Rickie Fowler shot a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 14-under 270, and then lost on the fourth hole of sudden death to Hideki Matsuyama, dropping his playoff record to 2-2.
After opening in 65-68-70, Fowler was in the final threesome T2 with Matsuyama and three adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee. He had come-from-behind in each of his three TOUR wins and was looking to add his fourth title in his 152nd pro start -- and his fifth worldwide victory in the last nine months. Fowler missed birdie at the par-4 first (from 5'8") but connected from 3'11" at the par-5 third to join a four-way T1. He took the top spot with a pitch-in birdie-3 at the 10th and had a two-shot lead heading to the short par-4 17th after birdie-4s at 13 and 15. The 27-year-old drove the green (with driver) but it never stopped, going over the green into the water to square his first bogey in 22 holes. Back at the 17th for the fourth hole of sudden death, he hit less-than driver this time, but he found the water left and it was over, settling for his ninth career runner-up and second at the WMPO (2010).

Rickie Fowler signed for a 1-under-par 33-37=70 after today's third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a 54-hole aggregate of 10-under 203, joint second with Hideki Matsuyama.

Fowler played with Danny Lee and overnight leader James Hahn in the final threesome on Saturday. He began just one adrift, but four birdies and three bogeys later, he fell three in arrears to 54-hole leader Lee, who shot 67. The three-time TOUR winner was in the fight thru 10 holes, erasing bogey at five (tee shot OB), with birdies at Nos. 1, 3 and 6 from between six and 17 feet. He squared back-to-backs on 11 and 12, the former a three-putt from 47'10" before his last par breaker from 2'11" at the par-5 13th. Fowler finished-up with a disappointing five straight pars, particularly at the par-5 15th, where he had recorded eagle-3 and birdie-4 in the first two rounds.
Feb 6 - 7:34 PM

A trio lead after 18 holes with 65s, including Rickie Fowler, who chased with 3-under-par 34-34=68 on day two of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to post 9-under 133, down one spot on the day and into a two-way T2 with Danny Lee.

TPC Scottsdale's previous Friday attendance record (123K) was shattered with 160,415 packing the grounds. Fowler backed-up his pre-tourney claim of loving the atmosphere opening in 65-68 to trail 36-hole leader James Hahn by one. He sleepwalked thru his first 12 holes on Friday, circling just one (two-putt) birdie at the par-5 third and 11 pars. But, as he's been known to do (see THE PLAYERS), he awoke to add birdies at 13, 15 and 18. The walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th, from 3'10", was a bounce back from a sloppy three-putt from 26'5" at the drivable par-4 17th, his only dropped shot on the round.
Feb 5 - 8:23 PM

Rickie Fowler smoothed an opening 6-under-par 33-32=65 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, good for the early clubhouse lead with Shane Lowry. UPDATE: With play suspended at 6:11 p.m. MT due to darkness, Fowler co-leads in the clubhouse with Lowry and Hideki Matsuyama.

Fowler chased his third international victory in Abu Dhabi with a 12 time-zone jaunt to La Jolla and a missed cut (by one) after 73-71. The World No. 4 is the highest-ranked player in the 132-man field this week and he played like it. He needed just 24 putts to tour the Stadium Course at TPC Scottsdale and it began early with birdie from 16'1" at the par-4 10th (his first hole). Fowler added circles at 12 (36'8") and a two-putt birdie at the par-5 13th before canning a 27-footer for eagle-3 at 15. In-between, he dropped a 10-footer for a sand save at the par-4 14th. The 27-year-old rounded off his first half in bogey-birdie-bogey to turn 4-under. He played his inward nine in blemish-free 2-under carding birdies at the par-5 third and a walk-off 3 at the ninth from 12'6".
Feb 4 - 4:44 PM

Rickie Fowler looks to rebound after a missed cut, turning his attention to TPC Scottdale's Stadium Course for this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The superstar won as recently as two weeks ago (Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship) but returned to the States and immediately missed the cut at last week's Farmers Insurance Open. You can hardly blame him, considering the jet lag and media responsibilities that kept him busy off the course. Now Fowler will take on TPC Scottsdale where he is 5-for-7, lifetime, with just two top 25s. After a runner-up finish in 2010 and a T13 in 2011, his course history is going the wrong direction with four straight finishes outside the top 25, including a pair of missed cuts. This combination of factors makes Fowler a high-risk, high-reward option for gamers this week.

Rickie Fowler displayed skill, flair and nerve in completing a round of 3-under 34-35=69 for a 16-under 272 total that earned him victory in the 2016 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

He had forged himself a two-shot advantage over the field heading into the final round and wasted little time adding to it with birdies on the opening two holes. He had class players chasing him but was in control until a double bogey-5 at the 7th, but he responded with a stunning eagle-3 at the very next hole. On the back nine his playing partner Thomas Pieters exerted pressure by moving to within one shot, but Fowler stood strong, carding eight consecutive - and safe - pars. Ahead of him Rory Mclroy dramatically holed for eagle on 18 to join Henrik Stenson in the clubhouse on 14-under, one back of Fowler as he faced a tricky chip from the fringe on the penultimate hole. Fowler stood up to the ball and the pressure, executing a shot of great touch and holing it for birdie. The drama was not quite done. Pieters very nearly holed for eagle on the last but his birdie required Fowler to hole a knee-knocker to close the deal. He didn't miss for a one shot victory over Pieters in 2nd.

Rickie Fowler returned early on Sunday to complete a stunning third round 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, for a 54-hole 13-under 203 total, which gives him a two shot advantage over the field.

