Fowler said he’d built up to the win with baby steps, by first challenging at each of the majors last year. “I was always looked at as having only one win on Tour, and I always felt that I needed to put myself in a position to win more often, and I did that last year,” he said. “I look at this event as basically like a major. It has the major feel, obviously one of the best fields we play all year, on a tough golf course.” Fowler might have been interested to hear another name that was constantly on the second and third line of the leaderboard at majors throughout his career. Twenty- eight times, in fact. Yeah, he was a real underachiever, that Jack Nicklaus bloke. But it’s the law of averages thing: if you throw yourself into the fray enough times, eventually you’ll be the last man standing. Fowler learned that at the Players. We’re all probably guilty of judging Fowler a little too harshly over the past few years. It’s easy to forget, sometimes, that winning isn’t everything. Even if he hadn’t won at Sawgrass, he still treated everyone to 90 minutes of the most sublime shotmaking seen on Tour this year. Time will tell if this win becomes the rocket that propels Fowler to greatness. His stats and results this season weren’t exactly sensational leading into the Players, but now he (and everyone else) knows he has what it takes to turn the screws when it counts.
