World No. 8 Rickie Fowler hung up a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the 2018 Masters to conclude on 14-under 274, up one spot to solo 2nd, one adrift of overnight leader and champion Patrick Reed, and his fifth straight top 25 in majors.
After opening with 70-72-65, the 29-year-old began in solo 3rd, five back. Playing out of the penultimate twosome for a second year in a row, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.44 putts per GIR. The Oklahoma State product was slow out of the gate, 1-over thru seven holes with six pars and bogey-5 at No. 4. He awoke with back-to-back birdies at 8 and 9, and then roared home with circles at 12, 13, 15 and 18, dropping a 7-footer at the last to post the clubhouse lead. This was the Jupiter, Florida, resident's eighth Masters, fourth top 25 and second top 10 (T5/2014). Overall, it's his eighth top 10 in 33 majors and third runner-up, joining T2s at the 2014 Open Championship and the 2014 U.S. Open. Fowler, looking for his fifth TOUR title in 205 events, settles for a 13th runner-up, second this season in nine starts (OHL Classic). Apr 8 - 7:16 PM

World No. 8 Rickie Fowler smoothed a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the 2018 Masters to post 9-under 207, up five spots on the live leaderboard to solo 3rd, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and matching the low round of the day and week with Jon Rahm. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is solo 3rd, five back of leader Patrick Reed.

This was the 29-year-old's 117th career round in a major and ties his best shot in Round 1 of last year's U.S. Open (Erin Hills). He's chasing his first major win in his 33th major appearance, looking to better a pair of T2s at the 2014 U.S. Open and the 2014 Open Championship. After opening with 70-72, the Oklahoma State product began T8, seven short of 36-hole leader Reed. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, recording 1.44 putts per GIR with 26 total putts. Fowler circled five birdies at holes 5 (from 42 feet), 6, 8 (19 feet), 15 and 17, adding eagle-3 at 2 from 25 feet. He was also solo 3rd here last year and closed in 4-over 76 for T11.

World No. 8 Rickie Fowler carved out an even-par 36-36=72 in the second round of the 82nd Masters for a 36-hole total of 2-under 142, up two spots on the live leaderboard to T9, two adrift of clubhouse co-leaders Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is T8, seven adrift of leader Patrick Reed.

This is the 29-year-old's 33rd major with 13 prior top 25s and seven top 10s with a best of T2 two times: 2014 Open Championship (Royal Liverpool); 2014 U.S. Open (Pinehurst). He was one of three players to post top-25 finishes in each of the four majors last year, highlighted by a pair of T5s at the PGA and the U.S. Open. The Jupiter, Florida, resident opened with a four-birdie, two-bogey 70, including three straight birdies at 15-17. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation on Day 2, cancelling three circles at 5, 8 and 17 with three squares at 1, 9 and 16 (3-putt from 44 feet). Fowler posted a commercial 1.83 putts per GIR and had three three-putts, lowlighted by a 3-putt par at 15 from 68 feet.

Rickie Fowler rolls into Augusta National Golf Club looking for his first-ever victory at the Masters.

This will be Fowler's eighth trip to Augusta and he has been pretty good over the years. While the orange-clad one has never won a green jacket he has certainly been in the hunt. He has finished 12th or better in three of his past four appearances at the course sandwiched around a missed cut in 2016. He has made it to the weekend in six of his seven career trips to Augusta. Fowler looked like he was going to take a big step forward this season with three straight top-5 finishes to kick off 2018, including a win in the Hero Challenge. But he has cooled slightly finishing 37 or worse in two of the past three after a missed cut at The Honda Classic. Fowler seems to bring his 'A' game to Augusta, but he just hasn't been able to get over the hump. Maybe 2018 will be his year to break through.
Apr 3 - 10:46 PM

Rickie Fowler flew out of the gate in round two of the Houston Open but settled down to record a 4-under-par 32-36=68, placing him off the lead as he heads into the weekend on 10-under 134.

