‘No hard feelings or anything like that ‘ – Rickie Fowler explains decision to split with longtime caddie



Rickie Fowler is getting ready to compete at this week’s Northern Trust Open after squeezing into the top 125 in the FedEx Cup standings.

The 33-year-old is looking to overcome a poor run of form that has seen his star fade, with the former World Number 4 now languishing outside the top 150 in the world.

Ahead of this week’s FedEx Cup opener, Golf Channel’s Todd Lewis first reported that Fowler had split from longtime caddie Joe Skovron who had been on Fowler’s bag since Rickie turned pro in 2009.

Speaking on the split, Fowler told Lewis:

“It happened Friday night when we finished up in Greensboro. Told Joe I wasn’t really gonna go into details on who brought up the decision or who made the decision or anything like that. We’ve always been a team, we always will be a team, he’s like a big brother to me. Friendship and all that comes first.

No hard feelings or anything like that, I just thought it might be the best option for the current time, but by no means does this mean we’re not gonna rekindle the flame in the future or anything like that, but I know it’s been tough on both of us.” 

Ben Schomin, the tour operations manager for Cobra Puma Golf, will caddie for Fowler this week in Memphis. Schomin filled in for Bryson DeChambeau last summer following his own split with his caddie, and per Fowler, nothing is decided yet on a long-term replacement.

“Still don’t know where I’ll end up,” Fowler told Lewis. “I got Ben on the bag for me this week. I thought about who I am gonna bring in for kind of a one-off, or this could kind of be next week as well, just depending on how we play this week.”

Fowler has competed in 17 events this season, missing the cut in eight and failing to register a top-20 finish in any.

Judge rules against LIV trio’s FedEx Cup suspension appeal in early victory for PGA Tour



On a dramatic day off the course in the world of golf, a federal judge denied Talor Gooch, Hudson Swafford and Matt Jones’ application for a temporary restraining order (TRO) against the PGA Tour.

The result means that the trio will now miss out on this year’s FedEx Cup Playoffs that get underway this week at the Northern Trust Open.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs made the case that the three golfers were being unfairly blocked from competing in the FedEx Cup playoffs. On the other side, attorneys for the PGA Tour argued that all the golfers stood to suffer was solely money related, therefore not meeting the standard for “irreparable harm.”

After almost two and a half hours, Judge Freeman ruled in favour of the PGA Tour and denied the trio a TRO, concluding that the three players had “not established irreparable harm.”

Following the verdict, LIV Golf released a short statement saying they were disappointed that the trio “won’t be allowed to play golf.”

Gooch, Swafford and Jones are due to return to the courtroom along with seven others for the bigger antitrust suit filed against the PGA Tour. The suit alleges that the PGA Tour has been unlawfully sanctioning them for signing on with LIV Golf. 

At the close of Tuesday’s case, Judge Freeman indicated that the larger antitrust lawsuit could be heard in the fall of 2023.

Report: Cam Smith set for LIV debut in Boston after accepting mega sign-on fee



In the moments after Cameron Smith won his first major championship at St. Andrews, he was immediately asked about rumors that he may be interested in joining LIV Golf.

Smith didn’t deny his interest in joining LIV, which caused speculation to run rampant in the days following the Open Championship.

“I just won the British Open and you’re asking about that? I think that’s pretty not that good,” Smith said.

Less than a month after he hoisted the Claret Jug on the sacred ground of the Old Course, the Champion Golfer of the Year is now LIV bound.

According to The Telegraph, the number two ranked player in the world has signed a deal worth north of $100 million.

The Australian will also still have a chance to win the FedEx Cup prior to joining LIV.

“A formal announcement is not expected until the three-week FedEx Cup play-off series has finished,” the report states.

Smith currently ranks second in the FedEx Cup standings; therefore, he has a realistic chance at making a run at the FedEx Cup and the $18 million that comes with it before teeing it up at LIV Boston, where he will reportedly make his LIV debut, after the PGA TOUR season ends.

Asked to comment on the Telegraph’s report at his Tuesday presser at the Northern Trust, Smith stated: “My goal here is to win the FedExCup Playoffs,” before adding that he has “no comment” on the report.

Many of the players who’ve left the PGA TOUR for LIV Golf have been shrugged off due to age or a declining skill set. Smith is an elite talent in the prime of his career and the most recent major champion.
