Rickie Fowler last visited the Philadelphia area in September, wearing the official uniform of the United States team that defeated Great Britain and Ireland thanks to a wonderful performance by the former Oklahoma State star. He showed up again in the area Wednesday for his Pro-Am round at the AT&T National wearing a white golf shirt with green and purple polka dots, a purple and white cap covering a mop of brown hair, and purple and green golf shoes. Yes, Fowler, 21, has created a style that makes him one of the most noticeable players on the PGA Tour.

Rickie Fowler could have kicked off the next stage of his golf life months ago, but there was one goal remaining before he could conclude a brilliant amateur career. And he couldn't have done it any better, standing in the middle of the first fairway at Merion Golf Club with his teammates as the sun set behind the club's stately trees, and taking part in celebrating his second Walker Cup. With the 20-year-old Fowler going 4-0 in his matches, the United States dominated from Saturday morning to late yesterday afternoon and gained a 16 1/2-9 1/2 victory over Great Britain and Ireland in the 42d matches.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - Holes-in-one by the winner, by playing partners and by an octogenarian highlighted a record-shattering par-3 tournament. The field combined for nine holes-in-one, dwarfing the record of five set in 2002. Jimmy Walker dropped one at No. 2 and, at 8-under, won by three shots. His score broke by one stroke the record set by Art Wall (1965) and Gay Brewer (1973). Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler, playing in the same group, thrilled the crowd moments apart when they each aced No. 4. But no one got a bigger cheer than 80-year-old Gary Player, whose hole-out at No. 7 gave him a record four for his career and made him the oldest acer in tournament history.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - Kevin Na didn't feel comfortable about anything Saturday except his name atop the leader board at the Players Championship. Na rolled in a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for one of only three rounds without a bogey on a tough day at the TPC Sawgrass. It gave him a 4-under 68 and a 1-shot lead over Matt Kuchar as he goes after the richest prize on the PGA Tour - a five-year exemption and a spot in all the majors. For all his practice swings and waggles, even purposely missing the ball so he could start over, Na pieced together a brilliant round free of bogeys.

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. - Padraig Harrington found a way to take some of the attention away from Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy on Thursday. He made six birdies on the tough back nine of Bethpage Black and opened the FedEx Cup playoffs with a 7-under 64 for a 1-shot lead at The Barclays. Harrington came to life on the back nine with four straight birdies to cap off his 64, giving him a 1-shot lead over Nick Watney and Brian Harman among the early starters. The hotter it became, the crustier the greens were, and it was unlikely anyone would catch him. No one did. Sergio Garcia was part of the group at 66, while defending champion Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler were in the group at 67. Thousands of fans chased after Woods and McIlroy, in the marquee group based on their standing in the FedEx Cup - Woods at No. 1, McIlroy at No. 3. Woods scratched out a 68. McIlroy had three birdies through six holes, but let the good start get away from him and settled for a 69.   LPGA COQUITLAM, British Columbia - Top-ranked Yani Tseng shot a 6-under 66 to take a 1-stroke lead after the first round of the Canadian Women's Open.

MR. 58 TEES OFF at 8:10 a.m. Thursday. Eagles punter Donnie Jones, the oldest player on the team, will be in Pittsburgh on Thursday preparing for a preseason game. Still, he will be following what Jim Furyk does at the Wyndham Championships. So will the rest of the golf world. Because, the last time he played, Furyk shot the lowest score in the history of the PGA Tour. "Golll-eee, man!" said Jones, a Louisiana native. "I've never even shot even par! My best golf day was probably the day I shot 76. Jim Furyk, if you're listening: That was a hell of a round, man. " Among the four major American sports, kickers and punters tend to be the best golfers.

SPRINGFIELD, N.J. - Admit it. You heart Rickie Fowler, too. The matinee idol of the PGA Tour is the unquestioned star of a series of insurance commercials in which professional golfers are hooked up to a lie detector and questioned by a woman, who clearly acts as if she finds Fowler attractive. At one point she compliments his "beautiful face," then jots "I heart RF" on the polygraph paper. Who can blame her? Fowler is a swashbuckling sweetheart with icy, almond eyes who adores his fans and his life.

OAKMONT, Pa. – The last memory most people have of Jordan Spieth is watching him dunk two golf balls into Rae's Creek in the final round of the Masters, resulting in a quadruple bogey 7 at the diabolical par-3 12th of Augusta National Golf Club and knocking himself out of a chance for a second straight green jacket. The reaction was swift and harsh. Most thought the back-nine collapse would affect him for a long time, maybe forever, that he always would think back to those two splashed shots whenever a clutch effort was required in a major or in any tournament for that matter.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - It's anybody's ballgame, and that might be the best thing for the ballgame. "I think it's fun for the game to see how close it is, and everyone has their own little favorites," said Jason Day, the new world No. 1. "Some people are Rory (McIlroy). Some people are me. Some people are Jordan Spieth. Some people are Rickie Fowler. " Sure enough, a quick walk around Augusta National reveals allegiances as disparate as an Olympics. There's a couple decked out in Nike, like McIlroy, a dude in adidas shoes, like Day, and dozens of kids sporting UnderArmour like Spieth and the garish Puma colors and flat-brimmed caps that scream, "Rickie!"

AUGUSTA, Ga. - They eulogized Tiger Woods on Tuesday. With fond remembrances and wistful words, they gently laid his legend to rest. It was fitting that the ceremony for the passing of his golfing life would be held here, because here is where began for Tiger. In 1997, he set the Masters record at 18-under, and that forever changed the game. In an effort to Tiger-proof the sport, courses got longer, fairways narrower, and greens faster. When that backfired, everyone got fitter.

STEVE STRICKER stood in the fairway on the second hole at Merion, one shot back on Sunday at the U.S. Open. He needed to nail this shot. Instead, Stricker shanked a 4-iron. His ball went screaming over Ardmore Avenue, out of bounds, and Stricker fell out of contention with a triple-bogey. An indicting red line cut an ugly scar across TV monitors worldwide. Tommy Roy, the man responsible for the red line, felt his heart sink. "Probably the most dramatic and most painful Protracer shot of all time," Roy said.

Rory McIlroy won the British Open on Sunday, completing three legs of golf's career Grand Slam, with only the Masters still to check off on his to-do list. The Northern Ireland native is 25, personable, hits the ball a ton and plays an exciting game. On this side of the ocean, however, McIlroy's win was greeted with little more than passing interest. Dedicated golf fans - at least those willing to plunk in front of the television for a tournament rather than pursue the unforgiving ball around the course - continue to follow the game, but their numbers are dwindling.

PINEHURST, N.C. - When Martin Kaymer won his first major, the story wasn't totally about him. That's what happens when somebody grounds a club in the sand on the last hole of regulation to penalize himself out of what became a two-man playoff. See: Dustin Johnson. That was almost 4 years ago. And the way Kaymer's career had trended down, some wondered if he'd ever win another of the only four tournaments that truly elevate resumes. That's also been known to happen in this fickle, silly game.
