Rickie Fowler outscored playing partners Rory McIlroy and Martin Kaymer by nine and eight shots respectively in an opening even-par 36-35=71 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.
Fowler's ability to keep calm and scramble his way out of trouble served him well in tough conditions at Royal County Down on Thursday. He started out with birdies at 10 and 11 and found two more par breakers at 4 and 8 although four bogeys on his card meant he had to settle for a 71. However, that was just two shots off the clubhouse lead and in stark contrast to McIlroy (80) and Kaymer (79), who failed to card a single birdie between them. The key for Fowler was his short game as he went 7-for-11 in scrambling after hitting only seven greens in regulation. May 28 - 10:02 AM

Rickie Fowler will have plenty of happy memories to draw on when he heads to the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Royal County Down.

This may be his tournament debut but Fowler was a star of the United States team that won the 2007 Walker Cup on the fabled Irish links. The American won three of his four matches and on the final day teamed up with Billy Horschel to take down Rory McIlroy and Jonathan Caldwell 2&1. Fowler might have a decent chance of beating tournament host McIlroy again. The Californian scored a brilliant win at THE PLAYERS earlier this month and is a proven performer on links courses with a T2 and a T5 to his name in the last four Open Championships.

With a birdie on the first hole in sudden death, Rickie Fowler emerged with victory at THE PLAYERS for his second PGA TOUR title and first since the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship.

Fowler closed out the tournament going 6-under over his last six holes to sign for a 5-under 36-31=67 and post 12-under 279. He was later matched by Sergio Garcia and then Kevin Kisner to force a first-ever, three-hole aggregate playoff at THE PLAYERS. Fowler and Kisner matched birdie-2s on the 17th to finish the aggregate 1-under, eliminating Garcia (at even par). Fowler would then dispatch Kisner on the first hole of sudden death, rolling in a five-footer for birdie and the title. On his final round, Fowler was 1-over through his first 12 holes with not much going his way, but his fortunes changed with birdies on 13 and 15. In the fairway on the par-5 16th, he nearly rinsed his approach from 239 yards out, landing just a few paces from the water, but it miraculously careened to just 2'5" for an eagle-3. Fowler would complete the dramatic finish with birdie on 17 from 6'10" and again from 16'11" on the last.

Rickie Fowler enjoyed his opening 69 at THE PLAYERS so much that he went out and tossed up another in today's second round.

Fowler submitted respective nines of 34 and 35 today with two birdies on both sides. All 18 of his conversions came from eight-and-a-feet and in. His only blemish occurred at the par-5 16th where he rinsed his second and eventually squared a bogey, but at 6-under 138, the 26-year-old is only two strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 8 - 6:26 PM

Rickie Fowler shot 3-under-par 32-37=69 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

This had the makings of something special today, but he coughed away the opportunity coming home. Fowler sat bogey-free 6-under through 11 holes with six birdies, the longest falling from just outside 31 feet at the iconic, par-3 17th. After blitzing the track, he then two-putted the par-3 third for double bogey and bogeyed the par-5 ninth where he rinsed his tee ball. For the day, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, but one must avoid the crooked numbers at TPC Sawgrass to enjoy success. It's still very early in the tournament and he's only two strokes off the clubhouse lead, so the sky hasn't fallen yet.

Rickie Fowler polished off a perfect record in pool play at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship with a 5-and-4 dusting of Graeme McDowell in today's third round.

Fowler was the first to advance to the round of 16 over 24 hours ago, but he sent a message today with eight birdies in just 15 holes, including a walk-off conversion from 15 feet at the par-4 14th. Both went bogey-free, but G-Mac found only three birdies. The Ulsterman went 0-3 for the week.
May 1 - 7:30 PM

Thanks to defeating Shane Lowry 1-up in today’s second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Rickie Fowler has mathematically advanced to the round of 16.

Fowler led only twice. He took the par-3 second hole with a par and the par-5 18th with birdie. Lowry owned the lead from Nos. 4-13, even reaching 2-up through 12, but couldn’t hang on. Fowler is now 2-0 and cannot lose his group. Nevertheless, he’ll show up on Friday for a third-round match with Graeme McDowell. Lowry (1-1) will wrap up his time at TPC Harding Park with a walk with Harris English.
Apr 30 - 5:55 PM

Rickie Fowler held on to defeat Harris English 1-up in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

It wasn't necessarily a birdiefest, but Fowler needed all six of his to survive. That included a 4 at the 18th hole, which English also birdied. The taller of the Americans held a 1-up advantage twice going out, but they turned all square. Fowler grabbed his first and only lead with a birdie-3 at the 10th hole. He inflated it to 3-up by 12, but English battled, winning 14 and 15. Fowler's birdie-3 at 16 increased the lead to 2-up and applied the pressure. English won 17 with a par but given how well Fowler was striking the ball, he had to think about eagle at the par-5 finisher. Fowler will tangle with Shane Lowry in Thursday's second round. Meanwhile, in his attempt to remain mathematically alive, English will play Graeme McDowell.

