Rickie Fowler made a subtle tweak to his ‘Tiger Woods putter’

Fowler returned to his usual Newport 2 GSS putter at the U.S. Open-he gave the backup a shot at Memorial-but had Cameron reps make one minor tweak to the face that had nothing to do with loft or lie angle. The “cherry bomb” was popularized by Tiger Woods, who started using the Newport 2 GSS in 1999 at the then-GTE Bryson Nelson Classic. Prior to shipping the putter to Woods, Cameron noticed the head weight was two swing-weight points too heavy, which led him to mill a dot in the back cavity and another in the heel of the face to get the weight just right. Fowler’s putter has similar dots in the cavity and face, but that’s not the only connection this particular flatstick has to the 15-time major winner’s prized Newport 2.Fowler made a trip to Cameron’s putter studio prior to the 2014 season to analyze his putting stroke and mechanics. While looking for a putter, Fowler and Paul Vizanko, Cameron’s fitting specialist, made a trip to the department’s mezzanine to see if there was anything that caught his eye.

Fowler opens with impressive 66 at U.S. Open

Rickie Fowler takes being called the best player without a major championship as a compliment and would rather be remembered for what he does off the golf course than on it. He opened the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach with an impressive 5-under 66 to tie for second place with Louis Oosthuizen, Aaron Wise, and Xander Schauffele on Thursday, putting his resume back in the spotlight. Coming into the 119th U.S. Open Fowler had 10 top-10s in majors to his name without saluting. In 2014 he was inside the top-5 of all four majors. Lately, he’s now 20-under in opening rounds at majors since 2017, the best of any player.
