American Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III made three of his four captain's picks today, electing to add Rickie Fowler, J.B. Holmes, and Matt Kuchar to the squad with the final pick coming after the TOUR Championship in two weeks.
Fowler was seemingly a lock to make the team until recently when he backpedaled in the final round of The Barclays and then failed to qualify for the TOUR Championship, putting an end to his 2015-16 season. His Ryder Cup record is a less-than-stellar 0-4-4 but that such a small sample size that it could easily be fixed over the next two editions with good play. In the end, DL3 chose talent and team chemistry over RC history with this pick. J.B. Holmes goes in the other direction as he was a member of the last winning U.S. Ryder Cup team (2008) going 2-0-1 along the way. Whether it's been the Ryder Cup, Palmer Cup, Presidents Cup, or Walker Cup, Holmes has never been a part of a losing team (4-0). His distance should certainly be beneficial as they take on the lengthy Hazeltine National Golf Club in three weeks. Lastly, Matt Kuchar is as consistent as they come, making him a reliable teammate in any format. Playing in three Ryder Cups during his career, he boasts a 4-5-2 record. Sep 12 - 11:41 AM

Rickie Fowler labored to an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the BMW Championship and with a 59th-place finish on 1-over 289, was eliminated from the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 31 in the FEC standings, dropping nine spots on the week.

The 27-year-old opened the Playoffs with a T7 at The Barclays but it wasn't enough to secure a Ryder Cup berth on merit. Hoping to impress skipper Davis Love III and secure a Captain's pick, he chased with a T46 at the Deutsche Bank and this week's disappointing effort, though not necessarily an immediate disqualifier. Fowler conjured just two birdies against two bogeys in the finale and for the week, totaled only 11 birdies, outbalanced by eight bogeys and two doubles. Other notable exits from the Playoffs include: No. 32- Sergio Garcia; No. 35- Brooks Koepka; No. 36- Henrik Stenson; No. 46- Bill Haas; No. 50- Billy Horschel; No. 51- Justin Rose and No. 57- Zach Johnson. (Stenson, Haas and Horschel are former FedExCup champions.)

Beginning on No. 10 tee, defending champ Rickie Fowler back-pedaled to an even-par 34-37=71 in the second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 2-under 140, down 16 places on the live leaderboard to T54.

The 27-year-old went out in 2-over, smothering a pitch-in birdie-3 at 14 with double bogey-6 at 13 and bogey-6 at the 18th. He righted the ship on his inward half, outpacing bogey at the par-3 third (3-putt from 47'2") with birdies on Nos. 1, 7 and 9, ending on a positive note with a walk-off 3 from 12 feet. Fowler landed eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.846 putts per GIR and a dismal -2.342 SG: Putting.

Defending champ Rickie Fowler patched together a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in today's first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, currently T36 on the leaderboard, four in arrears to clubhouse co-leaders James Hahn and Ryan Moore.

The 27-year-old landed just seven (of 14) fairways for -0.811 SG: Off-the-Tee. He did hit 14 greens in regulation, contributing to 2.475 SG: Approach-the-Green, but went 2-for-4 in scrambles for -1.355 SG: Around-the-Green. Fowler birdied Nos. 6, 10, 12 and 18, three from inside of seven feet with a long of 19'9" at the par-4 10th. He won last year in his sixth appearance with trip 67s and 68.
Sep 2 - 6:19 PM

After a close call at last week's Barclays, Rickie Fowler heads toward TPC Boston for a chance to defend his title at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Fowler led after 54 holes last week at Bethpage Black before falling back with a closing 3-over 74 to finish T7. He is now 0-for-4 when holding a 54-hole lead/co-lead but last year at TPC Boston he started the finale one shot off the lead and penciled a 3-under 68 to oust Henrik Stenson by one stroke. It was his first real taste of success at the venue, entering with zero top 20s before the victory. The 27-year-old is surely disappointed that last week's effort didn't earn him an automatic seat on the United States Ryder Cup squad, but this week poses a great opportunity to rebound and show captain Davis Love III that he rounding into form at the perfect time.

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler stalled out to a 3-over-par 35-39=74 in today's final round of The Barclays for a four-day total of 6-under 278, down six places into a three-way T7, three back of champion Patrick Reed.

