Fowler falls out of contention with 84 in final round of Memorial

Usually if a golfer has a bad round of golf, he will not spend time with the media or the gallery of fans.

But fan-favorite Rickie Fowler showed his professionalism by spending time with the media and spent 30 minutes signing autographs for the fans. Nobody would’ve blamed the former Oklahoma State product if he wanted to go to the clubhouse and hide out after a disappointing Sunday at the Memorial.

Fowler was 3rd after Saturday’s third round, three shots from the lead held by Spencer Levin.

But on Sunday, he fell faster than Haley’s Comet in the final round, shooting a whopping 12-over-par 84 to drop from third place at 5-under-par to a tie for 52nd place with three other golfers at 7-over par. That 84 matched the fourth-highest final round in the 37 years of the Memorial’s history. The highest was back in 1981 by Gary Hallberg with an 88.

Fowler shot a 40 on the front nine and a 44 on the back nine.

His troubles started early in the round at number-2 where he pulled a drive and on number-3 where he missed a three-putt from 5 1/2 feet missed.

The collapse would indicate fatigue, but Fowler said “no”.

His collapse was really stunning considering that he has been one of the hottest and most consistent PGA Tour golfers the past two months, winning once and finishing in the top ten in four tournaments.

The 84 is Fowler’s highest score on the PGA Tour. His previous high score was a 79 in the final round of the Northern Trust Open earlier this season.
