Rickie Fowler Cards Hole-In-One, Buys Golf Media Beer at Quicken Loans
Rickie Fowler knows how to make an exit.
On the ninth hole (Fowler's last) of his opening round at the Quicken Loans National, Fowler's tee shot on the 184-yard par 3 got a nice bounce from the fringe and disappeared into the hole.
Fowler already had four birdies and two bogeys on the day to go along with his walk-off eagle. His opening 67 left him four shots behind early clubhouse leaders Retief Goosen of South Africa and Ryo Ishikawa of Japan. Fowler is coming off a T30 finish at the British Open at St. Andrews, one week after his dramatic come-from-behind win at the Scottish Open.

UPDATE: After closing out his round with the ace, Fowler celebrated by sending a bucket full of beer to the press tent with the message "It's not a mortgage for a year, but enjoy a cold one on me! Cheers! Rickie."
