PINEHURST, N.C. (AP) — Rickie Fowler has a great sense of fashion. He knows how to work a crowd.
Now, all he needs is a career-defining win.
Fowler will play in the final group of a major for the first time after being one of just two players to break par on a brutal Saturday at Pinehurst. He shot a 3-under 67, leaving him five shots behind U.S. Open leader Martin Kaymer.
Coming into the year, Fowler says his main goal was to do well at the majors. He contended at Augusta before fading on Sunday. Now, he’s in the mix again, though it will be difficult to chase down Kaymer.
Fowler has always carried himself like a star, but he has only one PGA Tour victory.
To some, he’s more hype than substance.
