Corey Pavin has his eye on Rickie Fowler for upcoming Ryder Cup

with 4 comments

Rickie Fowler may just be a rookie on tour, but that apparently doesn’t matter to Ryder Cup captain Corey Pavin. Whether he sees a little of his bulldog mentality in Fowler or just the making of a up-and-coming golf star, he’s really giving Fowler a close look.

In the field at this week’s Byron Nelson, Pavin appears to be using the trip to Irving to get updates from a couple of Ryder Cup hopefuls. He also had the chance to chat with Stewart Cink earlier this week.

“I’m watching Rickie Fowler really closely,” Pavin said. “He’s expressed great interest in playing and I think he’s the type of player that can handle playing in the Ryder Cup. He wants to play well and show me how he’s playing. But he’s the type of player I think that’s very mature and could handle that type of situation. There hasn’t been an influx of young players recently that have fit that mold.”

  1. It’s great to see a young player, like Rickie Fowler, let Pavin know how much he wants to be part of a team. I’ll be pulling for him this weekend.
