Rickie Fowler Eyes Green Jacket
By mustang6560 on 1/25/16
Rickie Fowler has officially put the "Big 3" of Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day on notice.
The former Oklahoma State standout added his sixth professional win yesterday at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship and in his post-round press conference he made it absolutely clear that his goal is to win the Masters.
"I'd like to jump in and be a part of that crew," said Fowler, sitting beside the huge Falcon Trophy awarded to the Abu Dhabi champion. "The goal right now with where my game's at -- it's the best it's been this early in the season in my career -- I'm working on getting ready for Augusta.
With the victory, Rickie jumped Bubba Watson to move up to #4 in the world, which begs the question, "Is the Big 3" now the "Big 4"? Regardless, the storyline heading into Augusta is even more intriguing now.
Jordan and Jason are the odds-on favorite to win the Masters at 7/1, Rory is 8/1 and Rickie is 20/1. I imagine Vegas will increase Rickie's odds to win as more and more people eagerly take him at 20/1.

I am not a fan of Mr. Fowler but he has had a fairly nice run of late on both the Euro and PGA Tour's.
Welcome back Mustang6560, or should I say, "howdy pardner".
Who says golf doesn't have an off season.
Well, looks like Rickie needed to work a little harder.
