Rickie Fowler earns ‘Shot of the Day’ accolade in the third round of Bridgestone Invitational
Rickie Fowler earned the ‘Shot of the Day’ accolade for holing an eagle from 95 yards on the par-4, 11th hole in the third round of the World Golf Championship Bridgestone Invitational, which is in progress at the par-70 Firestone Country Club
in Ohio.
The 22-year-old Californian walked to the par-4, 11th in a yellow attire and warmed the course with his sunny gaze at the pin on the 11th green. He made a superb tee shot towards the fairway that plunged approximately 300 yards and
stopped 95 yards from the green. The rookie marched towards the position with a short iron in his hand and faded a shot towards the green. The ball flew past rest of the fairway and hit the Green in Regulation. It brushed against the lie on the back and rolled
into the cup for an eagle.
Fowler, who had three bogeys earlier in the day, picked two birdies in rest of the round and capped it with a score of 1-under-par 69. With this score, he composed an aggregate of nine-under-par, which left him tied for the sixth place.
The 2010 Rookie of the Year has been delighting his fans since the start of the event with either his Puma caps or his exotic eagles. Earlier, Fowler aced the par-3, third with a wedge.
Commenting on his game, the 22-year-old said, “I hadn't counted up putts yet, but that's pretty good. Other than that, really just had the putter going, gave myself a lot of confidence with that, hit a couple in there close, which I didn't really have to
worry too much about.”
The player is leading the field in Putts per Green Hits in Regulation with the help of an average of 1.485. This infers that the player has been working on his short game, as compared to his last season’s practice regime, which did not have much focus on
this aspect of the game.
If Fowler keeps his head straight and his putting solid, then chances are that he will take the trophy back home, as he is only three strokes away from the 54-hole leader Adam Scott.
