Rickie Fowler wins in just second event after ball switch

Rickie Fowler Witb

Two weeks ago, it was announced that Rickie Fowler had made the switch to the TaylorMade TP5x ball.

In just his second event with his new ball in play, he captured his fifth PGA Tour title at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Fowler first hit the ball during the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National when he partnered Dustin Johnson in the opening day’s foursomes session.

Earlier this week, when asked how he was adjusting to the new ball, the 30-year-old said: “It goes a decent amount further. Eight-iron I'm probably getting five yards more carry or so.

“Then on through the bag 6-iron's getting about eight more and then eight to ten on the 4-iron, then driver's carrying further. So it's a good thing to adjust to, definitely enjoying it.”

As far as clubs, Fowler ensured it was back-to-back wins for the new Cobra KING F9 SPEEDBACK driver, following Bryson DeChambeau’s victory at last week’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic.
