WATCH - Rickie Fowler misses SIX-INCH putt at US PGA

Rickie Fowler

Look at the picture above.

Rickie Fowler missed this putt at the US PGA Championship on Friday.

Yeah. Seriously.

The 31-year-old American stepped up to tap-in on the par-4 sixth, his 15th hole of the day after starting his round on the tenth.

• Pro DQ'd for signing incorrect score at US PGA

• Bob Mac bounces back to make US PGA cut

His eight-foot putt for par narrowly missed and he had just inches left for bogey. A tap-in, basically. 

Only he tapped it too gently, barely moving the ball and almost missing it altogether. That turned what should have been a bogey into a double - and a costly one at that. Watch what happened...

Bad enough under any circumstances but truly awful when you consider the context.

After opening his title tilt at TPC Harding Park with a disappointing three-over 73, he was four-under for his round and one-under for the tournament as he played the sixth. By the time he walked off the green, he was one-over.

• Emergency services tackle fire at Wentworth

• DeChambeau breaks driver in US PGA first round

He ultimately signed for a one-under 69 to lie two-over for the championship - missing the cut by a shot. 

Brutal.

Fowler, a five-time winner on the PGA Tour, was making his 41st major start but is still searching for his first victory in the game's marquee events.