The Californian native was a winner on the European Tour at last year's Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open and is on track to claim a second after completing his third tour of the Abu Dhabi GC. He made four birdies in 11 holes Saturday and returned to add three more at 13, 16 and 18 on Sunday morning. His putt on the 18th lipped out for eagle. Having started the day in a five way tie on 10-under he was the only man to make significant headway after the resumption and has a two shot lead over Joost Luiten, with Rory McIlroy heading a group of five one shot further back. Statswise little stands out for Fowler, except for the one stat which matters: scoring, and he's dropped just one shot in his last 50 holes.

Rickie Fowler rallied to a 6-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to post 20-under 272, 10 swings back of champion Jordan Spieth.

Fowler's solo fifth on Maui this week was a slight improvement from T6 in his 2013 debut but he secured it in grand fashion with birdies on five of his final six holes. Up to that point, he had mustered just two birdies -- each from less than 24 inches -- on the par-5 fifth and ninth, respectively, outpacing a three-putt bogey-4 at the 11th. The 27-year-old began the day in a four-way T6 on rounds of 69-67-69, and reached the final verdict after 12 (of 15) fairways and 17 greens in regulation. His run to the finish line saw three more conversions from mere inches, but did bang in a 45-footer at the par-4 13th to kick-start the furious rally.
Jan 10 - 11:29 PM

Rickie Fowler tacked on a 4-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions for a 54-hole total of 14-under 205.

Fowler began Moving Day in joint sixth on 10-under after opening in 69-67, six in arrears to 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He didn't move anywhere as far as the leaderboard goes, ending day three in a four-way T6, but he fell 10 shots back of Spieth who shot 65. The 27-year-old began Saturday's play on a sour note with bogey-5 at the first after missing the green, but erased it with birdies at 3 and 9, both from inside four feet. He also added a chip-in eagle at the par-5 fifth from 30 yards short and left of the green to turn 3-under. After the break, he three-putted from 65'10" for bogey at 13, before back-to-back birdies at 14 and 15, each from inside four feet. Fowler whiffed two birdies putts on 16 and 18 from 4'1" and 5'7", respectively, contributing to a dismal -2.258 in strokes gained: putting and a 1.800 putts per GIR on the day.
Jan 9 - 9:15 PM

Rickie Fowler spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions to post 10-under 136, up two places on the live leaderboard.

Fowler converted six birdies on 16 greens in regulation on Friday, but will look back on his 9'0" par putt on the difficult par-4 17th that kept his forward momentum intact. Playing six groups ahead of the final pairing, he circled par breakers on Nos. 5, 6, 9, 11, 14 and 16, rolling in a long of 17'5" at the par-4 sixth. The 27-year-old has recorded positive numbers in both strokes gained: categories in each of his first two loops, and slots in at T5 with play still in progress. He had a six-foot birdie putt on the par-5 last, but missed.
Jan 8 - 9:05 PM

Rickie Fowler finished strong on his way to a 4-under-par 35-34=69 in the first round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Fowler gave owners a scare when they might have logged on and saw him 1-over-par through four holes. He evened the score on the par-5 fifth, where he was nine inches away from eagle, settling for a birdie instead. He circled birdies on the three remaining par 5s as well as the par-4 14th hole. Fowler may have made a fashion statement with a pair of joggers and high tops but it was his great par-5 scoring that gamers will remember.
Jan 7 - 11:29 PM

Rickie Fowler will take on The Plantation Course at Kapalua for the second time during this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Fowler hushed his critics with a win at THE PLAYERS and added another trophy to his case at the Deutsche Bank Championship. The Oklahoma State Cowboy posted a pair of top 25s over the fall to arrive at the calendar turn ranked 75th in the FedExCup standings. With 16 podium finishes in 154 career starts, Fowler is always a top-tier option for gamers to consider.

Jan 6 - 5:50 PM

Rickie Fowler shot 13-under-par 68-72-68-67=275 at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

He was positioned T15 at last check, so it's not as impressive as finishing one stroke outside the two-man playoff a year ago, but Fowler will be proud of how he battled back from the second round in the most challenging conditions of the week. In today's final trot around Sheshan International, he went 2-for-2 in scrambling and converted an eagle (at the par-5 second hole) and three birdies. He played his last 23 holes in bogey-free 6-under. So, while he didn't contend for the Old Tom Morris Cup this time around, Fowler remains a force on the biggest stages. As a result, he's as reliable as any investment in our world.

Rickie Fowler holed it from everywhere en route to a 6-under-par 35-30=65 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The 26-year-old did most of his heavy lifting on the way in today. He opened with 1-over 72 on Thursday and traded a birdie with a bogey on his opening nine today. That birdie try traveled 26 feet, seven inches, so it was no gimme, but it was a harbinger. And binge he did. Fowler buried an eagle and four birdies to post 5-under 137. His eagle landed as a result of a 79-footer at the par-5 13th hole. (You can view it at the link below.) It's the longest conversion via a putt since Justin Thomas connected from 87'10" in the final round of the Quicken Loans National in early August. Included in Fowler's quartet of birdies were runs of 26'2", 13'3" and 12'5" at Nos. 12, 15 and 18, respectively. He also salvaged par from 20'4" at the par-5 16th. When darkness fell, his strokes gained: putting for the round read 5.493. He led the field in the 36-hole aggregate at 6.487. He's also climbed back to within five strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse tri-leaders.

Rickie Fowler settled for a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Committed to playing more this season, Fowler is back at TPC Summerlin for the first time since a T22 in his rookie year of 2010. Unfortunately, he wiped away three birdies with two bogeys and a double. He totaled only 11 greens in regulation and owned a strokes gained: tee-to-green clip of minus-3.518 at last check. In four of his six seasons on the PGA TOUR, he's made no more than 24 starts. He topped out at a career-low 21 in 2014-15 despite getting all the way to the TOUR Championship.
