AUGUSTA, Ga. -- While Tiger Woods and Phil MIckelson have proven themselves during Masters week. Rickie Fowler is hoping he can do the same, starting in a couple days.
Last year was Fowler's first trip to Augusta National, and it was far from a bust. He was only 22 at the time, but finished 38th, highlighted by a second round 69. The rookie jitters are gone though, and Rickie has a good feeling about this one.
"I got my first one out of the way last year, so I guess I'm not a rookie anymore. So, that's definitely nice. I definitely feel a little more comfortable, and like I said, I'm playing well, so I think it'll be a little more relaxed this week versus my first one last year."
The sidebar to his tournament this week ... he's also looking for his first PGA win. He had four top tens last year.
