With the Olympic Games about to begin and golf been included in the Games this year, there is much excitement among the teams that would be participating.
Among the players who are part of the US Team is Rickie Fowler. He would be the oldest golfer from the American team to be part of the opening ceremony of the Olympics. We have seen him in action when he played the Memorial Tournament held in Dublin at the Muirfoeld Village Golf Club. It was held in June this year. There are others too, which would be representing the States and would be part of the Summer Olympics. Many of the fellow players would be at TPC River Highlands like Kuchar, Reed and Watson. Rickie Fowler is to be the fourth member of the country team. With the rosters out of the golf standings one can figure out the positions of the different players in the opening ceremony in the Olympics.
Rickie is definitely excited about the prospect, stating that he wanted the opportunity and it has worked out for his schedule. As the other members would be a way to complete their other commitments he would be the only golfer at the opening ceremony which he feels is a great opportunity. He would be keeping a practice itinerary as the tournament in Brazil comes from. He also looks forward to seeing the other athletes and games commence and the greatness that unfolds on the arenas of the Olympics. He acknowledges that he would be missing out the Travelers Championship, which might make it difficult for him to qualify for the Ryder Cup. The 27 year old player is 12th in the world rankings after his performance at Baltusrol where the PGA Tournament was recently concluded. He looks forward to increasing his merits in the game after his Games appearance.
