Rickie Fowler (born December 13, 1988 in Anaheim, California) is estimated to make about $1,700,000 off the golf course through such things as endorsements. His golf winnings on the course bring in another $3,400,000.
Fowler went through his early teens interested in both motocross, and golf (which he began playing at the age of 3). After a dirtbike accident at 15, however, golf became his focus, and by his junior year in high school he took the California state championship.
In 2007 he became NCAA Player of the Year, at Oklahoma State University, and later that year entered the Walker Cup, playing for the United States in the international competition. He became the number one ranked amateur golfer in the world in 2007, and held that title for 36 weeks, into 2008.
In May 2012, Fowler captured the Wells Fargo Championship for his first PGA Tour win.