Despite a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Rickie Fowler missed the cut on the number.

It takes only one crooked number to lose in a shootout. To wit, Fowler penciled in a 6 at the par-3 17th hole in the opening round. He also bogeyed the par-5 second en route to an even-par 72 (that also included an eagle-3 and two birdies). This puts an end to a consecutive cuts made streak of 17, but he'll start anew with a guaranteed payday at next week's Match Play. Other notables that failed to survived today's cut include: 140--Harris English; Charles Howell III; Zac Blair; Will MacKenzie; Troy Merritt ... 141--Robert Streb; Jamie Donaldson; Bo Van Pelt ... 142--2007 champ Nick Watney; 2010 champ Jason Bohn ... 143--Brendan Steele ... 144--2008 champ Andres Romero; Martin Laird; Marc Warren ... 147--Scott Piercy ... 148--Tony Finau.

Rickie Fowler completed the 79th Masters in 6-under-par 73-72-70-67=282 to establish the new 72-hole clubhouse lead.

No, he won't collect his fifth consecutive top five in a major, and he sat T11 when he walked with with a bogey-5 at the 18th hole at Augusta National today, but Fowler silenced the critics that didn't expect this. He totaled 12 greens in regulation in every round and circled an eagle and 19 birdies. It'll be his sixth straight top 20 in a major and seventh in the last eight. The 26-year-old proved that no matter his form upon arrival that he should not be ruled out of making noise on the biggest stages in golf.
Apr 12 - 4:55 PM

Rickie Fowler blew up for a 5-over-par 39-38=77 in today's third round of the Shell Houston Open.

What's the old adage that past results don't dictate future results? Fowler may want to hang his flat-brim cap on that tonight as it concerns next week's Masters. He splits nine (of 14) fairways but landed only nine greens in regulation today. His only par breaker disappeared for birdie from the fringe five yards away at the par-4 17th. However, Fowler already had three bogeys on the card, so he was merely trying to salvage what he could. Well, that effort failed on the par-4 18th where he rinsed both his tee ball and third shot en route to a triple bogey. For the record, he's 1-under 215 and outside the top 65 (of 71) on the leaderboard.
Apr 4 - 4:59 PM

Rickie Fowler has enjoyed a pair of 3-under-par 69s to open the Shell Houston Open.

The Golf Club of Houston is proving gettable again this morning, but the 0.88-stroke differential between Thursday's waves didn't affect the 26-year-old. He hit 14 greens in regulation in both rounds and has collected nine birdies, four of which in today's trot. All ran at least 10 feet. The longest stretched 18'10" at the par-5 13th hole. Fowler signed his card sitting three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. With the Masters on deck, the spotlight will brighten next week as he goes for his fifth straight top five in a major. If he continues to play like this, it would be reasonable to expect the streak to extend.

Rickie Fowler makes fourth visit to the GC of Houston.

Last year, Fowler arrived at the SHO struggling to find consistency in his game. His subsequent solo-sixth finish catapulted him to a T5 the following week at the Masters. This year, he arrives with just one top 20 in five PGA TOUR starts. With only one win on TOUR in 137 events a win this week seems unlikely, but surely a repeat of 2014 would do.
Apr 1 - 5:03 PM

Rickie Fowler settled for an even-par34-38=72 in the final round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and ends the tournament at even-par 288.

Fowler was 4-under on his round standing on the 16th tee, but finished with a double bogey on 16 and bogeys on 17 and 18 to waste it. Of his six birdies, a 13'1" effort on the par-4 seventh and a 20'2" mid-ranger on the par-5 10th were of note. This was easily the best finish of 2015 for Fowler, as he hadn't cracked the top 40 in any of his first four. He is on the wrong side of the bubble for a top 10 at the time of his posting.
Mar 8 - 5:19 PM

Rickie Fowler lapped Trump National Doral in 4-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Fowler led the field with 16 greens in regulation, but still couldn't avoid a square on his scorecard; he three-putted the par-3 ninth hole from just inside 50 feet. Elsewhere, he rolled in five birdies, including a pair from 10-13 feet and finished six strokes off the pace of overnight leader J.B. Holmes. This is exactly what Fowler needed, too. He hadn't broken par since an opening 69 at the Farmers Insurance Open. But there's still work to be done to end a drought without a top 40. He's 4-for-4 in 2015 with no better than a T41 at The Honda Classic.
