He was ranked as one of the most overrated players by his peers in a poll that came out in 2015, then promptly went out and won the Players Championship. Rickie Fowler has enjoyed a solid career, complete with tournament victories, Ryder and Presidents Cup appearances and a top-four world ranking, but almost certainly to date he has fallen short of both his and the pundits’ expectations.

Fowler came out of Oklahoma State University in 2009 with much fanfare. He was a two-time Walker Cup player and winner of the Ben Hogan Award for collegiate player of the year. He played well in 2010 with some high finishes and was named to the U.S. Ryder Cup team, and he was off and running, to date winning five PGA Tour events.

Fowler has been in somewhat of a slump for an extended time, but his recent performance at the C.J. Cup in Las Vegas, where he finished third, showed a return to form that Fowler believes will be ongoing. As one of the more dynamic personalities in the game, professional golf is in a better place when Rickie Fowler is playing well.
