After making a good start Rickie Fowler the 2017-’18 campaign has gone quiet for some time. But recently, during Houston Open he has shown signs of recapturing his form of the early season. The most promising and positive one came on Thursday in Humble, Texas, at the Golf Club of Houston. Here Fowler carded a six-under 66, this shot put him within the lead of two strokes in the first round of the Houston Open, which was delayed because of overnight rain.
Fowler said “I did a nice job tee-to-green; really it was great to make some putts and also made some longer ones. On the course there are ample softer greens, and it was really a fun to play there. You could certainly play pretty aggressively even in case you miss the fairway,” Fowler is ranked second in the field in strokes gained/putting. He made amazing three birdie putts from 30 feet, along with carding four other birdies and only one bogey on the round.
Rickie Fowler seems confident that this year’s edition of the Presidents Cup would have a different feel compared to past editions.
Unlike the Ryder Cup that has always been more followed by the public, the Presidents Cup has not enjoyed as much public acceptance. This time the biennial event at the Big Apple is set to surge with the presence of New York golf fans.
“The Presidents Cup has a little bit more of a laid-back feel, but I think this one will have more of a Ryder Cup feel. It’ll be a little different feeling being in New York. There’s going to be plenty of pressure on players of both sides,” the World number seven said.
The American team still has the advantage though the International team would be seeking to end a six-event losing streak. The Cup sees 12-man American side battling against the International side, filled mainly with European stars. The American sidehas always dominated since the event began in 1994. When they play at home, the American side does not lose. (more…)
In the past few months, golfer Rickie Fowler has had to play a good friend’s role instead of a champion, while watching the good buddies Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth winning the last two majors.
However, now his time has come. In the FedEx Cup, he is ready for his own glory.
Fowler returned to TPC Boston this week, after winning here in the year 2015. Having enjoyed success on this course last time, he strongly believes that he can do some good work this year again on this course.
In a press conference, Flower said, “I definitely think against last week, we are thinking to play, a place where we have not played before; we have only few tournaments here to play, and thus have only a few chances to win here, we have come here with a lot of confidence knowing that, we are going to play well here, therefore, I am confident and relaxed, the way I have been playing all through this year. I am consistent in my performance and doing kind of well in the game all through. You know, nothing struggled. Everything is been solid here. (more…)

The Bay Hill became the place to flaunt the chick clothes recently, many golfers here used their stylish clothes to pay honor to Arnold Palmer.

But, there was one golfer who stood out among all with his sense of style and that was Rickie Fowler.
