In the news:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Standing in a fairway bunker on his final hole of the day, Rickie Fowler had a choice to make.
Option 1: Take a lofted club, blast out of the bunker and hope to get up-and-down from the fairway to save par.
Option 2: Open the face on his 7-iron, pray he doesn’t nail the lip of the bunker and just maybe his ball will land safely on the green from 170 yards out.
Fowler grew up racing dirt bikes and is still a huge fan of action sports, hence the endorsement deal with Red Bull and Instagram posts with surfing god Kelly Slater and Supercross legend Jeremy McGrath.
So, yeah, Fowler chose Option 2.
He flushed his second shot from the bunker, and it settled 12 feet away for a closing birdie, a 6-under 65 and a share of the first-round lead with Shane Lowry and Hideki Matsuyama at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
“It’s not one that you try and pull off a lot,” he said. “Definitely at home, but tournament golf sometimes you don’t try and do that. Just kind of went with it. I knew I could hit it, but I had to hit it perfect.”
Fowler and the rowdy Phoenix Open seem to be a perfect match. – By Ryan Reiterman The Golf Channel
