Ryder Cup Profiles: Ric Flair
What? He retired? He doesn't play golf? Then what the hell am I talking about?
Oh that's right, Rickie Flare. Not Ric. Duh.
As a senior in high-school, Fowler could choose his path. He had offers from all the top golf schools in the country, but in the end it came down to just two, UCLA and Oklahoma State. Though I hate to admit it, he probably made the right choice in OK State, where the program is second to none.
With talent like his though, not even the big egos and big cowboy hats of the Oklahoma State program could hold him back. He quit school early and joined the Tour, $2.9 million later it looks like it was a pretty damn good decision.
