‘Nice guy’ Fowler won’t change in Ryder Cup matches (The Associated Press)

The first question Rickie Fowler was asked at the Ryder Cup was as good an indication as any of how his year has gone. Fowler is one of golf’s ”it” boys, part of young generation of tour players who hang out and vacation together and are as knowledgeable about fashion as they are about flop shots. Fowler subsequently blew leads in Charlotte and New York, making him 0 for 4 when he held the 54-hole lead on tour and eventually costing him both an automatic qualifying berth for the Ryder Cup and a slot in the season-ending Tour Championship.

Golf-Moore finally gets the right Ryder Cup fit (Reuters)

(Corrects number of Moore PGA Tour victories to five) By Mark Lamport-Stokes CHASKA, Minnesota, Sept 27 (Reuters) – Ryan Moore was fitted out for team uniforms as a possible Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup selection for the United States for nearly a decade, only to miss out when the final lineup was announced. Midway through this year, he was so far back in the U.S. Ryder Cup standings that he never even received the tailor’s call, but he then produced a sizzling run of form on the PGA Tour to earn the last wildcard spot on Davis Love III’s team. “So apparently I’m not going to do it (the fitting) from now on, ever,” a smiling Moore told reporters at Hazeltine on Tuesday after a practice round with team mates JB Holmes, Brandt Snedeker and Brooks Koepka.

Ryan Moore had just placed second in the Tour Championship, capping a strong weekend in Atlanta with a narrow playoff loss to Rory McIlroy , when he began to load up his gear in the parking lot about 45 minutes later, a flight home to Las Vegas with his family fast approaching. Moore figured Ryder Cup team captain Davis Love III would try to reach him, but he wasn’t exactly expecting to hear he’d been added as the final pick for the prestigious 12-man squad. ”I’ve wanted to be a part of one of these events, was beginning to think it might not happen,” Moore said.

By Tony Jimenez CHASKA, Minnesota (Reuters) – Among Bubba Watson’s goals is to one day be a Ryder Cup captain and, if his friend Rickie Fowler is any guide, this week has already given the double U.S. Masters champion a good insight into what it takes. Watson pleaded for a spot in the backroom team as a vice-captain as soon as he lost out to Ryan Moore as American skipper Davis Love III’s fourth and final wildcard pick on Sunday. “I feel like his dream would be to be a captain down the road and being here, just having that earpiece in his ear, he might not be able to last very good with it in,” a grinning Fowler told reporters.
