Not every golfer is the staid and conservative player.
There is no better example than Rickie Fowler. He is considered a rock star and not without reason. If you see his style of playing you will know that he does not follow the traditional path when it comes to golfing. Hence, you cannot title him as a kid who has grown up and learned to play the game in a country club environment. Having come from a semi rural region in California, he has had lots of fun racing dirt bikes from five years of age as well as discovering golf as a game in Murrieta which is his home town.
Fowler is titled as the number eleven player in the world rankings and that is no minor achievement under his belt. He has several fast cars in his garage today, though his love for dirt bikes still remains. He even sponsors a racing team of Porsche in US. He is planning to try racing himself after a point in time when golf feels too hard for him.
Rickie Fowler is in four out of top-5 major ends in the year 2014 along with a win at Players Championship 2015 signal that he is all set for the next step in golf – fetching a major title.
The twenty-seven year old man from the United States, believed among the best golfers who have not won a major, takes a great confidence from his success in the last 2 seasons into Thursday’s first round of 80th Masters.
Fowler told that previous year was undoubtedly a step in the prefect direction for him, after good ends in the year 2014 in majors. He feel like the perfect storm, combine 2014 and 2015 together, compeers winning a major, that is the way he look at that.
Rickie offered a landmark campaign in 2014, sharing 5th at Masters, 2nd at US Open and the Open Championship as well as 3rd at PGA Championship. Just 3 other golfers have achieved top-5 ends in all 4 majors in the very same year –Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods, as well as defending US Open and Masters champ Jordan Spieth previous year.
