Rickie Fowler admitted that he is really hungry for a major win this year after going close in all 4 majors this year. Last year, this young American golfer was a really a model of consistency, registering a Top-5 end at Masters before taking a share of 2nd at US Open as well as Open Championship – albeit some distance behind Rory McIlroy and Martin Kaymer (US Open).
After that, Rickie ended 3rd behind Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson in US PGA Championship at Valhalla, whereas he also relished ten top-10s in twenty six starts on the PGA Tour last year without dealing to introduce to his single PGA Tour win at 2012 Wells Fargo Championship.
He has cashed in all 5 of his shows since the turn of the year without severely competing, and is expecting that playing in the Houston Open this week would offer him the preparation his requirements to challenge for a Green Jacket at the Augusta Masters.
Rickie Fowler stated that playing the weeks before definitely expected set me up to play on Thursday at the majors previous year. His patience was also very good previous year. This is a very long week at any major, and you just need to keep moving forward and stay away from as many mistakes as possible.
He added that he was really able to put himself in some very great positions, but unfortunately he ran into two people who just ran away with it mainly Martin Kaymer at US Open. He never gave them a chance that week.
