Rickie Fowler orchestrated a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's final round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to wrap his seventh appearance on even-par 280, up 12 spots to T10 with play still in progress.
The 27-year-old opened and closed with sub-par rounds but in-between, threw up 73-72. He's right on the cusp of his third straight top 10 at Firestone CC and first top 10 on TOUR since T4 at the Wells Fargo in May. The Oklahoma State product exchanged bogeys at 3 and 5 with birdies at 1 and 7 (from 28'8") to turn even, but came home in bogey-free 3-under, circling the 10th, 14th, and 18th, each from inside of 15 feet. For the week, he carded 15 birdies against 13 bogeys and a double. Jul 3 - 4:48 PM

Rickie Fowler styled a 2-under-par 32-36=68 during the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, finding himself four off the leader William McGirt.

Fowler struggled on the tee box today, splitting just five fairways, losing 1.99 strokes off-the-tee. The rest of the game was in tip-top shape as he recovered to hit nine greens in regulation and made plenty of keys shots on and around the greens. First he holed out from the rough (26'11") for birdie at the par-4 fourth hole. He added a 23'4" birdie roll at the par-4 sixth hole and splashed in another from the fringe (22'3") at the par-4 13th hole to save par. Fowler entered the week ranked inside the top 55 in all strokes gained categories which is crucial on days like today when one part of the game completely lets him down.

Arriving on the heels of three straight missed cuts, Rickie Fowler righted the ship with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the weekend at 6-under 136.

Fowler entered the week ranked first in bogey avoidance and you could see why today. He opened on the back nine and saved par from 7'10" (twice) and 36'11" in his first four holes. His lone bogey came at the par-4 14th hole where he could only advance his ball 40 feet out of the rough after an errant tee shot. It was his first bogey of the week. Fowler gained 3.501 strokes during his round today, and 87 percent of those came on his approach play (17 greens in regulation). Fowler is currently two off the pace set by Vijay Singh and in great position entering the weekend.

Rickie Fowler looks to right the ship as he preps for Oakmont Country Club this week at the 116th U.S. Open Championship.

Fowler is a statistical dream entering the week, but a pair of missed cuts leading into the week leaves his form in question. On the season he ranks top 30 in strokes gained off-the-tree, approach-the-green, and around-the-green. Slightly lower, he ranks 47th in strokes gained putting, as well. This all-around game makes him a serious contender this week at Oakmont CC which test all facets of your game. With eight top 15s on his major championship resume, there is no reason to exclude Fowler from your fantasy rosters this week.

Rickie Fowler turns his attention toward Muirfield Village Golf Club ahead of this week's Memorial.

Fowler arrives on the heels of a missed cut at THE PLAYERS and has also missed the cut in his last two trips to Muirfield Village. That should not deter savvy gamers from investing, because he's never been a golfer that needs to pre-heat the oven before baking a top-10 finish. The course history is not all bad, either, as he posted a runner-up finish in his 2010 debut. Fowler currently falls inside the top 35 in both strokes gained putting and strokes gained tee-to-green, so there is no reason to expect another missed cut for Fowler as he preps for the upcoming gauntlet of majors.
Jun 1 - 9:27 PM

Defending champ Rickie Fowler is in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, for his seventh appearance in THE PLAYERS.

Fowler won last year's edition after erasing a three-stroke deficit with 5-under 67, capped by a record-setting birdie-eagle-birdie-birdie finish. He and Kevin Kisner tied after a three-hole aggregate playoff (1-under) -- while Sergio Garcia (par-par-par) was eliminated -- and then Fowler ousted Kisner with birdie on the first hole of sudden death. He entered No. 13 in the Official World Golf Ranking, arriving off a Rd. of 16 loss at Match Play (T9) and a missed cut at the Zurich. This week, he checks-in at No. 5 in OWGR after a subsequent third title at the 2015 Deutsche Bank and nine other top 10s. The 27-year-old was the 54-hole leader last week in Charlotte but closed in 2-over 74 for T4, dropping him to 0-for-3 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.
May 11 - 12:59 PM

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler back-pedaled to a 2-over-par 39-35=74 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship for a 72-hole total of 7-under 281, down three into a four-way T4, two shy of a two-man playoff involving James Hahn and Roberto Castro.

