The defending champions of Deutsche Bank Championship are mostly tied up with a lot many things and hence they are rarely seen showing up for media day.
However, Rickie Fowler did make an effort by taking the short flight after the PGA Championship on Sunday which took place in Springfield, N.J. at Baltusrol Golf Club.
The champion had achieved his 3rd and the latest victory at TPC Boston during the PGA Tour on the Labor Day. Thereafter, he delighted the media by bringing champagne and also raised his glass thanking them for the stories that they wrote. Fowler said that it was a big achievement for him. He was delighted to receive his first victory in the playoffs. Fowler answered the questions raised by the media and also hit balls with the best target which included an Adirondack chair, a hamburger and the Deutsche Bank Championship Cup. There were many targets which were blown over through the wind, and Fowler managed to hit most of them. He was the first champion who attended the media day after Olin Browne, who achieved victory in the event held in 2005.
The 27 year old has captured the Scottish Open and the Players Championship last year. This happened after he won for the first time in 5 years on the PGA Tour. Fowler has scored top 40 finishes once in the last 4 events and there was a tie for 10th in July for the Bridgestone Invitational. He has undoubtedly given his best shots all the time. This is probably one of the prime reasons for his popularity today. It is said that Fowler would skip the travelers Championship in Cromwell. However, he will be joining Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar and Patrick Reed as the representation of U.S. in return to the Olympics of Golf. The player is all set and cannot wait to be there.
