With preferred lies in effect, second-round co-leader and World No. 10 Rickie Fowler tacked on a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to conclude his tournament debut on 18-under 266, good for solo 2nd, one shy of champion and playing competitor Patton Kizzire, who also shot 67. Fowler drops to 0-for-7 when leading/co-leading after 36 holes.
After opening his season debut in 65-67, the 28-year-old co-led with Kizzire. Along with Kizzire and 11 others, he had to play 36 holes on Sunday due to several weather delays/suspensions. Paired with Kizzire for all 36, he closed with 67-67, while the champ closed in 66-67. The Oklahoma State product, top-ranked in OWGR and the pre-tourney fave outright, settles for his 12th runner-up finish in 197 career events (192 pro), second in his last three starts dating to T2 at the BMW Championship. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR with 25 total putts. Fowler outflanked bogeys at holes 1 and 5 with six circles at 3, 4, 6, 13, 16 and 17, but both players carded routine pars at 18 for the final margin. Nov 12 - 6:19 PM

Making his season and tournament debut, World No. 10 Rickie Fowler styled a 4-under-par 32-35=67 in Sunday's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 14-under 199, down one spot to solo 2nd, one back of playing competitor and 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire, who shot 66.

The 28-year-old is chasing his fifth TOUR title in his 197th career start, first since the 2017 Honda as 54-hole leader. Three of his four wins have been in come-from-behind fashion, most recently erasing a one shot deficit with 3-under 68 to win the 2015 Deutsche Bank (now THE NORTHERN TRUST) by one. After kicking off in 65-67, the California native co-led with Kizzire and Patrick Rodgers. He hit seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, offsetting a lone bogey-5 at 17 with five circles, including four straight at holes 5-8. The Oklahoma State product posted 1.643 putts per GIR with 28 total putts. There is no re-pairing taking place between Rounds 3 and 4, so it'll be Kizzire, Fowler and Rodgers, who dipped to T7 with 72, again in the final threesome.

Making his season and tournament debut, World No. 10 Rickie Fowler styled a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the weather-delayed second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 10-under 132, up two places to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead of Patton Kizzire and Patrick Rodgers. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler is T1 with Kizzire and Rodgers, his seventh career 36-hole lead/co-lead in 197 career starts, previously 0-for-6 converting.

The 28-year-old, a pre-tourney 9/1 outright fave and top-ranked player in OWGR, was 4-under thru 15 holes on Friday, 10-under total when play was suspended due to darkness. Along with 52 others, who waited out a 6 hour, 10 minute delay to the restart on Saturday, he returned to play his final three holes in all pars, including an up-and-down sand-save at the par-4 18th. The Oklahoma State product mustered seven (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, outpacing bogey-5 at 14, his first blemish of the tourney, with five circles at 3, 5, 9, 10 and 13. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR with 26 total putts.

Rickie Fowler pieced together a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of his tournament debut at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, placing him three strokes off the torrid pace set by Patton Kizzire.

Fowler is making his first start of the season, and first appearance since the Presidents Cup. In his pre-tournament presser he said he's been focusing mostly on strength training during his break, but didn't lose too much form when he played a few recent practice rounds. That looked to be the case today. While his approach play may have been a bit sloppy, his short game still looked sharp, getting up-and-down to save par on each of his five missed greens today. El Camaleón Golf Club is a resort course that doesn't take much surveying to get the lay of the land. Fowler has taken an instant liking to the venue, but he'll need to stay sharp off-the-tee for three more rounds, with trouble lurking everywhere for stray tee balls.

Making his season debut, World No. 10 Rickie Fowler, a pre-tourney 9/1 outright fave, is also the top-ranked player in OWGR at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba, where he'll make his tournament debut.

Back in mid-September, tournament officials and title sponsor OHL announced the 28-year-old as their first player commitment, and rightfully so. He's one of four players ranked in the Top 25 OWGR, joining defending champ Pat Perez, past champ Charley Hoffman, and fellow first-timer Patrick Reed. By comparison, the OHL had just one top-25 OWGRer in each of the past two editions, and none from the top 10. This is the Oklahoma State product's first action since going 3-0-1 in the Presidents Cup six weeks ago, preceded by a disappointing T26 (of 30) at the TOUR Championship. He finished 7th in the final FedExCup standings with eight top 10s among 18 cashes in 23 starts, highlighted by his fourth TOUR title at The Honda Classic and two runners-up (BMW, Memorial). The Jupiter, Florida, resident also posted a career-high 16 top 25s, including eight consecutive.

In the final scheduled match of the day, Rickie Fowler beat up on Captain's pick Emiliano Grillo in Sunday singles at the Presidents Cup, thumping the Argentine 6-and-4 and providing one of the few bright spots for the home team in the final session.

Team USA entered Sunday with a near-insurmountable lead of 11 points and talks of being the greatest team ever. They conjured just three wins (of 12) and three halves to put an end to that hyperbole, with Fowler's the only match that wasn't hotly contested. The American concludes with a 3-0-1 record and 3.5 points, tied second-highest in points for the US (Dustin Johnson, 4.5 points), while Grillo, 0-3-0, was the only player to not record any points. Grillo won only one hole, a birdie-3 at eight, but that was his only highlight. Fowler won holes 3, 4 and 9, all with birdie-4s, highlighted by a 32'11" bomb at the 3rd. He won the 10th with birdie-2 (13'6"), 12 with birdie-3, and 13 and 14 with pars to conclude the match.

In the final match of Saturday morning foursomes at the Presidents Cup, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas halved their match against Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen, ending the session with Team USA holding a commanding 11.5 to 2.5 lead.

With Team USA winning the first three matches of the morning, the Internationals finally puts some points on the board on Day 3. With 14 total matches now in the books, they've tallied just one win and three halves, leaving this edition of the Presidents Cup with little remaining drama as to the eventual outcome. The South Africans built a 2 UP lead thru six holes, including circles at holes 2 and 6, with the Americans winning just the fourth with birdie-4, but they lost holes 7-9, beginning with a 3-putt bogey at 7 from 59'9" and a sloppy double bogey-6 at 8. Team USA won the ninth with their second birdie-4 of the match, now 1 UP, before Oosthuizen leveled the proceeding with a 37'10" birdie bang at the par-4 11th, but neither team conjured another win over the final seven holes, halving six of them with pars.

Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas disposed of Hideki Matsuyama and Charl Schwartzel, 6-and-4, to secure the first point for the United States Team during day one of the Presidents Cup.

Playing foursomes to kick off the festivities, the Americans alternated their way to an easy win. It wasn't an open-and-shut case, though, as the Internationals got out to an early 1-up lead after the second hole. However, Fowler ignited a fire with a hole-out birdie chip at the par-4 fourth. They would parlay that into winning the next two holes, and 7 of the next 11. Remarkably, this is Thomas' first team appearance for the United States, but with his form over the past 12 months, he could show up and contend in any format, on any course. Fowler entered with a surprisingly poor career record of 2-5-4 in team competition. That will continue to improve itself this week if they continue to play like they did today.

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.
Sep 16 - 6:30 PM

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.
Sep 14 - 6:54 PM

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.
Sep 3 - 4:20 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 6:50 PM

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.