Fowler has won three times on TOUR in 164 career starts but each has been come-from-behind. This was his third 54-hole lead/co-lead, first since the 2011 Quicken Loans National, and he's now 0-for-3, relinquishing a one-stroke lead with a patchy final frame. The 27-year-old managed just six (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, posting -1.775 strokes gained: tee-to-green. He lost the lead from the get-go with a failed up-and-down at the first, missing his par putt of 3'8", and retreated another on the fourth with another failed scramble. Fowler circled the fifth from 4'0" but hit his second from the fairway on the par-5 seventh OB right leading to double bogey-7 and he was pretty much done. He heads to THE PLAYERS where he's the defender after prevailing in sudden death following a three-hole aggregate playoff.
May 8 - 6:09 PM

Past champ Rickie Fowler awoke mid-round to fire a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 9-under 207, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and tying James Hahn for the low round of the day. UPDATE: With play completed, Fowler leads by one over Roberto Castro.

Fowler began Moving Day on 5-under (T5) after 71-68, three back of 36-hole leader Andrew Loupe. He was sleepwalking on even-par thru seven holes, beginning with seven straight pars, but connected three straight birdies on holes 8-10, highlighted by a 16'6" roll on the par-4 ninth. The 2012 playoff winner squared the 11th and 13th on failed scrambles, missing par putts from 5'6" and 6'8", respectively, but once again, circled three straight, this time on 14-16, including his longest conversion of the day from 27'2" at the par-4 16th. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 4.094 strokes gained: tee-to-green at last check.
May 7 - 6:04 PM

Past champ Rickie Fowler smoothed a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the Wells Fargo Championship to post 5-under 139, up 26 places on the live leaderboard to T4, three back of 36-hole leader Andrew Loupe.

The 2012 playoff winner opened his sixth Wells Fargo with an up-and-down 1-under 71 on 12 greens in regulation, circling four against one bogey and a double bogey-5. He hit 12 GIR in R2 as well and improved to 10 (of 14) fairways and 4.710 strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. The 27-year-old penciled five, four from inside of seven feet, including three straight on holes 6-8 from less than four feet. His longest conversion was 18'7" on the par-5 15th but missed scoring chances of 3'7" at the fifth and from 6'0" at the 16th. Fowler went 5-for-6 in scrambling, highlighted by a 13'3" one-putt par on the par-4 18th.
May 6 - 6:26 PM

Rickie Fowler torched TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 during day one of this week's Zurich Classic.

Fowler arrived fresh off his #SB2K16 week-long vacation in the Bahamas but showed no signs of rust. The lone weakness in his game was off the tee today, missing 6 (of 14) fairways. Fowler didn't find it too difficult to play out of the longer grass, though, as he still managed 15 greens in regulation. Despite missing his last two cuts at the Zurich Classic, Fowler still arrived with a scoring average of 70.25 at TPC Louisiana. He's signed for at least one round of par or worse in 4-of-5 Zurich trips. If he can avoid that one poor round this week, he should be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday night.
Apr 28 - 8:56 PM

World No. 5 Rickie Fowler posted rounds of 80-73 at the 80th Masters for a 36-hole total of 9-over 153, missing the cut by three strokes.

This was Fowler's first missed cut at Augusta National in his sixth appearance. His previous worst was T38 in both 2013 and 2011 (debut). This visit began as a pre-tourney 14/1 outright and he kicked off with a career-worst 80 (at ANGC), previously 78 in R4/2013, and his two-day totals show: 6 birdies (two on his final two holes), 8 bogeys, 2 doubles and 1 triple. Not long ago, the 27-year-old had four top-five finishes in the 2014 majors, including T2s -- in back-to-back starts -- at the U.S. Open (Pinehurst No. 2) and the Open Championship at Royal Liverpool GC. His 2015 major appearances began promisingly with a T12 at the Masters, but fizzled out with MC (U.S. Open), and a pair of T30s at the Open and PGA Championships. To summarize, his last five major appearances now read: T12-CUT-T30-T30-CUT.
Apr 9 - 7:19 AM

Rickie Fowler stalled out to a 2-under-par 32-38=70 in today's final round of the Shell Houston Open and a four-day total of 9-under 270, good for a three-way tie for 10th place.

