Rickie Fowler discusses why size isn’t important in golf, how he golfs even while on vacation, gambling on the course, and more on the Dan Patrick Show

Published

on

On Tuesday, Rickie Fowler appeared on the Dan Patrick Show where the 30-year-old shared his thoughts on several topics surrounding the world of golf.

Speaking on the disparity in size between the likes of Brooks Koepka and himself, Fowler explained that while size can help in golf, it isn’t a determining factor.

“That’s what’s the beauty of golf, it doesn’t matter what you look like, how big you are, it’s who can play the best that week, that day.”

Discussing golfing while on vacation, Fowler was bullish on both his and Dustin Johnson’s ability to play when beers are involved on the course.

However, the 30-year-old was less complimentary when it came to his friend Jordan Spieth’s competence while playing under the influence, siding with the host when he cast doubt on Spieth’s previous claim that he was “pretty good” at playing while drinking on the course.

Fowler then discussed his experiences playing golf with both Tom Brady and Michael Jordan, speaking of their competitive edge which still burns bright, their golfing ability as well as gambling on the course.

Speaking on the general topic of gambling, Fowler explained how though he has seen “5 or 10 (thousand)” change hands on the course before, he prefers “good, friendly games” involving “$1 or $2 thousand”.

The Dan Patrick Show airs daily at 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. ET on AT&T AUDIENCE Network which can be found on DIRECTV Ch. 239.

    Gambling while lots of bucks are in your bank account doesn’t impress.

‘After that, nothing’s ever intimidated me. Ever.’ – The moment that Tiger Woods lost all fear

Published

on

Tiger Woods’ fearlessness on the course has always separated him from the rest, but when did Tiger ‘learn’ this trait? Well in a rare interview, Tiger revealed the exact moment.

At 17-years-old Tiger spoke in an ESPN feature, and was asked by an interviewer: “Does anything ever intimidate you?”

It was at this moment that Woods revealed that when he was 11, the now 15-time-major champion was competing in the 11-12 age division at the Junior Worlds for the first time when a competitor drove the opening green. 

“That intimidated the hell out of me” said Woods in the interview. 

In the end, however, Tiger beat the player who he was intimidated by, and it was to be at that point that Woods no longer feared anybody any more. Tiger discussed the incident at depth with father Earl, and revealed to the cameras: “My dad and I had a long talk about it. After that, nothing’s ever intimidated me. Ever.”

With 82 PGA Tour victories and 15 major championships at the age of 44, that fearlessness has been at the core of Woods’ incredible success.

Check out the segment below from the ESPN feature which lasts from 4:21-5:02.