The Oklahoma State product started his day PAR-BIRDIE-BIRDIE-BIRDIE-PAR-BIRDIE with a 38'4" birdie bomb at the par-4 second hole being the highlight. He cooled off from there, finding water twice before his day was done, trading one more birdie with one bogey. On the season this will be the fifth time he's been inside the top 10 thru 36 holes (7 starts). He's found just two top 10s over that stretch but you can't fault him for continuing to put himself in prime position. At the midpoint, Fowler ranks 3rd in strokes gained putting but outside the top 30 in each of the three other strokes-gained sub-categories.
Mar 30 - 7:50 PM

Rickie Fowler caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the Houston Open, just one off the torrid pace set by Lucas Glover. UPDATE: With round one in the books, Fowler is trailing Paul Dunne by two strokes.

Fowler has been working on some early-season swing tweaks and his putting has suffered as a result. He looks to have potentially fixed that dent in his game as he rolled in seven putts from outside 10 feet today, including a trio from the 29-to-31 foot range. Fowler walked off the course gaining 3.655 strokes with the putter. Fast starts have not been the problem for Fowler who was T8 and T4 after R1 of the WGC-Mexico Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational, respectively. Those are his last two starts and he ended up finishing T37 and T14 in those events. Gamers should watch very closely to see if he can keep his foot on the gas for three more days. If he does, he will instantly rise on the list of likely contenders at next week's Masters Tournament.
Mar 29 - 4:12 PM

World No. 8 Rickie Fowler is in Humble, Texas, for his seventh Houston Open and checks in at 28th in the FedExCup standings and off a T14 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational two weeks ago.

The Oklahoma State product is a pre-tourney 10/1 outright, sharing the bookmaker's top spot with Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth. He's 6-for-6 at the par-72 Golf Club of Houston with three top 25s, each doubling as top 10s, including a best of T3 last year where he was the 18-hole leader and solo 2nd thru 54 holes (64-71-67-70). In 24 laps, the 29-year-old's scoring average is 71.00 with eight straight in the red. He's 5-for-7 on the season with four top 25s and two top 10s, most recently a T4 at the Sentry TOC back in January. Fowler's led/co-led three times this season after any round. He was a 36-hole co-leader at the OHL (Nov.) and finished solo 2nd, and was a 36-hole co-leader and 54-hole leader at the Phoenix Open and finished T11. He's now 0-for-8 when leading/co-leading at the midpoint and 1-for-6 from the three-quarter perch.

Rickie Fowler won't make an appearance at this week's WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, taking a breather before his next stretch of golf.

Fowler was silently lurking at last week's Arnold Palmer Invitational but a 2-over 74 dropped him from T6 to T14 on the final day. Playing the role of tournament host last week, perhaps he's a bit more fatigued mentally compared to most weeks. In addition, Fowler spoke of some recent swing changes that are still "scary to trust." After a strong showing last week, Fowler will likely return to the practice range to hone in those swing changes before pegging at next week's Houston Open and then the Masters.

World No. 7 Rickie Fowler played his final two holes in 3-over-par en route to a 2-under 34-36=70 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a 54-hole total of 8-under 208, positioned T6 on the leaderboard, which is where he began, four in arrears of leader Henrik Stenson.

After opening with 67-71, the Jupiter, Florida, resident began five back of co-leaders Stenson and Bryson DeChambeau. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.402 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 2.505 around-the-green. The 29-year-old was 5-under thru 16 holes, silencing bogey-4 at 14 (3-putt from 50'11") with six birdies at 6, 7, 10, 12, 13 (from 14'5") and 16. He bogeyed the par-3 17th (failed sand save) and then walked off with double bogey-6 after hitting his second from the fairway into a greenside bunker and plugging. Fowler registered 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.539 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. He'll play out of the fourth-to-last twosome on Sunday with fellow Oklahoma State Cowboy Talor Gooch. Three of Fowler's four TOUR wins are in come-from-behind fashion, most recently the 2015 Deustche Bank.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 7 Rickie Fowler tacked on a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a 36-hole total of 6-under 138, currently T4, which is where he began, and five short of clubhouse leaders Henrik Stenson and Bryson DeChambeau. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is T6, trailing Stenson and DeChambeau.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident conjured six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 2.015 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 1.160 off-the-tee. He squared three bogeys at 11, 2 and 3 (tee ball in the water), slightly outpaced by four birdies at 16, 17, 5 (from 17'8") and 6. The 29-year-old posted 1.727 putts per GIR and 0.169 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.
Mar 16 - 1:29 PM

Rickie Fowler breezed through Bay Hill Club & Lodge during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, signing for a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 to place himself three off the torrid pace set by Henrik Stenson.