The 27-year-old was chasing his fourth TOUR title in his 173rd career start (168 pro), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank. This was his fourth career 54-hole lead/co-lead and he drops to 0-for-4. Fowler began the final frame with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Reed after opening in 67 and bogey-free laps of 69-68. He mustered six (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting -1.549 SG: Approach-the-Green and -1.032 SG: Around-the-Green. He went out in blemish-free 1-under, circling a 15-footer at the par-5 fifth, but the wheels came off from there, squaring bogeys on 11, 15 and 18, and double bogey-6 at 16 (all failed sand saves). Fowler played his final four holes in 3-over, sandwiching in a second birdie at the par-3 17th (22'4"). He settles for his eighth top 10 of the season in 21 starts.

Rickie Fowler spun a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of The Barclays to post 9-under 204, good for a one-shot lead at the 54-hole mark over 36-hole leader Patrick Reed.

The 27-year-old began R3 in a two-way T2 on 6-under after opening his seventh Barclays in 67-69, two shy of Reed. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he went blemish-free for a second straight lap, and is bogey-free over his last 45 holes, squaring a lone bogey-5 on the ninth hole in R1. The Oklahoma State product mustered just six (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.818 putts per GIR and 2.254 SG: Putting. He circled birdie-4s at the fifth and the seventh, adding a walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th, all three dropping from inside of eight feet. Fowler saved par twice from between 10 and 11 feet and from 23'3" at the par-4 fifth. He's making his 21st start of the season and is chasing his fourth career TOUR title (173 career events), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank.

Rickie Fowler coasted to a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 during round two of The Barclays, arriving at the midpoint on 6-under 136 in a share of second place.

For the second straight day, Fowler split nine fairways, but landed 12 greens today (one fewer than R1). While most of his work on day one was done through the air, he picked up 2.13 strokes putting in round two. That included a pair of par-savers from 8-to-10 feet as well as a 19'3" birdie splash at the par-4 second. On the week, his lone blemish is a missed 4'3" putt which lead to a bogey. The Ryder Cup standings are weighing heavily on Fowler this week, but he's proving to be up to the task so far. Fowler will enter the weekend in a share of second place with Emiliano Grillo.

Rickie Fowler cruised to a 4-under-par 33-34=67 during the opening round of The Barclays.

Fowler looked comfortable on the tee box, gaining 1.18 strokes off-the-tee, to put himself in position to attack all day. That is exactly what he did, landing 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.51 strokes approaching-the-green. It was rather stress-free thanks to the great tee-to-green play, but his flat stick didn't help the cause other than a 10'9" birdie at the par-4 sixth and a 28'3" birdie bomb at the par-3 14th hole. The lone blemish of the round came at the par-4 ninth where he whiffed on a 4'3" par-saving attempt. Fowler only converted four par breakers but made them count with three birdies and an eagle. If his flat stick heats up then he'll become a serious contender as the week progresses.

Rickie Fowler crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 6-under 134, currently T12 on the leaderboard, up 10 spots on the day.

At No. 8 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Fowler is the top-ranked player at Sedgefield CC and is making his tourney debut. He added the event after a disappointing Rio Olympics where he finished T37 (of 59 players) on even-par 284, 16 shots adrift of gold-medalist Justin Rose. The 27-year-old also is searching for much-needed Ryder Cup points, entering the week 12th in the standings. The top 8 in points after next week's The Barclays are automatic qualifiers. Fowler opened with bogey-free 67 and tacked on a four-birdie one-bogey 67 in R2. Thru 36 holes, he's currently T7 in greens in regulation but T92 in putts per GIR (1.839) and 82nd in SG: Putting (-0.196).

World No. 8 Rickie Fowler torched the Olympic Golf Course in Rio with a 7-under-par 29-35=64 during round three of the Men's Olympic Golf Competition, reaching 3-under 210 on the week to vault up 34 spots on the live leaderboard to T16.

Fowler was clicking from the get-go, striping all 13 fairways and missing just four greens. He carded the first sub-30 of the week with a 6-under 29 on the front that included a 73-yard hole out for eagle at the par-4 ninth. Fowler has really struggled to figure out the greens over the first two rounds, so he decided to skip the putting all together, holing just one putt from outside 5'6" before making the turn. The American found trouble on his approach shots at the par-3 14th and par-4 15th to swallow a pair of bogeys, but offset them with three more circles on the back nine. This goes in the books as his low round for 2016 and his lowest score worldwide since an opening 63 at the 2013 Australian PGA Championship.
Aug 13 - 11:39 AM

World No. 8 Rickie Fowler is one of four American golfers in the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and is scheduled out on Thursday at 10:58 a.m. BRT (9:58 a.m. ET) with England's Justin Rose and Jhonattan Vegas of Venezuela.

When the Olympic Golf Rankings were finalized on July 11, 2016, the 27-year-old slotted in at No. 3, behind Sweden's Henrik Stenson and top-ranked Bubba Watson. He's joined at the 31st Olympiad by fellow American's Watson, Patrick Reed and Matt Kuchar, the only country with the maximum allowable (four) under the qualification process. Fowler checks in at 14/1 to win gold and arrives off four consecutive made cuts -- ending a streak of three straight MCs -- but just one of those cashes reached inside the top 30 (T10, WGC-Bridgestone). He's a three-time TOUR winner, twice in 2015, but none this season in 19 starts. The Florida resident's season best of seven top 10s is P2 (WMPO) 27 weeks ago. He did win in Abu Dhabi two week's prior to that, his second European Tour title (2015 Scottish Open).

Rickie Fowler cashed in on Baltusrol's two closing par 5s and moved into the top 10 at the 98th PGA Championship after completing a 2-under-par 35-33=68 with an eagle-3.

After signing for 15 pars and a bogey at No. 3 over his first 16 holes, the American finally shook off the frustration by playing the last two holes in 3-under to finish at 4-under 136. That's five off the clubhouse lead held by compatriot Jimmy Walker and T8. Fowler holed from 12'1" to snap the sequence of pars with a birdie at 17 and hit his second to inside 7ft at the last before rolling in the putt to card his second straight 68. After missed cuts at the Masters and U.S. Open along with T46 at the Open Championship, he's finally in position to make his mark in one of this year's majors.
Jul 29 - 6:32 PM

Rickie Fowler steadied a 2-under-par 35-33=68 during the first round of the 98th PGA Championship, three off the early leader Jimmy Walker.

Fowler wasn't particularly accurate off the tee today, missing eight (of 14) fairways but he still managed 14 greens in regulation. Like the game plan suggests for Baltusrol Golf Club's Lower Course, Fowler opened on the back nine and took care of all his scoring needs before reaching the more difficult front nine. After a bogey at the opening par-4 10th hole, he rebounded with birdies from 6-to-8 feet at the par-4 11th and par-4 13th holes. After that, he dialed in from long distance with a 23'9" birdie bomb at the par-4 14th. Fowler would scribble eight pars and one bogey, with the blemish coming at the par-3 fourth hole after missing a 5'11" attempt at saving par. Fowler entered the week with five career top 10s in majors, but hasn't found one since the 2014 PGA Championship. Currently T7 on the live leaderboard, Fowler is off and running this week in Springfield, New Jersey.
Jul 28 - 1:37 PM

Rickie Fowler contests his seventh PGA Championship and kicks off at 7:40 a.m. ET on Thursday (No. 10 tee) with four-time major winner Ernie Els and two-time major winner Zach Johnson.

The 27-year-old is 5-for-6 at the PGA with T3 in 2014 (Valhalla) his only top-25 finish. That T3 was his fourth top 5 in the the four majors that year, becoming the first player to accomplish that since Tiger Woods in 2005. In seven major starts since, he's missed three cuts and finished inside the top 30 only once, a T12 at last year's Masters. Fowler, who will be representing the USA in the Olympics in two weeks, arrives with just one top 10 (T10, WGC-Bridgestone) in his last six events. He missed the cut at the Masters and the U.S. Open, and posted a T46 at The Open in his last start (69-72-76-73). The Oklahoma State product's season best (18 events) is a playoff loss at the WMPO back in February.
