Fowler patiently waiting his turn
Question of the Day
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Rickie Fowler isn’t letting the fact that he hasn’t won on the PGA Tour consume him.
He knows it’ll come someday.
“Everything kind of has to fall into place,” Fowler said Thursday after shooting a 6-under 66 in the first round of the Wells Fargo Championship. “It’s tough to put 72 holes of great golf together. The last couple weeks I’ve been hitting the ball well and putting myself in position.
“I wouldn’t be surprised if a win is just around the corner.”
Maybe even this week.
Fowler’s bogey-free round included an eagle on No. 7 and left him one shot behind leaders Ryan Moore, Stewart Cink and Webb Simpson at the Quail Hollow Club, the same course where Rory McIlroy earned his PGA Tour win two years ago.
Fowler has three goals this season _ to get that first win, make it to the Tour championship and earn a spot on the Ryder Cup team.
He said he has a renewed vigor after watching his best friend on tour, Bubba Watson, won the Masters.
“Just kind of getting to see kind of the moments from outside the ropes and see what was going on coming down the stretch, I definitely took a lot away from it,” Fowler said. “(It was) kind of more the feeling that I want to be in that position. Instead of Bubba winning I want to win. Maybe he’ll let me win one soon.”
Watson isn’t playing this week and also announced Thursday he’s pulling out of the Players Championship.
That’s not all that surprising around here.
