Rickie has a proven knack for "firsts". After all, which other professional golfer has a background not in competitive golf, but rather motocross racing? Fortunately for fans of the new golf generation, Rickie traded in his dirt bike for a golf cart at the age of 14. And he hasn't looked back since.
Now in his twenties, Rickie has become the only player in history to be the NCAA's Player of the Year as a freshman, and one of the fastest to have a shot at his PGA Tour card. In 2010, he was named the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year.
Edgy and non-traditional yet completely low-key and approachable, Rickie is already well on his way in the world of professional golf. With his larger than life performances – and belt-buckles – Rickie Fowler is definitely someone to catch…if you can.
