WATCH: Rickie Fowler makes crowd go BANANAS with ace at WM Phoenix Open

We've already seen one belly-flop celebration into a pond this week and Rickie Fowler could've been forgiven for also joining the party. 

Fowler, 34, sent the crowd into an absolute frenzy during the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open

That is because he recorded the third ace of his career on hole No. 7 at TPC Scottsdale. 

Fowler, a fan-favourite ever since he made his debut in 2009, had 216 yards to the pin and connected perfectly with his 6-iron. 

His golf ball launched high into the air and when it landed it bounced a couple of times before rolling into the centre of the cup.

Cue a stunned reaction from Fowler. Cue high fives. 


At the time, he leapt up to 11-under for the tournament and was within four strokes of leader Scottie Scheffler

"Just go ahead and go in Rickie Fowler!" 

Pretty much sums it up. 

Watch the shot here:

Is Rickie back?

Fowler's struggles have been well-documented in recent years. But he appears to be making big strides towards potentially returning to winning ways. 

Incidentally, his last PGA Tour victory came here in 2019. Back then he had to overcome that monumentally brutal rules penalty. 

He has now returned to work with Butch Harmon. He's also parted ways with caddie Joe Skovron. 

Skovron is now looping for bright young talent Tom Kim

This writer is no swing expert but it's clear that Fowler's move has changed quite considerably. His hands are now much higher. 

And he's changed his putter, too.
