‘Rickie cherishes this stage’: Fowler’s companions bolster Presidents Cup gesture
ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. – Charles Howell III coincidentally was the principal player to visit the RSM Classic media focus following Wednesday’s news that U.S. Presidents Cup chief Tiger Woods had chosen Rickie Fowler to supplant Brooks Koepka on the current year’s group.
“Did he pick Rickie?” Howell asked when informed that Koepka needed to withdrawal from the matches with knee damage.
It was a typical response from players at Sea Island Resort when they were informed that the world’s top-positioned player won’t make the excursion one month from now to Royal Melbourne.
“It’s amazingly appalling. No. 1 player on the planet in your group and he can’t play?” said Zach Johnson, one of Woods’ three bad habit chiefs. “There’s nothing positive about that. It’s damage, nothing positive about that.”

Streams Koepka has pulled back from one month from now’s Presidents Cup with damage and U.S. skipper Tiger Woods named Rickie Fowler his substitution.
There was, be that as it may, a lot of help for Fowler as the late expansion to the group.
“Rickie adores the stage. A great deal like a Phil Mickelson or now staying nearby Kevin Kisner a few, there’s some folks that like to leave the last green and make that putt, they need the ball with no time on the clock and Rickie’s that person,” Davis Love III said. “It’s sad for Brooks, however I think they grabbed an inside and out group fellow both playing and in the group room, so I’m energized for him.”
