Fowler, billed as one of the rising American stars, delivered a
clutch shot on the 18th hole in a playoff for a 4-foot birdie to
beat U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points on Sunday in
the Wells Fargo Championship.
The 23-year-old Fowler won in his 67th PGA Tour start as a pro.
He already has become one of the most popular players, especially
with the kids. Dressed in his Sunday orange, he closed with a
3-under 69 and got into a playoff when Points made his first bogey
of the final round on the last hole.
The only other win as a pro for Fowler was last year in South
Korea, when he beat McIlroy.
