It has been 15 years since Rickie Fowler left Oklahoma State University to become a professional golfer, and he still hasn’t won a major golf tournament. Fowler, now 35, has ten wins on the PGA Tour, though, and he has also come close to winning majors on several occasions.

Fowler’s success at the 2023 U.S. Open has many golf fans and sports bettors looking forward to the 2024 U.S. Open. His odds to win this year’s U.S. Open are currently set at 200-to-1. It has some people thinking about potentially using their sportsbook bonuses to place wagers on Fowler to capture his elusive first major tournament win.

In 2014, Fowler finished tied for second at both the U.S. Open and the British Open and finished tied for third at the PGA Championship. In 2018, he finished in second place at The Masters. And in 2023, he finished tied for fifth at the U.S. Open after shooting a record-setting 8-under 62 at Los Angeles Country Club during the first round. Rickie Fowler and the U.S. Open will forever be linked because of that performance in particular.

Following his strong performance at the 2023 U.S. Open, Fowler recorded his first PGA Tour win since the 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open by winning the Rocket Mortgage Classic in July 2023. It helped put him back into the spotlight and enabled him to move up to No. 40 on the PGA Tour’s Official World Golf Ranking list. It may have also given him the confidence to win the traditional Par 3 Contest at Augusta National Golf Club in 2024 before the start of The Masters.

So, will Fowler show up in form for the 2024 U.S. Open? It’s scheduled to take place at the Pinehurst No. 2 golf course at the Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst, NC from June 13 through 16.

Fowler missed some major tournaments since 2020 due to an ongoing slump that was seemingly threatening his golf career at one point. Hse’s fully expected to head out onto the course in Pinehurst to see if he can put up a repeat performance of his 2023 U.S. Open play. His rebound has been one of the PGA Tour’s best stories.
