Rickie Fowler will stay upbeat as he goes in search of more silverware, after admitting that 2018 has been a disappointing year. Fowler recorded six top-10 finishes this year, finished second in the Masters and qualified for the USA Ryder Cup , but throughout his career he has just four PGA Tour victories to his name.

That is not enough by Fowler’s own high standards and is something he is determined to improve on as he prepares to defend the Heteamro World Challenge this week, the last tournament he won 12 months ago.
“I want to win more,” he said. “If I went off of my checklist or what I ultimately want to do, I haven’t had a successful season. “So I want to win more majors, I want to win more golf tournaments. But in golf, other than Tiger winning at a 30 percent win rate, that doesn’t just happen.”
Even so Fowler remains upbeat and will stay positive in his search for more trophies. “You have to kind of look at the glass half-full, especially if you’re talking about staying motivated and keep wanting to move forward. If you look at the negatives or downside of not winning, man, it’s going to be a long road,” he added.
