Rickie Fowler catches horrible plugged lie in Pinehurst bunker

Rickie Fowler got a lot of airtime today because of his attire. But his play has was solid throughout as well, including on his final hole of the day. Fowler was looking to finish on a high note, but he found the bunker on the 9th hole at Pinehurst No. 2, and caught a plugged lie on the slope of the trap. Yikes, take a look at this thing.

But being the professional that he is, Rickie Fowler would chop down on it and managed to get the ball on the green and two-putt for a bogey. It could have been a lot worse from that lie. It's these kind of saves that you can look back on when the week is over as a turning point. Will this be the start to a weekend triumph? It's, of course, too early to tell, but he is one of the few players in the clubhouse at even par or better as the afternoon wave begins to hit the course.
