Scary times for the US Open runner-up Rickie Fowler earlier this week. After a vacation at Baker's Bay, Fowler was in a car accident near his home in Jupiter, Fla. on Tuesday.

He tweeted early on Wednesday morning that he was all right:

According to Golf Channel's Steve Sands, nobody was seriously hurt.

"Fowler, who was driving, was treated for minor cuts and abrasions on his forehead (near his hairline) by doctors at JFK Medical and then released Tuesday night. The passenger was also treated at the hospital and released without any injuries."
