Rickie Fowler Fights Back Tears Following Playoff Loss

Hideki Matsuyama Wins Phoenix Open
Hideki Matsuyama beat Rickie Fowler on the fourth playoff hole to win the Phoenix Open on Sunday at TPC Scottsdale.

Rickie Fowler was hoping for a storybook ending at the Waste Management Phoenix Open Sunday.

His playoff loss to Hideki Matsuyama with his family in attendance left the 27-year-old in an emotional state during his post-round press conference.

"The hard part is having all my friends and family and grandpa here who haven’t seen me win," he said, choking up. "But I will be able to hang with them tonight. I’ll be alright. With how good I’m playing, I know I can win. That’s the hard part."
