Farmers Insurance® has proudly sponsored PGA TOUR star Rickie Fowler since 2013. Like Farmers, he knows a thing or two because he’s seen a thing or two. He prepares for everything, so he can handle almost anything on the golf course.
From perfecting his golf swing to establishing fashion trends, Rickie is proof that everyone gets better with experience. Learn more below about how his persistent drive to improve has made him the player and the person he is today.
Farmers Insurance® has proudly sponsored Rickie Fowler since 2013. His journey to PGA TOUR stardom began in California at the Murrieta Valley Golf Range under the tutelage of his grandfather Taka Tanaka and coach Barry McDonnell.
Before turning pro in 2009, Fowler was regarded as one of the top amateurs in the world, reaching number one in the World Amateur Golf Rankings in 2007. He attended Oklahoma State University, where he won the 2008 Ben Hogan Award, given annually to the best player in college golf. Fowler pays tribute to his alma mater by wearing orange on Sundays. Since then, Rickie has become one of the top players in the game with eight wins worldwide and a regular participant in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup.
Fowler has partnered with Farmers® in numerous natural disaster recovery efforts. He made a special effort for the residents of Moore, Oklahoma, when a 2013 tornado devastated their city. In addition to matching a $100,000 donation for the Red Cross, he surprised golf teams at three local high schools with a clinic and new Cobra golf bags. Fowler also joined Farmers in rebuilding homes in Sea Bright, New Jersey, following Hurricane Sandy and in Houston, Texas, following Hurricane Harvey.
One of the PGA TOUR's marquee events, the Farmers Insurance Open® is held each January at Torrey Pines Golf Course in La Jolla, California. Past winners include illustrious golfing icons like Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Tiger Woods - with seven titles - and San Diego native Phil Mickelson, who has won his hometown event three times. Since the tournament's inception in 1952, over $40 million has been raised for charities in the San Diego area. Learn more about the Farmers Insurance Open at farmersinsuranceopen.com .
