The scenario in golf has undergone a massive change right from the moment when Tiger Woods rose up to regain his number 1 position in the world golf rankings at Augusta National. And it is Rickie Fowler who has been experiencing the worst aftermath. The gone Monday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he had tried his best to hold tiger back but he lost all his chances after he landed up with a triple bogey. This mistake of Rickie Fowler’s is being magnified by critics who say that he is not utilizing his full potential needed to be a winner on the PGA Tours.
Expectations had soared up high for good reasons. Rickie Fowler stunned everybody at the 2010 Ryder Cup with his storming shots thanks to Corey Pavin. From then on he is being seen at almost every Ryder cup and it was almost taken for granted that he was going to do well. For the time being, he did live up to those hopes. His victory at the Wells Fargo Championship last May was a treat for his fans because he played awesomely against the deep fields. Then at the Players Championship, he became the runner up. Things turned soar from 2012 Ryder cup. He could not make it to the top -20 and remained that way for the rest of the season.
Rickie fowler is currently ranked 126th in the world golf rankings which is unlikely for a guy who made such a flashy debut. A bit of investigation can bring out the possibilities behind his poor performance. It is perhaps the loose iron shots which are responsible for the loss of points. Nevertheless, Bay Hill still confides on Rickie and is confident that he still stands the chance to stand in a line with Woods.
He gave the world of a golf a new style statement, something that has shocked, dazzled and bamboozled golf fans around the world, but American youngster Rickie Fowler has no intentions of carrying his fashion trend forward and will be unveiling a new style statement at the upcoming US Masters at Augusta National next month. Cobra – Puma recently unveiled the new Masters themed headgear that the 22 year old American will don when he tees off at the famous circuit, looking to improve on his result at the event from last year.
The design of the cap is monocline and it features the famed gold and green colors that are traditionally associated with the Augusta Masters and the new design of the cap will also pay its very own tribute to the style of the American. Rickie Fowler, who has been hailed by many as the United States of America’s answer to Rory McIlroy, the world’s number one golfer at this moment, is yet to produce the performance that drew people to make the comparison.
But still, people consider him young enough and talented enough to make his mark on the sport for years to come and who knows, maybe the US Masters teeing off at the Augusta National next month might see the rise of a new force in the world of golf who will be able to keep the flag of the country flying against the barrage of decent golfers who have made the journey from across the pond to take the golfing stage by storm.
Rickie Fowler, currently ranked at 32 in the world debuted at the Masters in 2011 finishing with a T-38 before improving to T-27 in last year’s event and will be hoping to improve on that further when he returns to the course.
2012 had been his year, Rickie Fowler could not agree more. It had taken off with the PGA tour in the month of May at the Faro Championship where he emerged victorious against the very impressive current world number 1 Rory McIlroy. Although Fowler is still behind Rory if compared with the number of wins that he has had but it can be seen that he is catching up quite fast. And he is not in a hurry at all. Currently he has been ranked world number 31 whereas Rory is way up at number 1 position according to Official World Golf Ranking.
In the last season Fowler has had his advancements with the FedEx Cup playoffs by qualifying for his first ever Tour Championship with much pressure. But now he is at ease after three-four rounds in the Tour and his confidence levels show that Rickie Fowler has improved upon his skills so much from the previous time. Although Celtic Manor in Wales marked the beginning of his bright career when he shot in four birdies that gave birth to high hopes about his winning at the U.S. Ryder Cup but that did not go as planned.
Next up he got smitten with his injury (sacroiliac joint inflammation) just because he had a slight change in his golf posture. The injury still hurts Rickie Fowler but he just does not bother himself thinking quite about it because he loves to play the rough side of the otherwise stodgy game. He even said that he still would love to go to mountain biking which had been his passion since childhood. This has reflected upon his gaming skill which has given golf a new dimension and he setting up a totally new trend for the years to come.
