Rickie Fowler’s choke job leads to a Tiger win at Arnold Palmer Invitational
Rickie Fowler was on Tiger’s heels, applying pressure late in the round at the Arnold Palmer Invitational today. At the par 5 16th, Fowler stared an eagle opportunity in the face—179 yards away for his second shot. What followed was a complete and utter disaster.
His approach shot hit the bank and rolled down into the water. After taking a drop, he chunked an 80-yard wedge into the middle of the pond.
Fowler bit his forearm in anger because, uh, that’s what golfers do? #firstworldproblems
Woods went on to win Bay Hill with a three shot victory and reclaim his rightful spot as the #1 player in the world. The first time since 2010. This whole Lindsey Vonn thing seems to be working out well for him.
