Does anyone remember 2011? That’s when Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, and Jason Day were grouped together for the first two rounds at Augusta. After the second round, Rory was in first, Jason was in second, and Rickie was T-7. I remarked at the time we were seeing the future of golf.

Rickie is reluctant to include himself in the Big Three/Big Four. He says he needs to win a major first. Perhaps so. But if he keeps playing well and winning, he’ll soon be joining the Big Three in their break from the peloton, and it won’t matter what anyone says or doesn’t say.
More on Rickie tomorrow.
