Rickie Fowler has been on the radar as a young competitive golfer for a while now. Although he struggled in the beginning, he never let that bring his positive attitude down. Working with Puma, Fowler created an image for himself that now many young golfers try to emulate. Cool, collected and wearing bright orange on the golf course.
2015 was a big year for Mr. Fowler. He won the Players Championship, the Deutsche Bank Championship and the Scottish Open. He is currently ranked Number 5 in the official world golf ranking. “This year I was just able to put myself in contention more often; I may not have been playing as well but when I got in those situations I wasn’t scared of it, I felt really confident. I was out there to get the job done.”
Now that he has gotten those wins he is feeling confident that he can compete on the highest level, creating a challenge for Rory and Jordan.
Is Rickie still with Alexis Randock? Who the hell cares?! I think we should gear our attention towards the future of this competitive player and not on his relationship goals. As he enters the WGC-HSBC Champions tournament this Thursday, we will see if he can stay on the right track! His fans will be loyal either way.
Now here’s our prediction for 2016:
Win two, if not three, majors.
Be in the top 5 for five + tournaments.
Get a green jacket!
Make it to the 2016 Olympic games, bringing back golf as a sport, in Rio this summer!
