An emerging force on the pro circuit, 24-year-old Rickie Fowler was previously the number-one ranked amateur in the world during 2007 and 2008 before turning professional in 2009. Fowler made a big impact in his first 12 months on tour, securing the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 2010 before following that up with a fifth-place finish at the 2011 Open Championship. In October 2011 Fowler claimed his first professional tour victory with a six-shot lead over Rory McIlroy at the OneAsia Tour's Kolon Korea Open. His 2nd professional title was his much anticipated maiden win on the PGA Tour, defeating Rory McIlroy and D. A. Points in a playoff for the 2012 Wells Fargo Championship. Rickie Fowler clubs are varied, with the newcomer endorsing the Cobra BIO Cell driver along with Cobra's Tour Trusty wedge.
