This is Rickie Fowler’s Open

ERIN, Wis. — While Hideki Matsuyama tried his hardest to burn Erin Hills to the ground with a 7-under 65 on Friday, playing partner Rickie Fowler just tried to hang on. Fowler started out hot but faded down the stretch as he attempted to extend his first-round lead. He didn’t, in fact he lost it, but he also didn’t play himself out of the tournament.
