Rickie has a proven knack for "firsts." After all, which other professional golfer has a background not in competitive golf, but rather motocross racing? Fortunately for fans of the new golf generation, Rickie traded in his dirt bike for a golf cart at the age of 14. And he hasn't looked back since.
In 2008, Rickie became the only player in history to be the NCAA Player of the Year as a freshman and turned pro following his second year at Oklahoma State University in 2009. He had a strong presence on the PGA Tour in 2010 earning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year and a spot on the 2011 US Ryder Cup Team. During his first season on Tour, Rickie had seven top-10 finishes and a 32nd-place finish in the FedExCup standings.
His momentum and style carried Rickie to his first win as a professional when he won the OneAsia Tour's Korea Open in October 2011 setting him up for big things in 2012. During this year, Rickie enjoyed his best finish among seven Major Championship starts, with a fifth place finish at The Open Championship at Royal St. George's
Rickie's persistence and skill led him to his first PGA Tour win at the Wells Fargo Championship in 2012. His win came in his 72nd start on Tour and was his 16th top-10 finish. In 2013, Rickie made the cut in 18 of 22 starts, with a 3rd place finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational being the best of his five top-10 finishes.
In 2014, Rickie finished fifth at the Masters and runner-up at the US Open.
For us, it's gratifying to know the #1 choice of professional golfers is in the hands of a true sensation and one of the most dynamic players on the PGA Tour.
We look forward to being there every step of the way.
