Playing out of the third group of the morning, World No. 7 Rickie Fowler fired a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to conclude his 10th appearance on 11-over 291, up 28 places on the live leaderboard to T33, good for the low round of the week thus far, eclipsing 66 (x3), and tying the U.S. Open course record at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler finished T20, while Tommy Fleetwood had the low round with 63.
The 29-year-old rebounded from a career-tying-worst, 14-over 84 in R3 (in 721st career round) with a six-birdie, one-bogey effort on Day 4 paired with Phil Mickelson (69). He also shot 84/R4 (12-over) at the 2012 Memorial. The Oklahoma State product's previous worst lap in a major (thru 34 majors) was 11-over 81 in R1 of the 2015 U.S. Open (Chambers Bay/CUT). After opening with 73-69-84, he began T61 on 16-over, nine short of the overnight top 10. Fowler hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, averaging 1.5 putts with 27 total putts. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (errant tee shot led to forced layup), missing a par-saver from 6'9", smothered by circles at 5, 7-9, 13 and 18, all from inside of 12 feet. Fowler's run of five straight top 25s in majors, dating to T11 at the 2017 Masters, is in jeopardy. He finished solo 2nd at the Masters in the season's first major. Jun 17 - 12:41 PM

Rickie Fowler feasted in round two of the 118th U.S. Open Championship, twirling a 1-under-par 34-35=69 to reach 2-over 142 on the week, placing him in a share of ninth place on the live leaderboard.

Fowler striped 13 fairways today on his way toward 13 greens in regulation. From there, it was an up-and-down day with the flat stick. He opened the round with par-savers from 6'11" and 7'5" at 1 and 2 before knocking in a 15'3" birdie at the third. That was some of the good but he would also miss seven chances from the 6-to-12 foot range. Making his 10th appearance at this event, this is just his third time positioning himself inside the top 30 after two rounds. That says a lot about his weekend performance since he owns three top 10s at the event. If some of those mid-range putts start to fall then Fowler should be right in the mix come Sunday afternoon.

World No. 7 Rickie Fowler has gotten engaged to his girlfriend, Allison Stokke.

Fowler shared the news to his fans via Instagram, "Today is National Best Friend Day so I wanted to lock mine down...I WON!!" Still looking to win the big one (a major championship), Fowler certainly won big off the course today. The couple was hanging out with World No. 1, Justin Thomas, in Southampton today. They are relaxing ahead of next week's U.S. Open Championship which takes place there on Long Island. Fowler will be making his 34th appearance in a major championship next week. He already has four podium finishes on his resume (including a runner-up finish at this year's Masters) but is still searching for his first victory in a major.

World No. 7 Rickie Fowler crafted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to conclude on 11-under 277, up 14 places to T7 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler finished T8, four back of a 3-man playoff, and ranked No. 1 for the week in All-Around.

This was the 29-year-old's ninth Memorial, fourth top 25 and third top 10, joining a T2 last year and solo 2nd on debut in 2010. He improves to 10-for-13 on the season with eight top 25s, two straight, and four top 10s, first since solo 2nd at the Masters four starts ago. For the week, the Jupiter, Florida, resident recorded rounds of 72-69-68-68 and tallied one eagle and 19 birdies against 10 bogeys. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, he outpaced one bogey with five birdies, two from between 15 and 26 feet with 29 total putts.
Jun 3 - 2:24 PM

World No. 6 Rickie Fowler, a pre-tourney 18/1 outright, contests his sixth Fort Worth Invitational, first since a missed cut in 2014, and heads out in Round 1 at 7:55 am CT with Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau.

The Oklahoma State product played the event five straight years between 2010-14 but hasn't returned since the MC (by 14 shots) after rounds of 80-75. Overall, he's 4-for-5 with two top 25s and one top 10, a T5 in 2012, with a scoring average on the par-70 layout of 69.89. The 29-year-old is 8-for-11 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s, all top 4s, highlighed by a pair of runner-up finishes at the OHL and the Masters. He checks in off a MC (by two) at THE PLAYERS, his second MC in his last three appearances after a P1 in 2015. Fowler's most recent (of four) TOUR titles is the 2017 Honda, 16 months, 1 week and 29 starts ago. He's led/co-led three times this season after any round, including 36-hole co-leader at the OHL, and 36-hole co-leader and 54-hole leader at the Phoenix Open. Fowler is 0-for-8 when leading/co-leading after 36 holes and 1-for-6 from the three-quarter pole.

Rickie Fowler heads to THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass this week looking for his second victory at the tournament in the past four seasons.

Fowler won this event, sometimes considered the unofficial fifth major, back in 2015 by edging Sergio Garcia and Kevin Kisner in a playoff. He was also a runner-up in the 2012 season at TPC Sawgrass, as well as finishing second in the Masters this season, so the big stage obviously doesn't faze the fan favorite. He'll be a popular DFS selection this weekend despite a huge price tag, mainly because of his consistent results. He has made the cut in five straight outings, and nine of his 11 events this season. That includes seven finishes of 21st or better in 2018.

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.
Apr 7 - 6:06 PM

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.
