Rickie Fowler has been on the fringe of greatness for 5 years. He progressively improves his game and mental strength to compete at the élite levels. Given his 5 under final round at The Masters, the golfing world seems to think he is on his way to greater heights. Personally, I am not so sure there are so many factors!
Before I start into my thoughts, I know my Sister who loves Rickie Fowler. She is one of his biggest fans and dropped me this note on my Facebook Page The Grateful Golfer outlining his star like qualities. Not sure many of those are golf related, but we all follow professional athletes for our own reasons.
I can say with certainty that Fowler has game. Personally, I would like to have his iron play, but others have different ideas:
Earlier, I asked if Rickie Fowler would win a Major or a professional golf tournament in 2018. While 56% say he will win both, I stated I was not sure he would anything. I am still in that corner regardless of his Masters finish. I even covered his successes in 2015, but not winning a Major seems the only benchmark for players of Fowler’s abilities. However, I can say is that I hope I am proven wrong; that Fowler finds that success. I would never wish him ill-luck, but I am not sure, given his competition, that he reach the tipping point in 2018.
This is a tough question, but what are your thoughts on Rickie future successes?
