Rickie Fowler

Scottsdale, Arizona

An interview with:


THE MODERATOR: A number of clutch shots. Do you feel the positives outweighed the negatives this week?

RICKIE FOWLER: Yeah, definitely. I wish I would have putted better the last three days, but I made a lot of good swings. This one hurts.

THE MODERATOR: Quick few questions.

Q. How much will this sting? Walk us through the thought process, 17.
RICKIE FOWLER: I mean, it's gonna hurt because I felt like I had it, especially with the way I was swinging. 17, it was 304 front and then we had an extra, it's like 26 or, I don't know, there's 30-some yards until the back bunker. It's 330-plus.

Figured -- I'm hitting a chip-cut driver. Usually don't expect it to hit on the downslope and then go 360.

So that was a bit unfortunate. I hit it right online, hit it exactly where I was looking. That's kind of the unfortunate part to hit the shots that I did and to pull them off and then it kind of backfired there. Hit a perfect shot.

Q. What about the second time you played 17? 3-wood or 5-wood?
RICKIE FOWLER: I went the 3-wood. It's a good number with 3-wood obviously with everything going on. Hit it solid. Just hit it a little high on the face and it just got up and left a little quicker than I was expecting and wanted to. So that's all that happened there.

Q. You haven't usually been this down in a long time. What will you do to get over it and how long will it take to get over it?
RICKIE FOWLER: I mean, the hard part is having, you know, all my friends and family and grandpa and my dad who haven't seen me win. But I will be able to kinda hang with them tonight.

I'll be all right. With how good I'm playing, I know I can win. That's the hard part.
