Fowler rides fast start to soar into Masters players

Saturday, 8 April 2017 :  American Rickie Fowler rode the momentum of a fast start to shoot a best of the day second-round 67 and move into a four-way share of the lead at the U.S. Masters on Friday.

The world number eight made an eagle and four birdies in blustery conditions to reach four under par for the tournament and give himself a shot at shedding the tag of being the best current player without a major title.

Fowler is planning to slow his game down as he bids to improve on his best Masters placing of tied fifth in 2014.


Fowler will tee off on Saturday with Belgian Thomas Pieters, who sits alongside him at the top of the leaderboard. Spain’s Sergio Garcia and American Charley Hoffman are also on four under.


Fowler is relishing the prospect of playing in calmer conditions over the weekend.

“Greens are getting a little quicker,” he said. “We are not going to have much wind so it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be a real golf tournament.”
