One-on-One with 2017 Honda Classic Champion Rickie Fowler
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. (CBS12) —
There may have never been a more popular Honda Classic champion than Rickie Fowler. The Jupiter Island resident is beloved by kids, advertisers, female golf fans, his fellow competitors, and even the media. So when he roasted the field in 2017 to win the Honda Classic by four strokes, it was an important victory for both him, and the tournament.
Fowler sits down with CBS12 Sports Director Matt Lincoln to talk about what it was like watching one of his best friends Justin Thomas have a season for the ages, whether he actually recruits other top golfers to come live in the Jupiter Island area, and whether the criticism is fair, that some call him "too nice" to win lots of events on the PGA Tour.
