In the Bag 2013 with Rickie Fowler

He is arguably the most exciting and photogenic golfer of the younger generation of players, a founding member of the Golf Boys band and the US’s youngest ever Ryder Cup star.

Oklahoma State University graduate Rickie Fowler has already achieved much in a relatively short career and it seems certain that there is much more to come from this talented golfer.

 

Almost entirely self-taught on the golfing ranges of his home town Murrieta in California, Fowler was a star amateur golfer and a keen exponent of Street Golf as well as being one of the most talented young PGA tour professionals.

 

Let’s learn a little about him and what Rickie Fowler has in the bag in 2013.

Career Highlights:

While he was an amateur player at Oklahoma State University, Fowler was one of the hottest young prospects in American  golf and a star performer in Collegiate golf, holding the Amateur World Number 1 for 36 weeks between 2007 and 2008.

 

While his first win as a professional at the OneAsia Tour’s Kolon Korean Open was undoubtedly a watershed moment in 2011, his first PGA Tour win at the Wells Fargo Championship in May 2012 was undeniably a highlight of his career so far.

 

 

Yet perhaps his biggest achievement to date was his selection in the 2010 Ryder Cup for the United States, in which Fowler was the youngest ever US Ryder Cup Player of all time. His performance in the final day singles, when he won the final four holes of the match with a birdie at each hole, to tie his game with Edoardo Molinari after being four down after 12 holes was an immense achievement.

 

Career Lowpoints:

Given his young age and relative inexperience, there hasn’t really been a major low point for Fowler during his career so far. Perhaps one disappointing aspect of his career is his Major’s performance, with a best finish of 5th so far in the 2011 British Open. However, Fowler will almost certainly improve on that over the coming years, with many tipping him as future Major winner.

 

The other disappointment for Fowler may be his lack of tournament wins. In addition to two first place finishes, Fowler has finished second in tournaments on five separate occasions and in future he will want to turn these closely fought contests, into wins.

 

 

What does the future hold for Rickie Fowler?

Fowler’s future looks pretty much to be one of increasing maturity with his game and pushing up towards the top ten golfers in the world. He’ll need to win more tournaments than he has done and certainly he’ll be looking to contend in Major championships, but this self-taught golfer has already shown he has the raw materials in place to enjoy a long and successful career in the game.

 

However let’s hope his singing career as a member of the Golf Boys with Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan and Ben Crane doesn’t have quite such a spectacular impact!
