Rickie Fowler the Professional golfer took some time out of his busy practice schedule for Houston Open of 2018 to help a family of Houston to rebuild their home. Houston was damaged by the Hurricane Harvey and Fowler helped those who lost their houses in the hurricane.
Golf’s ‘Boy Wonder’ Rickie Fowler has not had the best of starts to his 2012 OGA Tour campaign. The only time, perhaps that he was found swinging the golf club was when he was seen on television driving at some stray oranges with his Cobra driver. Having had a stellar collegiate golfing career and having been the number one ranked amateur in the world for about 36 weeks between the summer of 2007 and 2008, Fowler has not been seen performing anywhere near his best, or as people say at the level he can perform considering his potential.
He was even the Big 12 Player of the Year in 2008, the same year in which he finished tied for fourth position in the NCAA Championships. He put together such powerful displays that he was even awarded the Phil Mickelson Award, which is given out to the top freshman in golf in the United States of America. Rickie Fowler also became the first freshman in the history of the Ben Hogan Award to be given the prize, which is recognized as an award given to the top collegiate golfer in the country.
But the question that arises here is what has happened to such a promising young player when his contemporaries like Rory McIlroy are ruling the world of golf from the top of the OWGR rankings? Pessimists will say that he was the victim of bad marketing from his agents and advisors when they made him attend more television commercials that golfing events, which undoubtedly raises the question regarding the credibility of agents in sports.
But we can also contradict it by asking what happens to the spirit to success in players like Rickie Fowler in the face of agent demands? This is perhaps one answer that we will never have an answer to.
