Tiger Woods' neck is still in pain.
Phil Mickleson's putter is still streaky.
Justin Rose is still searching/praying for a victory.
But Rickie Fowler—well he's just chillin' at the top of the leaderboard.
After two highly competitive rounds of play at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Course in Dublin, OH, 21-year-old Rickie Fowler leads the event after two brilliant rounds of 65-66 for a record tying 13-under par score through 36 holes.
Maybe it's the vigor of finally being legally of age that has Fowler pulling off trick shots and draining putts. Or perhaps it's the spectacular conditions of the golf course, which was designed by the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus, with a constant, watchful eye.
Fowler's game has been compared to Lanny Watkins; a fast, loose, and aggressive player.
PGA Tour announcers Kelly Tilghman and Nick Faldo called his last two rounds the ultimate symbol of "youthful confidence."
Call it what you want, but I'll just say this—Fowler is the real deal.
