Rickie Fowler may not have won on the PGA Tour this season but he already looks to be buoyed by a return to Butch Harmon and a new caddie. 

The heavily-linked with LIV Golf 33-year-old has already has gone T-6 at the Fortinet Championship, missed the cut at the Shriners Children's Open and finished T-2 at the ZOZO Championship in Japan.

He's nearly equalled his FedEx Cup points tally from last year for the 2022/2023 season, and it's only October! Go Rickie!

It would be a little bit of an overstatement to suggest coming up short at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club behind an emotional Keegan Bradley was a heartbreak, but it still represented his best chance to win since the 2019 WM Phoenix Open. 

However, it appears behind the scenes things are finally (?) starting to move in the right direction for one of the most popular players on the PGA Tour. 

Harmon last week claimed that Fowler is "75 per cent" closer to where he needs to be. 

And it even appears that Bryson DeChambeau is wearing off on Fowler. 

GolfChannel's Ryan Lavner snapped Fowler on the range at Congaree Golf Club ahead of the CJ Cup "going full Bryson". 

Take a look here:

Way back in 2018 the aforementioned DeChambeau was causing a bit of a ripple in the world of professional golf - he still is, in fairness - purely for what could have been described at the time as largely unique approach. 

He was just beginning his journey to beefing up and was also doing some interesting experiments on the range. 

DeChambeau was snapped with one of his team also spraying water on his golf balls. 

It was a short time after the American, now 29, revealed that he was soaking his golf balls in Epsom salt to determine the centre of gravity. 

Bridgestone Golf's Adam Rehberg, who worked in the R&D department, previously told the PGA Tour's official site of DeChambeau's process: "He's looking to eliminate as many variables as possible.

"In this case, he wanted to know how much water would affect not only spin rate and any potential hydroplaning but ball flight as well.

"He and his caddie already are constantly taking into account adrenaline, wind, humidity and things of that nature. This is just another part of the equation that he was interested in. If there's a loss in spin for a particular scenario, he can adapt for a flyer shot." 

Peak Bryson. 

As for Fowler, who described his flirt with a victory as "bittersweet", he will be playing alongside Tom Kim and Rory McIlroy in the first two rounds of the CJ Cup. 

We're half expecting Fowler to start talking about joining the long drive circuit soon...
