“Rickie Fowler was launching one golf ball after another down the range Sunday morning at Oakmont Country Club under the watchful eye of coach Butch Harmon. It wasn’t an unusual sight on the last day of the U.S. Open. Except Fowler wasn’t getting ready to play the final round,” writes Steve DiMeglio of USA TODAY Sports.
“Having missed the cut, the world No. 6 stayed in the Oakmont area and went back to work despite having the weekend off.”
Not driving well + not making putts = One tough stretch for Rickie Fowler.
He hopes to get back on track this week. https://t.co/GQnE8PVChs

“After putting that work in, Fowler expects to get some ‘good stuff’ going this week when the event begins at Congressional Country Club on Thursday,” Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press writes.
“… Despite his recent struggles, Fowler said he’s ‘definitely not concerned’ about his play. He cited driving and putting as his two biggest problems.”
