CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Rickie Fowler is finally a winner on the PGA Tour.
Fowler, billed as one of the rising American stars, delivered a clutch shot on the 18th hole in a playoff for a 4-foot birdie to beat U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy and D.A. Points on Sunday in the Wells Fargo Championship.
The 23-year-old Fowler won in his 67th PGA Tour start as a pro. He already has become one of the most popular players, especially with the kids. Dressed in his Sunday orange, he closed with a 3-under 69 and got into a playoff when Points made his first bogey of the final round on the last hole.
The only other win as a pro for Fowler was last year in South Korea, when he beat McIlroy.
