Rickie Fowler spun a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship for a 54-hole aggregate of 4-under 206, up five places on the leaderboard.
Fowler was T4 after 54 holes in last year's Playoffs finale (three back), eventually settling for solo eighth following a 1-over 71 in the final round. He'll enter championship Sunday T3, in the penultimate pairing with Paul Casey, and four back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. On Saturday, Fowler bobbed and weaved in a sloppy first half, overshadowing birdies at the par-4 third and seventh (from 21'10"), respectively, with bogeys at Nos. 1, 5 and 9 after missing each green in regulation. After the break, the 26-year-old went blemish-free, circling birdies at 11 (from 36'4"), 12, 15 and 18, the latter a walk-off from 14'8" to vault into contention. His 67 was low round of the day in the field of 28. Each of Fowler's three career TOUR titles have been come-from-behind, including two Playoffs events ago at the Deutche Bank. Sep 26 - 4:35 PM

Rickie Fowler is 1-under-par 69-70=139 through two rounds of the TOUR Championship.

Despite Henrik Stenson's clinic on Thursday, East Lake Golf Club is providing the kind of test for which it's known. Fowler has six birdies through 36 holes, but he's also squared three bogeys and a double. Today's set of three birdies featured a round-long conversion from just inside 24 feet at the par-4 fourth hole, but he also connected from 17'10", 14'2" and five yards from the fringe for par at Nos. 5, 10 and 12, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he sat one stroke off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead, but that deficit will grow once the leaders post.

Rickie Fowler controls his own FedExCup destiny ahead of this week's TOUR Championship.

Fowler flies into Atlanta ranked third in the FEC standings. As a member of the top five spots, a win would earn him enough points to be crowned the 2015 FedExCup championship regardless of where any other golfers finish. In two trips to East Lake Golf Club, Fowler has a T23 and an eighth place on his resume. Arriving on the heels of a win and T4 in his last two starts, the Oklahoma State Cowboy should be deemed a serious threat at this week's competition.
Sep 21 - 10:53 PM

Rickie Fowler authored a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of the BMW Championship to conclude his sixth appearance at 14-under 270, good for a three-way tie for fourth and maintaining his third-place ranking in the FedExCup standings.

Fowler matched his personal best at the BMW chasing his T4 in last year's edition with this week's performance that featured four rounds in the 60s (69-66-66-69). He was one of only two in the field (Jason Day) to boast this accomplishment over four days at Conway Farms. The 26-year-old began the finale at 12-under (T5) and eight adrift of Day. He opened with a commercial six straight pars before circling back-to-backs at Nos. 7 and 8 to turn 2-under. Following the break, he exchanged birdie at the 12th (from 15'5") with a lone bogey at the 13th after missing the green in regulation, one of seven on the round. For the week, Fowler ranked just T19 in birdies with 19, but T2 in bogeys with only five. He bagged his seventh top 10 of the season on 20 events, and his fourth in his last six starts, including his win at the Deutsche Bank Championship in the second leg of the Playoffs.
Sep 20 - 8:10 PM

Rickie Fowler feasted on Conway Farms with a five-under-par 33-33=66 to grab the early 54-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 201.

A 5-under 66 would have hardly made a blip on the radar yesterday, but Fowler walked off the 18th green today with 4.927 strokes gained on the field. Even with preferred lies in place, the field struggled with changing wind directions and tough pin placements. The Oklahoma State Cowboy can thank his flat stick after rolling in four birdies from outside of 11 feet, including a round long 18'10" at the par-4 fifth. Fowler still has a long way to go come Sunday as he tries to catch Jason Day, who is currently coasting out ahead of the pack.
Sep 19 - 4:37 PM

Rickie Fowler hung a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the finale of the Deutsche Bank Championship to put the wraps on his sixth appearance at 15-under 269, good for a one-shot victory to lift him to third in the FedExCup standings.

