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.

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.

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.
Jul 31 - 5:58 PM

Rickie Fowler punctuated a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National with a hole-in-one at the par-3 ninth hole.

He three-jacked the par-5 eighth hole for bogey, and then laced a 7-iron from 184 yards at the last for the ace. (You can view the shot at the link below.) Overall, Fowler hit 13 greens in regulation and added four birdies, the longest from 12'10" at the par-4 13th. He's four swings adrift of the clubhouse lead. Incidentally, today's 1 is his second in 141 PGA TOUR starts as a pro. The first occurred in the final round of the 2009 Open at Grayhawk Golf Club. He holed his tee ball on the par-3 fifth from 211 yards that day and would eventually lose in a playoff to Troy Matteson. That's the same tournament in which Jamie Lovemark's approach on the first hole in the playoff landed in the water and hopped onto dry land. Lovemark went on to save par on the hole before also getting clipped by Matteson on the next hole.
Jul 30 - 3:23 PM

With birdies on three of his last four holes, Rickie Fowler eked out a one-stroke victory at the Scottish Open.

Boy, does he loves himself the big stage. In a field loaded with some of the best golfers in the game and headed to next week's Open Championship at St. Andrews, Fowler reminded everyone that he's not underrated yet again. He stiffed his second at the par-4 18th for a no-pressure look at birdie. When it fell, and Raphaël Jacquelin didn't hole out for eagle at the last, it secured the American's first victory in a European Tour event. Fowler carded a 4-under-par 35-33=68 at Gullane Golf Club in Eat Lothian today. He posted 12-under 268, one shot better than Jacquelin and Matt Kuchar. With this fresh triumph on a links track, Fowler demands respect in all formats on The Old Course. He tied for 14th in his first appearance at St. Andrews in 2010 and has three top 15s in five appearances in the season's third major.
Jul 12 - 2:20 PM

Rickie Fowler crafted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 on day three of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and is now favorite with the UK bookies to take victory.

At 10-under 200, the American is just two shots behind leader Daniel Brooks and will have a golden chance to give himself the ideal confidence boost for next week's Open Championship at St. Andrews. Five back and T13 after two rounds, Fowler struggled to make the progress he was looking for after playing the first 13 holes in 1-under but a birdie at 14 and an eagle-3 at 16 did the trick and lifted him to T3. The 26-year-old has split just 50% of fairways so far this week but is getting it done via short game. Fowler is 15-for-18 in scrambling after getting up and down six times out of seven today.
Jul 11 - 3:35 PM

Rickie Fowler birdied three of the last four holes in a 4-under-par 34-32=66 on day one of the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

After unsettling missed cuts at Memorial and the U.S. Open, this is a welcome opening lap for the American, who will be bidding to win a first major title in next week's Open at St Andrews. Fowler scrambled well (5-for-5) to keep a bogey off his card and a birdie-2 at the 8th was the only time he deviated from par over the first 14 holes. He then made a move at the finish with birdies at 15, 16 and 18 and signed for his card just three shots behind leader Thorbjorn Olesen. Fowler, who was T8 in this event last year, hit only 8 (of 14) fairways so will want to tidy up his driving.
Jul 9 - 8:47 AM

Rickie Fowler has Ryder Cup rivals Ian Poulter and Jamie Donaldson for company in the first two rounds of this week's Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open.

Fowler was on the losing side at Gleneagles on his last visit to Scotland so will be hoping for better fortunes over the next two weeks at Gullane and St Andrews. The American showed up strongly in this tournament last year when taking a share of eighth spot at Castle Stuart before crossing the border to finish T2 in the Open Championship at Hoylake. Since his brilliant win at THE PLAYERS, the Californian has gone somewhat quiet with a T30 at the Irish Open and missed cuts at both Memorial and the U.S. Open. Perhaps some Scottish air in his nostrils will get him back on track.
Jul 8 - 7:37 AM

Rickie Fowler stumbled to an 11-over-par 43-38=81 in his opening round of the 115th U.S. Open, but he didn't sign his card without almost making history at the par-4 12th hole.

Fowler's experience showcased most of one side of the spectrum of the potential impact of Chambers Bay. He found 12 of the 14 expansive fairways but managed only eight greens in regulation. The only par breaker yielded came at the drivable 12th where his tee ball motored through the center of the green, slowed on a backstop, and then reversed its track directly back toward the hole. Three feet from the cup, it looked like it was going in, but it peeled off at the last moment for a tap-in eagle. (You can view the shot for yourself at the link below.) Elsewhere, he squared six bogeys, two doubles and a triple. Needless to say, his hope to extend his streak of top 20s in majors to seven is seriously in doubt, but he gets 18 more holes to find the magic. It's just that he sits 155th in the field of 156.

Rickie Fowler puts on his game face in preparation of this week's U.S. Open.

Fowler has evolved into a big-game hunter over the past few seasons, and this is certainly one of the biggest stages. In major championships, the Oklahoma State product has rattled off top 20s in seven of his last eight. Fowler's game sets up great for links-style courses, as well, evidenced by a trio of top 15s to his name at the Open Championship.
Jun 16 - 7:59 PM

Rickie Fowler signed for a 5-over-par 35-41=76 following his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and sits at 5-over 218 through 54 holes.

Oh, what a difference two holes make. Fowler started the day just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and opened today's stroll around Royal County Down with a bogey-6 at the first hole. He played his next 15 holes impeccably with a a birdie-2 at No. 7 and a chip-in for eagle at the par-4 16th. Now 2-under and lurking, the American lost his tee ball at the par-4 17th and clunked around until he penciled in an 8. Alas, he post the same number on the par-5 18th and compound matters. Links golf offers few opportunities to let off the gas. Today's cold and windy conditions didn't help. Fowler paid the price. Twice.
