Rickie Fowler drained an unreal hole-in-one at the Waste Management Open
Rickie Fowler might actually be back.
After a few down years in the world rankings for the 34-year-old, one of the game’s most well-known golfers is capitalizing on the promise that made him a fan favorite.
On Sunday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, he rewarded those fans once again with an absolutely perfect ace on the par three No. 7. Seriously, you may not see a more perfect hole-in-one again.
There was never a doubt it was going in from the moment Fowler made contact.
That was the third ace of Fowler’s career on the PGA Tour and his first since the 2015 Quicken Loans National. It was also the seventh hole-in-one in the history of hole No. 7 at TPC Scottsdale.
While the WM Phoenix Open is known for producing aces, those have typically come at the raucous par-three No. 16 hole inside the stadium. And when the ball goes in with just one stroke there, it’s a sight unlike any in golf—as Sam Ryder found out last year.
Fowler’s ace certainly moved him up the leaderboard. It just didn’t leave him within true striking distance of Scottie Scheffler’s lead at 15-under, even if Rickie saw his outright odds shift from +15000 to +2700 at FanDuel Sportsbook.
