Rickie Fowler, the 54-hole leader entering Sunday at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, had been in contention enough lately that even casual golf fans knew the drill. The 34-year-old was trying to win his first PGA Tour event since the 2019 WM Phoenix Open, claim his sixth career tour title (and a $1.584 million first-place prize money payout) and put an exclamation point on a career turnaround that had seen him fall outside the top 150 in the World Ranking only to return to No. 35 entering this week at Detroit Golf Club.

The final hurdle for Fowler remained crossing the finish line on Sunday. The popular pro was leading entering the final round for the 11th time in his career but had gone on to win just twice in the previous 10 attempts, the most recent stumble occurring when he shot a closing five-over 75 at the U.S. Open two weeks ago, letting Wyndham Clark take the title as Fowler fell to T-5.

But Sunday was different, even when it didn’t look like it would be. After holding the lead much of the afternoon at Detroit Golf Club only to watch Adam Hadwin and Collin Morikawa surge past him late, a birdie on the 72nd hole gave Fowler a four-under 68 to tie him with Hadwin and Morikawa at 24 under. And then a birdie from 11 feet, 10 inches on the first extra hole, the same par-4 18th, gave Fowler that win he’d been so desperately looking for, four years, four months and 29 days since his last.

“It's hard to put it all into words,” said Fowler, holding his 1-year-old daughter, Maya, on the 18th green. “Obviously, a lot of good stuff this year … I knew it was just a matter of time with how I’ve been playing.”
