What did Rickie Fowler do during his nearly two-month break from competitive golf? He began a six-week clean-eating program.

“It was a good way to clean out,” Fowler told Golfweek Magazine earlier this week ahead of his season debut in Las Vegas. “I’m fresh and ready to go.”

Fowler’s return to action, though, didn’t go quite as planned. After missing out on the FedExCup Playoffs last season, Fowler missed the cut by a shot Friday at the Shriners Children’s Open, his first start since the Wyndham Championship in August, when he also failed to make the weekend.

Fowler did rally, birdieing each of his final three holes to card a second-round, 5-under 66, but he ultimately fell just shy of sticking around for two more days at TPC Summerlin. He was joined at 4 under by several other notable names, including Webb Simpson, Maverick McNealy, Keith Mitchell, Sahith Theegala, Rasmus Hojgaard, Jason Kokrak, Garrick Higgo and Cameron Young.

A number of big names on the PGA Tour missed the cut at the AT&T Byron Nelson this week, including Rickie Fowler , Brooks Koepka and Sergio Garcia. Fowler , who has missed four cuts in his last eight events, opened his week at TPC Craig Ranch with a solid score of 5-under-par on Thursday. However, due to leader Sam Burns shooting such a low score to finish on 17-under-par which pushed the cut line to 6-under-par, Fowler 's score of level-par in the second round was not enough to get him through to the weekend.