After opening in trip-67s, including bogey-free loops in rounds one and three, Fowler began his final frame at 12-under, one back of playing partner and eventual runner-up, Henrik Stenson. The 26-year-old saved par from the hazard at the first, his 26th consecutive hole without a bogey, but lost a shot when the Swede birdied. Fowler tied the lead with eagle from 33'9" at the par-5 second, and then gave both shots back with dropped shots at three and four after missing both greens in regulation. He added a circle from two feet at the par-5 seventh to turn 2-under. Fowler went 2-under on his inward half, penciling birdies at Nos. 11 and 14, the latter a 38-foot beauty that ended up being the difference-maker after Stenson double-bogeyed the par-3 16th. The win is Fowler's first top-20 finish at TPC Boston and his third TOUR title in 145 starts as a pro. He came from three back with eight to play to notch his second win of the season and third worldwide since May.
Sep 7 - 6:25 PM

Rickie Fowler conjured up a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-35=67 in today's third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the three-quarter pole at 12-under 201, one shot back of leader Henrik Stenson.

Fowler began the day in a three-way tie for third at 8-under and four adrift. After opening in 67 (bogey-free) and 67, he stayed steady on that number by circling four on his outward half at Nos. 2, 4, 6 and 8 and then carding 10 consecutive pars over his final 10 holes. Fowler's first two conversions came from between 10 and 12 feet and the last rolled in from 24'10" at the long par-3 eighth, which measured 213 yards on the card and was playing as the second hardest hole on the course. Thru nine holes, the 26-year-old hadn't found a fairway, yet hadn't missed a GIR. On the 10th, he finally found the fairway, and then missed the green. In total, he landed just four (of 14) fairways and hit only 12 GIR, registering his first negative number in strokes gained: tee-to-green (-0.123) on the week. However, thru 54 holes, he ranks third in strokes gained: putting, with a cumulative 6.083, and second in strokes gained: total with a three-day total of 11.055.
Sep 6 - 6:24 PM

Rickie Fowler doubled-up on 67s by carding a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the halfway point at 8-under 134, four back of the leader in the clubhouse Charley Hoffman.

Fowler has 38 career top-10 finishes in 145 starts as a pro, but none here at TPC Boston. His best showing was T23 in last year's edition, his only finish inside the top 40 in five previous appearances. Fowler chased his opening, bogey-free 67, with a matching score today, offsetting a double bogey-5 at the 11th and bogeys at two and nine, with eight birdies, including three straight on Nos. 6-8. His split included four from outside 10 feet, including an 11-footer at the last for the walk-off 3. On the three holes where he dropped shots, two came the result of three-putts, including a three-jack from 16'3" at the par-3 11th after missing the green in regulation, one of four missed greens on the day. The 26-year-old striped 13 (of 14) fairways after finding 11 yesterday, currently fifth in that stat with play still in progress.
Sep 5 - 3:51 PM

Rickie Fowler recorded a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing two strokes off the overnight lead.

With a missed cut at last week's Barclays, Fowler gave up seven spots in the FedExCup standings where he's currently 22nd. He flipped the switch at TPC Boston today, signing one of only three blemish-free cards (Ian Poulter, Hunter Mahan). The 26-year-old piped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to four birdies, three of which ranging 15-17 feet. Fowler passed his greatest test to salvage par with a conversion from 14'4" at the par-3 third. Through 18 holes, he's sixth in the field in strokes gained: putting at 2.931.
Sep 4 - 7:53 PM

Rickie Fowler enjoyed a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational to post 4-under 276, good for a share of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Fowler and Jordan Spieth are the targets in the clubhouse, but they might not finish inside the top 10. Regardless, Fowler will head to the PGA Championship with good vibes after going 6-for-6 in scrambling at Firestone today. He circled three birdies, including a pair from 10-13 feet, but he may feel better about salvaged pars from 10'4" and 19'3" at Nos. 3 and 15, respectively. The 26-year-old tied for 58th place at Whistling Straits in his PGA Championship debut in 2010, so that experience will be invaluable as he marries it with his recent world-beating form in this week's edition.
Aug 9 - 4:57 PM

Rickie Fowler pushed forward at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with an even-par 35-35=70 in today's third round.

