Rick Yutaka Fowler (born December 13, 1988) is an American professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour. He was the number one ranked amateur golfer in the world for 37 weeks in 2007 and 2008.

Rickie Fowler says he understands the political and cultural significance of orange on the Emerald Isle. That won't stop the 30-year-old from wearing his traditional Sunday ensemble at Royal Portrush.

Fowler, who enters the final round of the 2019 Open Championship in a tie for sixth after a Saturday 66, had been warned by players and caddies about wearing his usual attire. That's because the color orange has a connotation in Northern Ireland. The Orange Order is a Protestant fraternal order with deep conservative unionist roots in the country.

Though Ireland is currently in an era of peace, the color can still conjure memories to the past.

Tiger Woods seen grimacing at British Open while teeing off

Tiger Woods seen grimacing at British Open while teeing off The first round of the British Open kicked off today, and the weather has not been friendly to players, with rain and wind making the conditions difficult. As usual, all eyes were on three-time British Open champ Tiger Woods as he teed off from the first hole. However, Woods was seen grimacing immediately after he teed off, and people immediately began to speculate that he was dealing with an injury.

Despite all the ceasefires and agreements, Northern Ireland remains a fractious part of the world. In the article, Lynch informs us that Brooks Koepka’s caddie, Ricky Elliott, warned Rickie Fowler long ago about wearing his trademark orange on the final day of this year’s Open Championship.

However, after doing some research, Fowler told the media he has decided to stick with his Sunday outfit.

“I obviously know the history of Ireland and Northern Ireland. But a few people told me that being not a local, it doesn't necessarily matter as much or it shouldn't,” Fowler said at Portrush. “I'll have traditional Sunday orange."

Orange has been Fowler's motif throughout his career, his Sunday clothes shaded in the color as a nod to his Oklahoma State University roots.

Fowler begins Sunday eight shots behind 54-hole leader Shane Lowry. Since finishing T-2 to Rory McIlroy at the 2014 Open, Fowler has not finished in the top 20 at this event.

Lowry pockets over $1.9 million for Open Championship win.
Shane Lowry is leaving Royal Portrush with the Claret Jug and over $1.9 million after a six-shot win at the Open Championship on Sunday. The total purse for the 148th playing of golf's oldest major was $10,750,000, with Lowry claiming the top prize. Tommy Fleetwood's second-place finish saw him bring in $1,120,000, and Tony Finau pocketed $718,000 for his third-place showing. Trying conditions led to plenty of leaderboard movement on Sunday, with no player losing out on more money than J.B. Holmes. The veteran American entered the day in third, and he would have earned $718,000 for that finish.
