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.

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.

A recent comment on a video gave me this idea , of writing about this whole scenario  the comment was something like this Messi + Ronaldo = Zlatan It was something that made me happy , cuz i'm a Zlatan fan myself , but keeping that aside I'll be honest in stating the reasons due to which Zlatan is considered better among fans  1st - Tired of Messi vs Ronaldo ; For those of you tired of the endless Messi vs Ronaldo debate Zlatan is the middle way , when Zlatan was asked for a word to describe Messi and Ronaldo  he said for Messi - Fantastic , for Ronaldo - Good ( he'd definitely prefer messi since he was in barca , so definitely against Real Madrid , but i'll skip that ) , but when asked about one word for Zlatan - "WOW!" that was his answer 2nd - If you believe in extraordinary and Jaw-dropping stuff; If we talk about Messi and Ronaldo we'll think constant goal scorers and team players and who deliver something great evry time the team needs it , but Zlatan he may also score regularly not as frequent as Messi or Ronaldo , but every time he scores it's another jaw dropping goal , whether that 32 yard bicycle kick vs England or extraordinary volleys Zlatan is Zlatan 3rd Zlatan does things nobody does; You won't see Ronaldo having fun with reporters or Messi bad mouthing his manager even when he is wrong , Zlatan doesn't cares,  like who can forget the epic reply to Arsene Wenger on asking Zlatan to play a trial game , -" ZLATAN doesn't do Auditions" If some of you guys don't agree with me no problem , everybody has their own opinion , and if you don't agree with me cuz you don't know about any of those Zlatan goals or interviews , then you should definitely search the internet for - Extraordinary Zlatan  ZLATAN may had not won the -ballon d'or , but has won large no of trophies and league titles  search for zlatan ibrahimovic - titles and trophies for that

Well for me, I think totally! Inside that is. When a guy says girls can't play sports I think THEY can't be cheerleaders. But if a guy says girls CAN play sports, yep, they could be cheerleaders