Fowler was paired with Rory McIlroy and Marc Leishman today and the trio drafted well off each other, with Fowler and McIlroy both walking onto the 18th tee box with a clean card still intact. It was relatively stress-free for Fowler, outside of the par-5 sixth where he rinsed his approach shot when going for the green in two. Remarkably, he nearly dunked his 202-yard approach shot after taking a penalty, tapping in for an unconventional par. Despite that water ball, he walked off the course gaining 4.074 strokes on approach. Fowler currently sits at T3 on the live leaderboard but was the first golfer to sign for a bogey-free round today. Playing his 23rd round at Bay Hill, this will be the seventh time he's positioned himself inside the top 10 after any API round.
Mar 15 - 6:20 PM

Rickie Fowler travels to the Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club & Lodge this week looking to regain his form.

Fowler posted three consecutive top-5 finishes to open the season, including a win at the Hero World Challenge. However, he missed a cut at The Honda Classic, and was a very marginal 37th in Mexico. He'll try to conjure up the magic which led him to a 12th-place finish last year at Bay Hill. Fowler has made the cut in five of his past six starts at Bay Hill, including a third-place showing in 2013. He has been sailing along this season, for the most part, but Sundays have been trying. He ranks second on the PGA Tour in third-round scoring with a 68.00 average, but he is 100th in final-round scoring with a 70.33 average. He'll need to turn Sundays around and he'll be rolling right along again.

Fresh off a missed cut at the Honda Classic, Rickie Fowler got back on track with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the opening round of the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Fowler missed the cut in his attempt at a Honda Classic title defense. That allowed him to put in a little extra range work and get his swing back in sync. All that work paid off today as he pelted 17 greens in regulation, setting up 13 scoring chances from inside 20 feet. Fowler converted on four of those to offset a lone bogey. Fowler talked about some funny bounces on the greens and it shows in his putting performance, losing 1.136 strokes with the flat stick today. During this event last year, he gained 8 strokes approaching-the-green but gave back more than two strokes in the short-game department. He'll instantly become one of the favorites if he figures out the greens here at Chapultepec GC.
Mar 1 - 7:01 PM

Defending champion and World No. 7 Rickie Fowler stumbled to a 6-over-par 36-40=76 in the second round of The Honda Classic and at 7-over 71-76=147, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 76 players from a field of 144 made the cut of 5-over 145, 18, T59 on the number. Fowler, a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, misses his second cut of the season in five events, second in his last three starts (Farmers). After missing his first two cuts at the Honda in 2010 and 2011, he had cashed in six straight, and today's 76 matched his worst round at PGA National (2011/R1). The Jupiter, Florida, resident is in the published field at next week's WGC-Mexico. He totaled 16 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation, overshadowing four birdies with nine bogeys and a double, and ranked 125th in SG: Putting (-2.903). Other notable early exits include: 146- Patrick Reed; Tyrrell Hatton .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Graeme McDowell; Brandt Snedeker .. 148- Billy Horschel; Charles Howell III .. 149- Russell Knox; Kevin Kisner .. 152- Chesson Hadley; Patton Kizzire.
Feb 23 - 6:44 PM

Rickie Fowler closed out his 54-hole lead at last year's Honda Classic and he returns this week for a chance to defend his title at PGA National's Champion Course.

Fowler was 0-for-4 in converting 54-hole leads before last year's big win. He has since added another none-conversion to that table, finishing T11 at this year's WM Phoenix Open after leading thru 54 holes. Gamers shouldn't be too worried about that fade as he arrives in great form. If we include the unofficial Hero World Challenge, he has positioned himself T11 or better after 16-of-18 rounds since the start of the 2017-18 season. With a win and two other top 10s on his Honda Classic resume, gamers should expect more of the same this week as Fowler plays in a home game. He should be considered an elite option in all fantasy formats this week.
