Rickie Fowler Goes for the Green Jacket Today

Can Fowler secure the win in the second-biggest tournament of the year?

Yeah, that’s right. I called The Masters the second-biggest tournament of the year.

Obviously, the Ryder Cup is the biggest tournament of the year, because who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned showdown between the patriots and the King George’s army Americans and the British.

ANYWAYS, Oklahoma State golf’s golden boy is in prime position to win The Masters and his first major at only 28 years old. He is only one stroke behind co-leaders Justin Rose and Sergio Garcia, thanks to a one-under par third round today.

Just how close is the leaderboard? This close.

Tomorrow should be a lot of fun. Fowler and his golf partner for tomorrow’s final round Jordan Spieth will tee off at 1:35 p.m. CT.

Yesterday, Fowler had the best odds to win the tournament. As it so often does, that has now changed.

As you can see, Fowler still has good odds, just not the best. Bovada has the same order as, but they gave Fowler +450 odds to win it all. Rose has +275 and Spieth has +333 odds to win.
