Rickie Fowler turned in a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Open Championship but finished in a tie for second, two strokes behind Rory McIlroy.
Fowler played in the final pairing with the eventual winner, and did everything he could to chase the Ulsterman down. The American picked up an early birdie at the par-4 second hole, and then added birdies at the par-5 10th, par-3 15th, par-5 16th and par-5 18th to finish at 15-under 273. He's turning into quite the magician at the majors, sharing second at the U.S. Open last month and cracking the top five at the Masters back in April. This will also go a long way towards locking up a spot on Tom Watson's Ryder Cup team, as he ranked seventh before the week began and this was a double-point event. If any lesson has been learned, it is not to count out Fowler at Valhalla in the PGA Championship next month. Jul 20 - 1:41 PM

Rickie Fowler conjured up a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the final round of The Open Championship and trails only Rory McIlroy at 10-under 206.

Fowler was in the zone for most of his round at Royal Liverpool, picking up seven birdies to just one bogey over his first 13 holes and briefly joining McIlroy in the lead at 12-under. The king of the flat bill couldn't keep it going, as he handed back bogeys on the par-4 14th, par-5 16th and par-4 17th before rebounding for a birdie at the 18th. Three of his four bogeys were direct results of poor tees shots that required lay ups on par 4s and chipping out sideways on a par 5. He will need something special in the final round if he is to track down Rory McIlroy.

Rickie Fowler added a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of The Open Championship to touch 6-under 138 at the midpoint, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

It's all come together for the American. For the second straight day, Fowler converted five birdies against two bogeys. He's played the par 5s in bogey-free 5-under. Overall, he's split 17 (of 28) fairways and hit 27 greens in regulation. We have to expect more sterling form on the weekend.

Rickie Fowler carded a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

Gamers were holding their collective breath today since he's coming off a T8 in Scotland that piggybacked a distant T2 at the U.S. Open. You can exhale now and smile. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation at Royal Liverpool today. Fowler buried five birdies against two bogeys before coming to rest two strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Rickie Fowler will get introduced to Royal Liverpool this week at the 143rd Open Championship.

Fowler is building his game around major championships, and it shows in the results. His last five majors have yielded four top 20s, three of those being top 10s, and the latest two both landing inside the top 5. Fowler finished T8 in last week's warm-up event at the Scottish Open. Everything is coming together nicely just in time for the 25-year old, and gamers should take a hard look this week.

Rickie Fowler posted a 2-over-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the U.S. Open to share second place with Erik Compton at 1-under 279.

Fowler would have only had a shot at winning the tournament if Martin Kaymer decided that was OK. Kaymer did not oblige, posting a 1-under in the finale to secure an eight-stroke win. Fowler continues to impress on the game's biggest stage, despite being a bit inconsistent in the regular events. He tied for fifth in the Masters back in April ahead of his solid week at Pinehurst No. 2. He is now exempt into the 2015 Masters and U.S. Open by virtue of his play in the majors this season.
Jun 15 - 8:05 PM

Rickie Fowler scorched Pinehurst No. 2 for a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the U.S. Open to assume the clubhouse lead at 3-under 207.

Fowler posted the first sub-par round on Saturday at just after 6 p.m. ET. He did so by bagging five birdies and dropping just two bogeys, splitting only six of 14 fairways and landing just half of the GIR. The putter was the key to his round, needing just 24 swipes with the flat stick to make his way around the course. His only PGA TOUR win came in Charlotte, NC at Quail Hollow back in 2012, so perhaps there are some synergies at work for the man who sports the flat bill in The Tar Heel state.
Jun 14 - 6:03 PM

Rickie Fowler stumbled to a 10-over-par 41-39=80 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Before you throw something at your monitor or drop your mobile device in acid, consider that Fowler relayed that he's dealing with "flu-like symptoms." He split seven (of 14) fairways, but landed only six greens in regulation. His scorecard resembles the gunk you get when ... never mind. He erased two birdies with six bogeys and two triples, including a snowman at the 11th hole, his second of the round.
May 22 - 2:11 PM

Rickie Fowler struggled for much of the week at the Wells Fargo Championship, but the 2012 champion crafted a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the finale.

Three of his birdies fell on Quail Hollow's front nine, with the other two coming on the back. Three of those birdies were from outside 13 feet, with a 20'11" effort on the par-4 third the longest. He concludes the week at 2-under 286 and well outside of contention.
May 4 - 1:35 PM

Rickie Fowler posted a rather calm 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Masters for his first top-10 finish in the historic event.

After a birdie at the par-4 first, Fowler suffered a three-putt bogey from close range at the par-5 second. Par would generally be the order of the day the rest of the way, with bogeys at 10 and 11 and a birdie at the 14th the only thing breaking the monotony. He's never missed a cut at Augusta National Golf Club, but this marked the first time he sniffed the top 25. He's earned a spot to next year's Masters since he finished inside the top 12.
Apr 13 - 6:34 PM

Rickie Fowler lit up Augusta National Golf Club for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Masters to join Miguel Angel Jiménez in the clubhouse lead at 3-under 213.

His brilliant round featured six birdies to just one bogey, coming at the difficult par-3 fourth hole. Fowler trails the real-time lead of Bubba Watson by four strokes at the time of his posting. The greens are growing firmer and faster by the minute, so even if Fowler isn't in the lead at day's end, he stands an excellent chance of at least gaining more ground. He will try and claim his second PGA TOUR victory, and first major, in Sunday's finale.
Apr 12 - 3:47 PM

Rickie Fowler submitted a 1-under-par 36-35=71 for his opening round of the Masters.

While 3-for-3 at the season's first major, Fowler has yet to crack a top 25. He took solo sixth last week in Houston, so gamers are no doubt pleased at today's carryover. He hung up the red number despite hitting only eight greens in regulation. However, aside from bogeys at Nos. 5 and 6, he avoided trouble. The highlight of the walk came in the form of a chip-in from well of the green at the par-3 fourth. He also rolled in a birdie -- his last of three -- from just off the putting surface at the par-3 16th.
Apr 10 - 2:52 PM

Rickie Fowler settled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open.

Fowler's lap around the Golf Club of Houston wasn't short on drama, as he mixed five birdies and four bogeys across nine pars. He finishes the week at 9-under 279 and safely inside the top 10. His only other top 10 of the season was his third-place finish in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, meaning this is his best finish in a stroke-play event this season. He now turns his full attention towards the Masters.
Apr 6 - 3:29 PM

Rickie Fowler fired a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open, improving to 8-under 208 through 54 holes.

Fowler picked up four birdies and settled for 14 pars on his lap around the Golf Club of Houston. The highlight was a 28'8" bomb on the par-4 third hole. Everything was working, as he missed just three fairways, landed 14 GIR and gained over two strokes with the flat stick. With 18 holes to go before he begins the Masters, it looks like he is all systems go.
Apr 5 - 2:22 PM

Rickie Fowler returns to the Golf Club of Houston for his third Shell Houston Open.

Fowler already has his eyes on Augusta, getting some practice rounds in before flying to Houston on Tuesday afternoon, as he alerted his Twitter followers on Monday. Fowler has made both his previous cuts at the Shell Houston Open before fading on the weekend. It may be deja vu all over again with Rickie's mind clearly on next week's big event.
