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.
