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. Jul 13 - 8:26 AM

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.

Pre-tourney odds-fave and World No. 9 Rickie Fowler fashioned a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 5-under 275, up 13 places on the live leaderboard to T5 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler finished in a two-way T3, two shy of a two-man playoff involving Kyle Stanley and Charles Howell III.

The Quicken Loans ambassador was a 7/1 outright and the top-ranked player in OWGR. After kicking off in 70-72-68, he began T18 on even-par, seven shy of 54-hole leader David Lingmerth. The Oklahoma State product landed eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.247 strokes around-the-green but gaining 3.881 approaching-the-green. He circled a career-best nine birdies at Nos. 5, four straight at 7-10, 12, 13, 16 and 18, four from between 10 and 22 feet, posting 1.385 putts per GIR and 2.745 SG: Putting. The 28-year-old took some luster off with bogey-5s at 4 and 11 (3-putt from 76'4"), and double bogey-6 at 14 (tee ball in the water). This will be his fourth top 25 at the QLN in six tries and second top 10, joining solo 2nd in 2015. It's Fowler's 10th top 25 of the season in 14 starts and seventh top 10, three in his last four starts, and possibly a sixth top 5.

Quicken Loans player ambassador and odds-fave Rickie Fowler is in Potomac, Maryland, for the Quicken Loans National and checks in at 9th in the FedExCup standings.

At No. 9 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the 28-year-old is top-ranked in the 120-man field and a pre-tourney 7/1 outright. He's playing his sixth QLN with three previous top 25s and one top 10, a solo 2nd in 2015 (Robert Trent Jones GC, Virginia), where he was T2 thru 36 holes and 3rd thru 54 holes. The California native is 10-for-13 on the season with nine top 25s and six top 10s, all top-6 finishes or better, highlighted by his fourth TOUR title at the Honda Classic nine individual starts ago. He arrives off T2 at the Memorial, missed cut at the FedEx St. Jude, and T5 at the U.S. Open, where he was the 18-hole leader and no worse than T5 after any round (65-73-68-72). The Florida resident ranks 2nd on TOUR in SG: Total, 1st in scoring average (69.322) and 1st in total driving.

First-round leader and World No. 9 Rickie Fowler patched together an even-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the 117th U.S. Open to wrap on 10-under 278, good for a three-way T5, a distant six in arrears of champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 67.

This was the 29-year-old's ninth U.S. Open, third top 25 and third top 10, first since T2 in 2014 (Pinehurst No. 2). It was his 30th overall major championship appearance, will be a 11th top 25 and seventh top 10. After kicking off in 65-73-68, the California native began in solo 5th, two shy of 54-hole leader Brian Harman. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and mustered 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.771 strokes approaching-the-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident exchanged three bogey-5s at holes 5, 12 (3-putt from 30'11") and 15 (3-putt from 44'10") with three birdie-4s at 1, 7 and 18, two from between 17 and 21 feet. He posted a disappointing 2.000 putt per GIR and -0.041 SG: Putting, taking 30 total putts. This is Fowler's ninth top 25 of the season in 13 starts, sixth top 10 and fifth top 5.

Rickie Fowler bounced back in round three of the U.S. Open at Erin Hills, firing a 4-under-par 68 to post 10-under 206 and finish his third round just a shot behind clubhouse leader Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With R3 play completed, Fowler is in solo 5th, two adrift of 54-hole leader Brian Harman.

One back at start of play, first-round leader Fowler looked to be slipping away after missing the green at the par-3 13th and then seeing his chip up the bank return to his feet. Staring at double which would have knocked him back to 6-under, Fowler got up and down to limit the damage to bogey before launching birdies at 14, 15 and 16 from 8'11", 6'6" and 10'6", respectively to reignite his challenge. A loose drive at 18 threatened to end his day on a sour note but he managed to scramble par. Earlier, Fowler had played a fine front nine with birdies at 1, 7 and 9 against a lone bogey at 8. It's fair to say that his smooth and confident putting stroke bailed him out today; Fowler needed just 24 putts after splitting just 8 (of 14) fairways and finding only 11 greens in regulation. The windy conditions forecast for Sunday could help his bid for a first major title.

