Rickie Fowler will make his 2019 debut this week at the Farmers Insurance Open with a ball change.
TaylorMade announced Monday that Fowler has signed a multi-year contract to play the company’s new golf ball, the TP5x.
Fowler reached out to TaylorMade in the fall of 2018 and expressed an interest in playing the ball, which has already been put in play by Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy (TP5) and Jason Day.
It’s the first time in Fowler’s amateur or professional career that he’s switched golf balls. He previously played Titleist’s Pro V1 model.
30-year-old World No.11 Rickie Fowler last won at the 2017 Honda Classic, almost two years back.
