Hopping on the Rickie Fowler Bandwagon

Okay this has taken some time but I’ve had a change of heart about Rickie Fowler. When Fowler first hit the PGA Tour it seemed like the only notable thing about him was his orange jumpsuit, or what I like to call the “traffic cone” apparel script. Here it is below.

After this year’s Masters though I’ve changed my tune about Fowler. First I watched some of the pre-Masters interviews and was impressed. Then I saw Rickie on Thursday morning at the ceremonial tee shot, which was just Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. This was the first time Arnold Palmer was missing following his passing.  In my opinion, a historic moment in golf. There may have been, but I didn’t see any other tour players who made the effort to attend that ceremony.

At that point in time I realized something. Rickie gets it.

During the Masters he played very well and ended up in the 2nd to last group, paired with Jordan Spieth. Rickie was at the top of the leaderboard even during the final round, before Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia separated from the field.

So this is an official HOG-style hats off to Rickie Fowler. Looking forward to his first major win. Hopefully it comes before 73 attempts unlike Sergio’s did.

I feel like I’ve been on crack for four straight days and I’m now in withdrawal. I need some Masters methadone. I’m so spent. Sitting on the couch eating salt and vinegar chips and watching the drama of the Masters Tournament is draining.

Once again the Masters delivered. There’s no golf tournament product like it.  The genius of Bobby Jones and Alister MacKenzie in creating Augusta National Golf Club shines every year. THE MASTERS NEVER DISAPPOINTS.

I’ll chime in with some commentary soon. I need to catch my breath and absorb another incredible Masters… process it.

Until then congratulations to Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose on an epic battle and showing great sportsmanship. I’ll finish tonight with one bit of great news: Only 361 days until the 2018 Masters Tournament! Can’t wait.

Rory McIlory Apparel Script Violation

Written by: Tony Korologos | Saturday, April 8th, 2017

What’s the call-in number for violations in the Masters Tournament?  Rory McIlory has violated his apparel script. Nike’s scripting for him had red shoes, but he’s wearing white shoes. Rory’s gone rogue. I already bought the red shoes because they were in the scripting. Can I get a refund?

Is anyone other than me paying attention to this atrocity?  Who do I call or email?