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler backed up with a 1-over-par 34-39=73 in the second round of the 117th U.S. Open to post 6-under 138, down four places to T5, one back of 36-hole leaders Paul Casey, Brian Harman, Tommy Fleetwood and Brooks Koepka.

After opening with a week-tying-low bogey-free 65, the 28-year-old led by one over two players. On Day 2, he went out in blemish-free 2-under, circling holes 2 (from 8'2") and 7 from the fringe 51'0" away, but stalled out from there, coming home in birdie-less 3-over with a hat-trick of bogeys at 11-13. The Oklahoma State product's drops were two failed scrambles and a 3-putt at the par-3 13th from 29'7", though he did save par from 7'11" at the par-4 17th. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR, -1.580 SG: Putting, and needing 31 total putts. Fowler's only other legit scoring try was a miss from 6'9" at the par-5 14th.

Rickie Fowler bombarded Erin Hills Golf Course in round one of the 117th U.S. Open Championship, staking the early title of clubhouse leader after posting a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65.

Arriving fresh off a missed cut in Memphis, Fowler set that poor performance aside and played brilliantly in the opening round at Erin Hills. Using a conservative approach off the tee, he split 12 (of 14) fairways en route to 15 greens in regulation. From there he stuck eight approach shots inside 15 feet and converted on all eight. Today's round goes in the books as Fowler's lowest career round in a major championship and also matches the lowest U.S. Open R1 score in relation to par (Jack Nicklaus; Tom Weiskopf, 1980).

World No. 9 and pre-tourney fave Rickie Fowler battled to an even-par 38-32=70 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic but at 4-over-par 74-70=144, missed the cut by three shots.

A total of 85 pros and one amateur from a field of 155 pros and one amateur made the 36-hole cut of 1-over 141 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Fowler was the top-ranked player in OWGR and a 15/2 outright. This was his second visit to Memphis, joining a T13 in 2014. The Oklahoma State product labored to a 4-over 74 on Day 1, outbalancing two birdies with one bogey, a double bogey-6, and a triple bogey-7, and cancelled four birdies with four bogeys in R2. For the short week, he conjured 14 (of 28) fairways and 20 greens in regulation, 10 GIR in each lap for 55.56 percent, posting a cumulative -2.429 SG: Approach-the-Green. This is 28-year-old's third MC of the season in 12 starts. Other notable early exits: 142- Jim Furyk; Hudson Swafford ... 143- Scott Piercy ... 144- Daniel Summerhays; 2009 champ Brian Gay; Harold Varner III ... 145- Smylie Kaufman ... 146- William McGirt ... 148- Russell Henley.

World No. 12 Rickie Fowler handed in a 2-under-par 33-37=70 after the twice delayed final round of the Memorial Tournament for a four-day tally of 10-under 278, up four spots into a two-way T2, three short of champion and playing competitor Jason Dufner, who shot 68.

This was the 28-year-old's eighth Memorial and second top 10, joining solo 2nd on debut in 2010 (as 54-hole leader). It's his 10th runner-up finish in 186 career events (181 pro), first since P2 at the 2016 WM Phoenix Open. The Oklahoma State product records his eighth top 25 of the season in 11 starts, fifth top 10 and third podium, joining T3 at the Houston Open and his fourth TOUR title at the Honda. After opening in 70-66-72, he began T6, five back of 54-hole leader Daniel Summerhays. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he was bogey-free 4-under thru 13 holes, circling Nos. 1, 5, 7 and 11, before stalling out with bogeys at 14 and 18. Fowler was leading by one at the first weather delay, 12-under thru 12 holes, and was trailing Dufner by two playing the 18th at the second stoppage, returning for a walk-off 5, dropping to joint runner-up.

