Six-time PGA major champion Nick Faldo is now claiming Rickie Fowler is shooting too many commercials. Fowler addressed his frustration this week that he may miss the Masters for the first time since 2010. So that’s when Sir Nick Faldo tweeted this bomb:
Good news is if he misses the Masters he can shoot another six commercials that week! 😳 https://t.co/kgGcmaZUJO— Sir Nick Faldo (@NickFaldo006) March 2, 2021
There’s real potential here that Faldo just wants to light a fire under the major-less Fowler. The kid’s got plenty of talent, but he’s yet to put it all together to capture a victory on the big stage.
Or Nick Faldo, as accomplished as he is, is jealous because Rickie Fowler can be called a “star” without winning big tournaments. Faldo was born in 1958, so there’s a real possibility he just inadvertently went full boomer. Lakers Hall of Famer Shaquille O’Neal also gives these “old man” takes every once in a while about a modern-day big man.
If we looked like Rickie Fowler (whom the ladies love, in case you’re unaware), would we turn down all the endorsement deals companies offer? Winning major championships or not, Rickie Fowler finds ways to be major. Don’t be a hater, Sir, (even though we still love you too.)
