Rickie Fowler is the best golfer of the major season (so far)
Only seven golfers are under par after the first three majors of the season. Here's a look at who they are.
After the US Open 24 golfers had made the cut at each of the year's first two majors. That number is down to 19 after the British Open.
Here's a look.
Rickie Fowler: 18 under
Rory McIlroy: 11 under
Jim Furyk: 9 under
Adam Scott: 9 under
Jordan Spieth: 3 under
Jimmy Walker: 2 under
Justin Rose: 1 under
Single digits over par
Henrik Stenson: 1 over
Matt Kuchar: 3 over
Chris Kirk: 3 over
Martin Kaymer: 4 over
Jason Day: 6 over
Francesco Molinari: 9 over
Double digits over par
Louis Oosthuizen: 10 over
Bill Haas: 11 over
Brandt Snedeker: 12 over
Stewart Cink: 14 over
Gary Woodland: 15 over
Kevin Stadler: 17 over
Par for 12 rounds of the first three majors is 856 and Fowler is sitting currently at 838. That's pretty monstrous considering the courses these thing have been played on.
Also when the list is you and Rory McIlroy in terms of golfers under par, that seems like a list I want to find myself on.
Who are the surprises on this list? To me it's probably Stewart Cink, Chris Kirk, and Kevin Stadler. Also that Spieth is under par. That's insanely impressive.
More fun with numbers here.
First-round leader: McIlroy and Molinari (6 under)
Second-round leader: Kaymer, Furyk, and Rose (5 under)
Third-round leader: Fowler (12 under)
Fourth-round leader: Furyk and Scott (7 under)
Should be noted that nobody else is even within five of that Saturday Fowler number. Moving-day Fowler as I call him.
By the way, last only 13 golfers made the cut at all four majors.