World No. 12 Rickie Fowler patched together an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of the Memorial Tournament, dropping three spots into a two-way T6, five shy of 54-hole leader Daniel Summerhays.

After kicking off in 70-66, the 28-year-old began in solo 3rd, six adrift of 36-hole leader Jason Dufner. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he conjured eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.449 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.404 tee-to-green. The Oklahoma State product cancelled out three birdies at 7, 8 and 18, each from between six and 24 feet, with three bogeys at 2, 11 and 13, all on failed scrambles. He posted 1.727 putts per GIR and -0.043 SG: Putting, needing 29 total putts.
Jun 3 - 6:56 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 12 Rickie Fowler hung up a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Memorial Tournament to post 8-under 136, up 11 spots on the live leaderboard to solo 2nd, a distant six in arrears of 36-hole leader Jason Dufner. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is in solo 3rd and will play out of the penultimate twosome in R3.

This is the 28-year-old's 24th career lap at Muirfield Village GC and his third at 66 or better. He also shot 66 in R2 on debut in 2010 for the outright lead at the midpoint, and led at the three-quarter pole as well before finishing solo 2nd. In yesterday's first-round 70, he began 3-over thru four holes, including a triple bogey-7 at the second, but has since played 11-under golf. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 3.371 strokes approaching-the-green at last glance. The Oklahoma State product circled six birdies at holes 11, 15, 1 and 6-8, all from 13 feet and in. He posted 1.733 putts per GIR and 1.027 SG: Putting, taking 29 total swipes with the flat stick.
Jun 2 - 1:25 PM

World No. 12 Rickie Fowler is at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, and checks in at 10th in the FedExCup standings.

The California native is 4-for-7 at the par-72 Muirfield Village GC with a 71.59 scoring average in 22 rounds. His best finish is solo 2nd on debut in 2010, where he was the 54-hole leader by three and lost by three after a closing-73. The Jupiter, Florida, resident posted respective finishes of T22-T52-T37 in 2011-13, but has since missed three straight cuts. He's 8-for-10 this season with four top 10s, highlighted by T3 at the Houston Open and his 4-shot win at The Honda Classic as 54-hole leader, his first win in five tries when leading thru 54 holes. The Oklahoma State product has played just three tourneys in the last eight weeks, posting T11 at the Masters, missed cut at the Zurich (teamed with Jason Day), and a T60 at THE PLAYERS three weeks ago.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 8 Rickie Fowler carved out a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's third round of the 81st Masters to reach 5-under 211, down two places to solo 3rd, one shy of co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia.

After kicking off in 73-67, the 28-year-old was tied for the lead with three others, including first-timer and playing competitor Thomas Pieters. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, registering 1.50 average putts per hole and zero 3-putts. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared three bogey-5s at 3, 7 and 10, slightly outpaced by birdies at 2, 8, 13 and 15, all birdie-4s. This is his 29th major appearance and has been a runner-up two times, both in 2014 at the Open Championship (Royal Liverpool GC) and the U.S. Open at Pinehurst Resort No. 2.
Apr 8 - 7:13 PM

World No. 8 Rickie Fowler twirled a day-low 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's second round of the 2017 Masters to post 4-under 140, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Charley Hoffman, Sergio Garcia and Thomas Pieters.

The 28-year-old is making his seventh appearance with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a T5 in 2014, which was buoyed by a third-round 67. Today's lap was his 24th at ANGC and his low is 67, now posted for a third time. Last year, the California native began with 80, a career worst at the Masters, and missed the cut by three after a 73 in R2. This year, he opened with 73, ending with a disappointing double bogey-6, but got going early in R2 with a hole-out eagle at the par-5 second from a greenside bunker. The Oklahoma State product added birdies at holes 3, 8, 13 and 17, suffering a lone bogey-6 at the 15th after hitting his second to the par 5 over the green and into the water. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and mustered 10 greens in regulation for a second straight round, recording a stellar 1.28 average putts per hole with zero 3-putts.
