Top this: Fowler's pro-am chicanery

Rickie Fowler during the PGA Tour's 2014 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

You might think there's no difference between your game and Rickie Fowler's after he topped this shot during the recent pro-am for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

But there's still a distinction to be made: It's believable when he says he did this intentionally, seeking a light moment.

Fowler tweeted in response to a fan's question: "On purpose...fun to do"

At 53rd in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, Fowler has seen signs of improvement since working with Butch Harmon on changes to his swing – most recently paying off at the Masters.

This week, however, not so much – maybe he should stick to aiming for the sweet spot. He'll miss the cut at the Zurich Classic with a 3-over total (75-72). He's not alone, as Billy Horsche, the defending champ, and Patrick Reed, a two-time winner this season, played in his group and also earned MCs.
