Rickie Fowler Takes Home First PGA Tour Victory
CARLSBAD, CA (May 6, 2012) – Today, Rickie Fowler took home his first PGA Tour win in a quality field at the Wells Fargo Championship. The COBRA PUMA GOLF professional used his impressive driving distance and accuracy to fight off the competition in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship. Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points headed to a playoff where Rickie took home the win.
Rickie had four impressive rounds hitting bombs off the tee. His total average driving distance was 305.9 yards for the tournament and hit almost 80% of the greens in regulation, ranking him at number one for total driving for the tournament. After a 5 under 67 on Saturday, Rickie charged during his final round, putting up 6 birdies to get into a playoff with Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points.
On the first playoff hole, Rickie hit his AMP Driver to a prime spot on the fairway, setting him up for his big finish. With a short shot to the green, Rickie hit it to 4 feet and sunk his birdie putt for the win.
“Rickie Fowler is an excellent brand ambassador for COBRA PUMA GOLF and has been tremendous for the game,” commented Bob Philion, President of COBRA PUMA GOLF. “He has a commanding combination of power and accuracy fueled by the COBRA AMP family of products that he combines with his signature style and edge, making him a world class golfer that fans rally around.”
