fowler returns to the tournament at the new venue of Dundonald Links in Troon, Ayrshire this week.

It’s always been pretty clear and evident that Fowler has the skills to play links golf well, as a record of 5-for-6 in The Open proves (a log book that includes T2 and T5). He also finished T30 at Royal County Down in 2015 in the Irish Open, but he has reserved his very best for this tournament, in which he debuted with T8 at Royal Aberdeen in 2014 (closing round of 65) and then completed victory at Gullane two years ago (with a neat week’s work of 66-68-66-68). There was to be no defense, but he returns this year and that’s doubly worth noting given that five of the last six Open Champions prepped in this week’s event (since it went to links golf indeed). His form is wonderful, with three top five finishes in his last four starts, only the win is lacking.
