Rickie Fowler’s pro career has seen its fair share of struggles, last year suffering a major slump that saw him miss the cut at the PGA. This left golf fans wondering when Fowler would have another breakthrough, and now they know it might not come until he gets back in contention with Phil Mickelson.

The “the fried egg golf” is a golf club that has been used by Rickie Fowler to win his last two tournaments. The club was designed by Phil Mickelson, and it’s currently being sold online for $1,000.

The LIV Golf Invitational Series, sponsored by Saudi Arabia, has been the focus of the golf world in recent months. Not only has Phil Mickelson indicated interest in leaving the PGA Tour for Greg Norman’s latest vengeance toy (and so ruined his name), but Sergio Garcia and Lee Westwood have also considered the controversial decision.

However, it isn’t simply elderly golfers who have passed their prime. Rickie Fowler, who hasn’t won on Tour since 2019 and is now ranked 146th in the Official World Golf Ranking, said this week that he’s definitely considering making the transition.

Fowler was formerly rated No. 4 in the world and was one of the PGA Tour’s most consistent major championship performances. He used to be regarded as the finest player in the world without a major on his CV, but that hasn’t been the case in a long time.

The 33-year-old has more missed cuts than top-25 finishes since winning the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open. He’s missed the weekend six times in 13 starts this season, and his OWGR has dropped all the way to 146th.

Fowler hasn’t showed much in the way of life in recent years, so a change of scenery may be exactly what he needs. Did I mention that the Saudi-backed Super Golf League would have significantly smaller fields and much larger prize pools than PGA Tour events?

It’s only natural that he’d be interested.

As a prospective LIV Golf competitor, Fowler joins Phil Mickelson.

Mickelson has taken the brunt of the flak for his comments about the PGA Tour and his interest in the Saudi golf league, but he isn’t the only one considering it. Hundreds of Tour players might travel on June 9 to compete in the first LIV Golf Invitational, and Fowler could be one of them.

When asked whether he’d gotten an offer from the Saudi league ahead of the PGA Championship, Fowler said, “Yes, I have.” “To be completely honest with you, I haven’t made a choice one way or the other.” As I have said. Do I believe the PGA Tour is the greatest place to play right now? I do. Do I believe it can be improved? Yes.

“I believe that is an intriguing situation.” The LIV and Premier [Golf League] are also available. These tours, leagues, or whatever you want to call them, wouldn’t exist if people didn’t recognize that there was more possibility out there. I’ve always considered competition to be beneficial. It’s the engine that drives our game. Knowing that I could play games with males at home is how I always grew up competing. I believe that competition improves individuals in the long run, whether in business or athletics.

“It is, without a doubt, intriguing.”

Players requesting waivers to compete in the inaugural LIV Golf Invitational Series event next month have been refused by PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan, meaning Fowler would be jeopardizing his card by leaving the Tour for Norman’s upstart league. But if he can’t compete on the PGA Tour like he used to, that could be his only option.
