On the contrary, nowadays, parents are more involved in the careers of their children. While Fowler agreed that parents are there to support them, there was never any push to pursue golf. However, as he has observed at the junior level, parents are starting to caddie for their children. He said, “Parents caddying in and I just feel like I don’t know if it’s the right way, Fowler felt that being alone without a parent helps in learning and growing up on one’s own.

Furthermore, he explained, “I feel like there’s so much that I learned and you learn growing up from, you know, you kind of figure out instead of someone telling you what to do or how to do it.” The 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic winner recently came to with another bold confession about doing the unconventional this year.
