World No. 7 Rickie Fowler signed for a 3-under-par 35-35=70 after the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions and a 72-hole total of 14-under 278, good for a three-way T4, 10 adrift of overnight leader and champion Dustin Johnson, who shot a week-low 65.
The 29-year-old was making his third appearance with progressively better finishes of T6/2013 and solo 5th in 2016. It's his second top 10 of the season in two starts and second top 5, joining solo 2nd at the OHL Classic. After opening in 69-71-68, the Oklahoma State product began T4, five back of Johnson. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he striped 14 (of 15) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.365 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.295 tee-to-green. The California native squared a lone bogey-5 at one, offset by four circles at 2, 3, 14 and 18, two from between 10 and 19 feet. He posted 1.714 putts per GIR and 0.883 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Fowler, who recorded 10 consecutive pars mid-round, missed four scoring tries from inside of 11 feet but did knock in two par-savers from between seven and nine feet. Jan 7 - 10:52 PM

World No. 7 Rickie Fowler authored a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions to post 11-under 208, up four places to T4, five shy of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson.

The 29-year-old hung up just the second blemish-free lap of the day at Kapalua Resort, joining Jon Rahm's 66, who he'll be paired with in the penultimate twosome on Sunday. He hit 13 (of 15) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 1.836 strokes off-the-tee and 2.298 around-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 3.737. The California native circled five at holes 8 (from 8'5"), 9 and 14-16, brushing in his final par breaker from the fringe 12'2" away. He missed three scoring tries from inside of 10 feet, including a 4-footer at the par-5 fifth, recording 1.750 putts per GIR and -0.360 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Rickie Fowler eased his way toward a 2-under-par 37-34=71 during round two of the Sentry Tournament of Champions, keeping his name inside the top 10 heading into the weekend on 6-under 140.

Early in the round, Fowler couldn't match up his speed and line on the putting surfaces that are running just 9 feet on the stimpmeter. He missed a par-saver from inside four feet and then missed his first two birdie attempts from inside nine feet. Fowler would later splash in four putts from outside 12 feet, three of them to save par or bogey. The Oklahoma State product didn't have his best stuff today but only dropped four spots on the leaderboard. We haven't seen his best golf yet, making him a candidate to make a weekend push toward the title.
Jan 5 - 10:06 PM

Rickie Fowler recovered from a mid-round hiccup to style a 4-under-par 33-36=69 during the opening day of the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Fowler was on cruise control today, outside of a three-hole stretch that saw him drop three shots. The most notable blemish came at the par-4 13th where he pulled his approach shot into the high grass, leading to a double bogey. Dressed in a casual Hawaiian shirt, Fowler drained a 21'10" eagle splash on the closing, par-5 18th. He already had five birdies on his card so scoring was not the problem. Despite the errors on 11 and 13, Fowler's dinner will taste just fine tonight as he walks off the course with a share of fourth place. With a pair of finishes of T6 or better here at Kapalua, Fowler will have plenty of good course history to vibe off as the week progresses.
Jan 4 - 9:52 PM

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, World No. 9 Rickie Fowler, a pre-tourney 8/1 outright, painted a course-record bogey-free 11-under-par 28-33=61 in the final round of the Hero World Challenge to wrap on 18-under 270, up four spots on the day and good for a four-shot win over overnight leader Charley Hoffman (72).

After opening in 67-70-72, the Oklahoma State product began T5 on 7-under, seven back of Hoffman. He took command with an eight-birdie first half, including seven straight out of the blocks, while Hoffman, who was also the second-round leader, labored to an even-par 36 (two birdies, two bogeys). The 28-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Dec. 13th, ticked three more at 11, 13 and 15, while Hoffman came home with nine straight pars. This was his sixth HWC, sixth top-6 finish and third straight top 3 after 3rd in 2016 and T3 last year. While this doesn't count as an official TOUR win, the California native, who arrived off solo 2nd at the OHL Classic as a 36-hole co-leader, will collect world-ranking points. He clipped the previous course-record-holder Justin Rose by one, who also shared the tournament record with Tiger Woods (2014/R2, Sherwood CC).

World No. 9 Rickie Fowler is at Albany in The Bahamas for his sixth Hero World Challenge and is paired in Round 1 on Thursday with Kevin Kisner (12:27 pm ET).

The 28-year-old has five top-6 finishes in five tries, including solo 3rd in 2016 and T3 last year, both at Albany. He arrives off solo 2nd three weeks ago at the OHL Classic as a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, where he was a second-round co-leader, dropping to 0-for-7 in his career as 36-hole leader/co-leader. It was the Jupiter, Florida, resident's 12th career runner-up finish in 197 career events (192 pro), second in his last three starts, dating to T2 at the BMW Championship. In his last 11 starts worldwide, he's posted 10 top 25s and seven top 10s, and went 3-0-1 at the Presidents Cup. Fowler's worst finish in this span was a disappointing T26 (of 30) at the TOUR Championship.

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.

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.
