Hal­loween cos­tume

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS - — As­so­ci­ated Press

Rickie Fowler did his best im­i­ta­tion of a gi­ant pump­kin in the fi­nal round, decked out in haz­ard-cone orange from head to toe. Shoes, pants, belt, neck­lace, cap — even his Rolex had orange ac­cents.

“I went to Ok­la­homa State,” Fowler said, ex­plain­ing the rea­son for his Day­Glo out­fit. “Not many peo­ple wear orange. It’s a good way to stand out.”

Ac­tu­ally, Fowler didn’t need any help for that. He fin­ished his first Bri­tish Open in a tie for 14th at 4 un­der af­ter post­ing his sec­ond 67 of the week Sun­day. He also made one of the best shots of the day, hol­ing a putt of al­most 130 feet from off the green for birdie on the 17th hole.
