Rickie Fowler At Two Of The Lead In Houston Open First Round

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.

With an excessive amount of juicy storylines lined up for the Masters of next week already, Fowler’s hunt for his first major title has been forgotten somewhat. But if he is willing to right the ship during this week, the chances of his mixing again is very high.

He said “I think today we did a nice job of getting off to a good start and at least structuring confidence for the rest of the week as well as going into the next week.”

As of now four players are ahead of Fowler in the Houston tour and PGA Tour rookie Sam Ryder is also ahead of him. Ryder is also ahead of Fowler with his impressive performance.

At seven under are Lucas Glover and Kevin Tway who finished their first rounds on Thursday
