With a potential $1 million bonus on the line, Rickie Fowler has committed to play in next week’s season-ending Children’s Miracle Network Classic.

Fowler, 21, is 23rd on the money list in his first full season on the PGA Tour. He trails rookie Troy Merritt by one shot in the Kodak Challenge, a yearlong competition that awards $1 million to the player who has the lowest cumulative score on predetermined holes.

The Children’s Miracle Network Classic, to be held Nov. 11-14 in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., is the final full-field event of the season on Tour.
