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.

Report: Brooks Koepka splits with swing coach Claude Harmon III

Published

on

Brooks Koepka has split with his swing coach Claude Harmon III, bringing to an end their successful 8 year relationship.

GolfWeek broke the news, with the swing instructor revealing in an interview with the publication that he and Brooks were no longer working together.

Per the report, Harmon told GolfWeek that the two parted ways two months ago, three days after the Masters in November: “I was informed on the Wednesday after the Masters that he wanted to go in a different direction.”

Harmon was informed of the split in a face-to-face meeting in Florida, and reached by GolfWeek by text, Koepka told the publication:

“I love Claude, we had a great run, and he’s still family to me, but unfortunately we’re not working together anymore”

Harmon helped Koepka win 4 major championships and reach the World Number One ranking in their time together.

Is this the strangest putting stroke ever seen on the PGA Tour?

Published

on

When it comes to putting, we all have our own little quirks and techniques, but during The American Express, one golfer took it to the next level displaying the oddest putting stroke you’ll see for some time.

Mark Hubbard was on his final hole during the second round of the event and knew that he was heading home from the event – comfortably missing the cut.

With that freedom in mind, Hubbard decided to have some fun and faced with a 10-foot putt for par, the 31-year-old hunched over – after doing an Elvis style little move – and placed his pinky just above the hosel.

Check out the bizarre moment here.

Hubbard missed the putt, and it was a moment that had golf fans on the Twittersphere truly baffled.


 

This is not a putting stroke I can see catching on!
