Here’s this week’s What It Means:
1) Congrats to Rickie Fowler on his first PGA Tour win, defeating Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points in a playoff to win the Wells Fargo Championship. He finally got the monkey off his back and can finally go out and be the star that all the hype and marketing people have made him out to be.
The wedge shot into #18 in the playoff was dynamite, leaving him an easy four-foot putt for the winning birdie. The sky is the limit for Rickie, and I’d look for big things from Fowler over the next 5-10 years.
2) While McIlroy is surely dissapointed to have lost the playoff, he does have the consolation prize of becoming #1 in the world again.
Furthermore he’s continuing his good play, which should bode well for him headed into this week’s Players.
3) Meanwhile Tiger Woods’ game is all over the place. All facets of the game are off and he seems at times disinterested and has no gusto in his walk.
That will need to be fixed immediately if he wants to both contend this week at Sawgrass and be in good shape for the U.S. Open in June.
