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.
Apr 7 - 7:07 PM

First-round leader and World No. 9 Rickie Fowler battled to a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open for a four-day total of 16-under 272, down one spot into a two-way T3, four back of champion and playing competitor Russell Henley, who shot 65.

After the 36-hole cut was made, Fowler was the top-ranked player left for the weekend. He was the 18-hole pace-setter (by one) with 64, dropped to solo 4th with 71, and began the final frame in solo 2nd, three shy of overnight leader Sung Kang. The 28-year-old's 67 in R3, ended with a bogey- double-bogey finish, and he opened the finale with another double bogey-6 at the second and bogey-6 at four, 6-over for his last eight holes. He finally righted the ship, playing his final 14 in blemish-free 5-under, but the damage was already done, finishing with a disappointing -1.433 SG: Putting and 33 putts total. Fowler was T1 for the week in birdies with 27, and T4 in bogeys (5), but ate three doubles, which was 68th (of 70). It is his best at the SHO in six tries and third top 10, and fourth top 10 of the season (seven starts) and fifth straight top 20, highlighted by his fourth TOUR title at the Honda.
Apr 2 - 4:07 PM

First-round leader Rickie Fowler finished bogey, double bogey-6 for a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in today's third round of the Shell Houston Open to enter the final round three shots back of leader Sung Kang on 14-under 202.

After kicking off in 64-71, the 28-year-old began in solo 4th, seven shy of Kang. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he landed eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 6.444 strokes against the field average. The Oklahoma State product played his first 16 holes in blemish-free 8-under, circling birdies at Nos. 3, 5, 7-9 and 12-14, but for a second round in a row, played his final four holes in 3-over, this one ending with a 4-jack from 56'7", missing two come-backers from inside of five feet. He's vying for his fifth TOUR title in 182 career events, second this season in seven starts, joining The Honda Classic, where he was 54-hole leader by four and won by four, which was his first career win from the three-quarter perch.
Apr 1 - 6:32 PM

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler settled for an even-par 34-37=71 during round two of the Shell Houston Open, finding himself at 9-under 135 but seven strokes off the torrid pace set by Sung Kang.

Fowler flung together a tremendous 8-under 64 on day one, overcoming mud balls and all. His competitor, Sung Kang, certainly applied the pressure this morning with a course-record-tying 9-under 63 to reach 16-under 128 before Fowler even got his second round started. The Oklahoma State product didn't falter early on and even reached 12-under after his 11th (and 13th) hole today. From there he swallowed a tough double bogey at the par-5 15th and then landed his tee ball in a very unfortunate greenside bunker lie at the par-3 16th, leading to a bogey. Conditions were getting very tough as he was coming into the clubhouse with gusty winds and greens firming up. Fowler will be happy to walk off the course and regroup ahead of the weekend. Even though he's seven off the pace, he's just one stroke shy of the duo in second place (Russell Henley and Hudson Swafford).
Mar 31 - 7:33 PM

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.
Mar 18 - 1:48 PM

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).
Feb 25 - 5:58 PM

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.
Feb 2 - 3:45 PM

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.
