Rickie Fowler makes ace, buys beer for the media

It’s official: Rickie Fowler is the biggest bro on the PGA Tour.

After drilling an ace on the final hole during Thursday’s opening round at the Quicken Loans National, Fowler did something nobody saw coming: he bought a tub of beer for every member of the media.

What even prompted Fowler to do such a thing? Typically when a player makes an ace, he buys a round – that’s one of the golden rules of golf. But to buy beer for the media tent? Wow, that’s something else.

Fowler’s ace wasn’t the only one on Day 1. Ryo Ishikawa made an ace at the par-3 fourth hole that took him to 8 under par, where he finished his round with a 63 to take a share of the day one lead. No word on his drink of choice.

Cheers Rickie.