It's called Moving Day for all of the reasons of which you're already aware, but Fowler failed to capitalize. He hit 11 greens in regulation and connected only three times for birdies, the longest rolling 25 feet at the par-4 third hole. He also gave back three shots, first with a double bogey at the par-4 ninth where he didn't find the putting until his fourth stroke, and then two-putted from just 65 inches. He also squared a 4 at the par-3 15th where he flared his tee ball right of right. At 1-under 209, Fowler is four strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead, but he'll need a really low one to contend for the Gary Player Cup. However, as he sits T16 on the leaderboard (at last check) in a field of considerable depth and on a golf course that doesn't relent often, it's already apparent that the 26-year-old is more likely to win next week instead of tomorrow.
Aug 8 - 4:50 PM

Rickie Fowler carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Fresh off a solo second at the Quicken Loans National, the 26-year-old arrived in Akron purring. He hit the ground running at Firestone with a birdie-3 at the 10th hole where he began his walk. Fowler added a birdie from 24'1" at the par-3 15th. After turning bogey-free, he opened his inward side par-birdie, and then chipped in for birdie from the rough nine yards away at the par-4 third. He'd drop his only shot of the day at the par-4 fourth before parring in. All in all, it was a great day given he missed eight greens in regulation. Fowler has a couple of top 10 in the books at Firestone, including a T2 in 2011 -- it's his best finish in a WGC -- so he knows what it takes to contend.
Aug 6 - 2:27 PM

Rickie Fowler rallied late for a 2-under-par 37-32=69 in the finale of the Quicken Loans National to snare runner-up honors at 15-under 269, three shots adrift of champion Troy Merritt.

Although not netting him a win this time, like at THE PLAYERS in May, Fowler finished in similar fashion, circling birdies on three of his last five holes, including a walk-off 3 at the last from just outside 23 feet for his eighth career runner-up finish. The 26-year-old played the 18th tied with David Lingmerth, in at 14-under, prior to the dramatics. Fowler began the day at 13-under (solo third) and just one back of Merritt and Kevin Chappell. Playing in the penultimate pairing, he penciled seven birdies on the card, but similar to yesterday, he squared too many bogeys to win. In total, he bagged 24 birdies on the week, first in the tournament in that category, and an ace, but also squared 11 bogeys, including five today, T58 in that stat. His previous-best finish at the Quicken Loans (three starts) was T13 in 2011. He's projected to jump to 16th in the FedExCup standings ahead of this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
Aug 2 - 7:34 PM

Rickie Fowler settled for a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to enter Sunday's finale at 13-under 200, one stroke adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Troy Merritt and Kevin Chappell.

Fowler overshadowed three bogeys with six birdies on his loop but dropped one place on the leaderboard. After playing in the final pairing on Saturday, he'll peg it with Jason Bohn (12-under) in the penultimate pairing on Sunday. Fowler began the day at 10-under (T2) and just one back. He circled par breakers on Nos. 2, 4 (from a whopping 70'9") and 6 to offset bogey at the par-4 third. He didn't birdie either of the par 5s on the front and made the turn in 2-under. His bogey on 11 erased birdie on 10 and his bogey on 17 silenced birdie on 16, managing a two-putt birdie in-between at the par-5 15th. Fowler missed four greens in regulation and saved par only once. The 26-year-old will be looking to add his second PGA TOUR title of the season (THE PLAYERS) and third overall in 141 career starts as a pro.
Aug 1 - 6:20 PM

Rickie Fowler walked off a 6-under-par 35-30=65 in today's second round of the Quicken Loans National with three birdies to steal sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 132.

The closing ace on Thursday was more dramatic, but he gets to claim both conclusions. Today at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, Fowler hit 15 greens in regulation and totaled seven birdies to hide a sloppy 6 at the par-5 eighth hole. All of his longest conversions yielded circles, measuring 37'7", 12'7" and 27'1" at the 13th, 16th and 18th holes, respectively. Both of his strokes-gained stats sat north of 2.300 for the round at last check, and he ranked inside the top 20 in both, proving that he's firing on all cylinders on the largely unknown track in Gainesville, Virginia. The 26-year-old will enter the weekend in pursuit of his third title worldwide in his last seven starts.
