The golf world has witnessed several talented players shift to the Saudi-funded league over the past year. With their lucrative money-driven offers, LIV Golf officials were able to lure out some of the top players from the PGA Tour. However, there were some who didn’t give up on their legacies for LIV’s hefty paychecks. And Rickie Fowler is a very prominent name among these few.

Fowler, 34, is one of the strongest pillars of the PGA Tour. Known for his unfiltered personality, the golfer has gained millions of fans throughout his career.  The former Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship winner has tons of records registered in his name. In fact, he was the top-ranked amateur golfer for 36 weeks! 

Having said that, his performances of late have not been as great as they used to be. Very recently, the dry spell spanning over five years since he last won the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open has come to an end, earning him over $4 million this season. His recent T6 finish at the Charles Schwab Challenge, where he pocketed $293,625, seems to have changed the game for him. Not to forget, the five-time PGA Tour winner also showcased an amazing skill set at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Currently, the golfer is ranked 46th on the OWGR leaderboard, which is a huge positive update for the player! Since he is among the top 60 players in the world, Fowler will be able to tee it up at the U.S. Open scheduled for June 15 onwards at Los Angeles Country Club. This could be a major turning point for the golfer’s professional career. And if things go well for Fowler, he might even make it to the top of the OWGR leaderboard very soon!
