Watching him on TV, you get the impression that Rickie Fowler would be a fun guy to hang out with.
What kind of stuff would you do outside of the ropes of a PGA Tour event with Fowler? Based on his Instagram account, likely anything from fishing, to terrifying rides on a stunt plane, to cliff diving, to -- at least yesterday -- playing an 18-hole round of golf left handed with a good buddy.
Fowler, along with friend and fellow PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale, challenged each other to a left-handed round of golf on Wednesday. We already saw what Fowler can do from the left side during a practice round on the 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass in May.
Here's a glimpse of one of the shots Fowler hit yesterday:
OK, certainly something to be desired with the result, but the technique is pretty good.
The final tally? Fowler -- or "Richard Flowers" -- 110 and Tringale -- or "Mac Triangles" 117. Not bad at all. And, based on this picture of the front-nine scores, it looks like the two may have been writing left-handed too:
Finally, here's a photo of the two competitors after the round:
