Fowler makes statement on, off course

On a day when John Daly channeled his inner Ian Poulter and essentially wore the Stars & Stripes as his trousers, Rickie Fowler made his customary Sunday fashion statement. And after he finished, he was asked to describe his outfit. “Orange from head to toe – shoes, pants, belt, shirt, hat, bracelet, necklace,” Fowler said stating the obvious. “It’s my school colors.” The Oklahoma State product, who was playing in his first British Open, made a statement on the course Sunday, too, with a bogey-free 67 that saw him play his last six holes in 4 under. It was his second 67 of the tournament and put him at 4 under for 72 holes. “I had a bit of a slow start, but played great at the end,” Fowler said. “It’s awesome to put up a score like that on Sunday. … The feeling I had at 17 when I made the putt (for birdie) from off the green was very special." “Links golf is my favorite. I love playing over here at the Home of Golf, playing the game as its meant to be played. So I hope I can keep coming back for many years.” – Helen Ross
