Rickie the boy racer

Today's Golfer (UK) - - First Tee -

Rickie Fowler’s child­hood was spent rid­ing dirt bikes for fun. Aged 12, he was known to gun his Suzuki RM125 off 50-foot jumps. Golf re­mained in the back­seat un­til a badly-bro­ken an­kle ended his mo­tocross ca­reer be­fore it had even be­gun. Since then, he’s turned his at­ten­tion to rac­ing on four wheels, and has even talked about com­pet­ing at Le Mans one day.
