Rickie Fowler continues to play strong

Rickie Fowler does a lot on the golf course that the average person can’t relate to.

However, on Thursday, as he was trying to finish his first round at the 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic, he was in the most familiar of positions.

“I mean, to be completely honest, I had to go to the bathroom really badly,” Fowler said, explaining part of the reason he got two bogeys to finish off a stellar performance. “Luckily, I just had a drug test, so I went straight (there). There weren’t many showers the last five holes, so I was a little shaky, not necessarily to blame for that, but it didn’t help.”

Fortunately for Fowler, he was pretty hot before his bathroom needs. The fan favorite made eight birdies and only one bogey in his first 16 holes; Add them all up and you’re done with 5-67.
