Why 2015 has been a breakout year for Rickie Fowler. And also a disappointment.

August 11, 2015

HAVEN, Wisconsin -- At times this season, Rickie Fowler has been been as luminous as his Sunday Oklahoma State-themed ensembles. At others, his game resembles an eyesore akin to...well, those same orange outfits.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Fowler was as good as one could be without winning in 2014. He finished in the top five in all four majors, highlighted by runner-up showings in the U.S. and British Opens. Expectations were high for 2015, perhaps too high for a player that had just one career victory (at least according to his fellow competitors).
