Rickie Fowler needs to do something !!

The coolest guy ever !!

As you know, GolfDigest, ranks every year the 30 nicest guys on the PGA Tour. In the first edition, in 2013, Rickie Fowler finished third and two years ago the California native was ranked fifth when Jordan Spieth took the top honor.

But in 2019, Rickie Fowler heads the GolfDigest survey, edging the US Open champion Gary Woodland and Jordan Spieth respectively. Players, caddies, media members, … and tournament volunteers participated in this voting.

« I’m just trying to treat people the way my parents taught me to. It’s cool to have my peers view me this way. Very cool, very humbling »

Rickie is also, the ideal gender but it’s too late… He‘s married to a wonderful wife.

He’s always very positive and still the coolest guy even when an anonymous pool (may 2015) conducted by Sports Illustrated, PGA Tour pros voted Rickie Fowler (and Ian Poulter) as the most overrated players in golf…. He stayed calm and win The Players ; this victory answsers any questions.

But it’s missing something…

Based on these facts, we all know that something is missing to Rickie Fowler : a major championship. He’s not the only one, for sure.

For example, let’s take the 10 best players in the world who have yet to win a major (Rickie included) :

- Jon Rahm

- Bryson DeChambeau

- Tommy Fleetwood

- Hideki Matsuyama

- Tony Fineau

- Xander Schauffele

- Paul Casey

- Patrick Cantlay

That’s a pretty impressive list ! That proves how it’s difficult to win a major championship. For example, Matt Kuchar has played in 56 majors and didn’t win any…

Even if you produce an A game, you are not sur to win the major ; but you have to try to win and to definitely enter the in the golf history.

He’s s not very far to grab one !!

There will always be gossipers among the crowd, and people love a juicy story. … I’m not even going to give their rumors another thought, and let’s have a look to the figures.

First, to be able to win, you have to be regular. And for several seasons now, Rickie is very regular. As proof, the number of TOP10’s last seasons :

It’s at last 20 TOP10 by season… So therefore, by producing such a good and consistent level of play, he puts his chances on his side.

And in modern golf games, you have to send the ball away. This is the case for Rickie season after season :

As you can see the average distance per season is between 290 and 300 yards, enought to win at this level.

Besides, his precision with this club is more than good :

As you can see, his average “Driving Accuracy” is greater than 55%.

A last, he has a really good iron play. Indeed , season after season, he manages to have very good statistics of “Greens in Regulation” :

Finally, we all know that Rickie Fowler is really good when he has to make a put…

So all the figures talked by themself; in fact for Rickie. He has the Game to win a major championship !!! So, go, fight and win Rickie Fowler !!

Rickie Fowler, 2020, this is your year !!