This is Fowler's fifth top 10 of the season on nine starts and fourth straight in stroke-play events -- he finished a disappointing T38 at last week's Match Play exited in the Group Stage with a 0-1-2 record. The 27-year-old also notches his second top 10 at the Shell (6th/2014) in his fifth appearance. He began the finale four adrift on 7-under (T10) and raced into contention with a bogey-free four-birdie 32, but came home in 2-over 38, erasing birdie on the par-5 14th with bogeys on 11, 14 and 18. Fowler led the field in greens in regulation at 79.17 percent (57/72) but finished 57th in strokes gained: putting (-1.630), including a dismal -1.194 in the final round.
Apr 3 - 9:25 PM

Rickie Fowler followed a 3-under-par 69 on day one with a 2-under 35-35=70 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open to reach the halfway point on 5-under 139, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T16, five adrift of clubhouse leader Charley Hoffman.

Fowler began off No. 10 tee in R2 and circled back-to-back birdie-3s on 11 and 12 from 11'4" and 8'2", respectively. He bookended those with missed birdie putts on 10 (from 9'6") and on the par-5 13th from 7'6", and gave a shot back with a failed scramble on the par-4 17th to turn 1-under. The 27-year-old added two more '3s' on the first and third -- both from inside of nine feet -- before missing another scoring chance from 9'1" on the par-5 fourth. He ate a double bogey-6 on the fifth (water off the tee), but fought back with back-to-back birdies on 7 and 8, the former from 16'4", before a failed scramble for a walk-off bogey-4 on the ninth. At last check, Fowler is second in the field thru 36 holes with 11 birdies, but is T23 in bogeys (2) and T127 in doubles with one in each round.
Apr 1 - 6:08 PM

Rickie Fowler exchanged blows with Scott Piercy during the second round of the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play and they walked off the course with a halved match.

The highly-picked Fowler opened his week with a loss to Jason Dufner, and did gamers no favors today. The Oklahoma State product rolled in a 5'4" birdie on the par-4 third hole to take a short-live lead. It was his only circle on the front nine and they made the turn with Piercy 1-up. Fowler warmed up the flat stick at the turn, rolling in three straight birdies to gain back two holes, taking a 1-up lead. Two of the three birdie rolls came from outside 16 feet. The match looked to be over as Piercy found trouble on the par-5 16th hole, but he pulled off a miraculous up-and-down to remain just 1-down. Fowler found trouble on the 17th, arriving at the 18th tee box all square. Piercy landed his approach 16 feet closer on the last, but both settled for pars. Fowler will take on Byeong-Hun An on Friday and will need a win to have any chance of advancing. Piercy is now 0-0-2 and will take on Jason Dufner in the third round.
Mar 24 - 8:35 PM

Fifth-seeded Rickie Fowler does battle in his sixth consecutive WGC-Dell Match Play and plays out of Group 5 with Byeong-Hun An, Scott Piercy and Jason Dufner.

Fowler won his group last year with a 3-0 record as the 13-seed but was eliminated by Louis Oosthuizen on Saturday in the quarterfinals. The year prior (old format), he finished third, winning the consolation match as the 14-seed, and not suffering his first loss until Rd. 5. The 27-year-old is 6-for-7 on the season with four top 10s, including a playoff loss at the WM Phoenix Open. He chased that with a T6/Honda and T8 in his latest start at the WGC-Cadillac. Fowler's most recent match-play action shows 1-3-0 at the 2015 Presidents Cup and 0-2-3 at the 2014 Ryder Cup.
