Biking Beginnings

Beloved BikerBeloved Biker

Rickie Fowler is like the Justin Bieber of the golf course. He began playing golf at age three, but into his early teens Rickie Fowler's favorite sport was motocross. Golf was secondary. That changed when Rickie was 14, when he suffered injuries in a dirtbike accident. After that, golf moved to the forefront, and Rickie moved to the forefront of golf.

Rickie entered international competition in 2007, too, playing for the United States in the Walker Cup matches. He compiled a 3-1 record; on a return trip to the Walker Cup in 2009, Rickie went 4-0. Between those trips, Rickie made it through qualifying and into the 2008 U.S. Open, where he made the cut. He spent parts of 2007 and 2008 as the No. 1-ranked amateur golfer in the world.

Rickie completed his sophomore season of college in mid-2009, played in the Walker Cup and then turned professional. His pro debut, at age 20, occurred at the Nationwide Tour Albertsons Boise Open, where he missed the cut. But Rickie had better luck at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational, where got into a playoff before finishing second.

Rickie received a sponsor invitation to play in the 2009 PGA Tour Frys Open and made the most of it, again getting into a playoff before finishing second. Rickie earned enough money in several PGA Tour appearances at the end of 2009 to acquire partial status for 2010, the improved that status at 2009 Q-School.

considering rooney is a man united legend, and has scored the all time number of goals, i think people are being a bit harsh on him at the moment. i watched carrack's testimonial not long ago, and in honesty i couldn't really tell him apart from those who have retired but his heart is in united and he's a class player. maybe it's time for him to step aside for the newer players to start building on united's success, and play less games but the lads on social media calling him out for every second he's not training, or demanding we drop him i think need to calm down. this is a proper legend, and we should respect his commitment to the team. thoughts?
