Rickie Fowler Changes His Own Spikes
By Kickntrue on 5/20/10
According to Stewart Cink's Twitter (imagine this post 5 years ago) young Rickie Fowler changes his own golf spikes.

99.9% of me says, "What you are thinking? This isn't news." The thing is- if it isn't, why am I so interested by it?

I think it's because a couple things actually happened when I saw it. First- a realization that PGA Tour pros don't have to change their own spikes. Once you actually think about it- it's obvious. Changing worn golf spikes SUCKS. I've spent hours with a drill trying to dig out broken cleats. I'm guessing the guys on Tour don't let them get that far, but still... Once you realize that nobody in their right mind would change their own spikes if they didn't have to- it makes it interesting that Rickie does it himself, or at least did in this case. Why? Does Puma not have a Tour rep on hand as early as Tuesday? That seems fairly logical, right? Does Rickie not have an entourage? I don't think you can make your caddie change your spikes but it seems like a job you could give to Turtle (sorry to reference such a sucky show). He has to have some childhood lackey buddy that lives off him and provides video game entertainment options somewhere doesn't he?

Finally... ... I've got to stop. I just wrote 200 words on why Rickie Fowler may change his own spikes, and that's just ridiculous.

I always thought that tour pros just played with new shoes every round....

I change my own spikes. It's easy. Just get yourself a good spike wrench, and make sure you buy quality spikes.

that show blows... maybe he is not a pompus ass. maybe he enjoys doing things like washing his own dishes... the little things can help take your mind off bigger things.

Breaking news ... Phil wipes his own ass. That's right ... he doesn't go to a tour tent for this service. Does it himself and with his right (not left!) hand ... *gasp* ..... Good grief.

Okay, Props to Fowler for that. I ripped him in another article earlier and will give him that. (but he still needs to lose that freakin' justin bieber - 12 year-old style hair.... sorry I couldn't resist! )

I'm guessing Ricky doesn't go all that long between changing spikes. Newish spikes are a lot easier to change than ones that have been in your shoes for a year or two and are totally worn out and encrusted with dirt. I'm just saying...

@Swingem - haven't you figured it out? It's complete jealousy! My dome can't comepete. The singular bang I have left has no absolutely no reason to stay, all the rest bailed on me years ago...

This might be the most trivial thing I've ever read on on a golf website.

Yeah....I wish the hairstyles that are in for kids these days were in when I was a kid. I've got this crazy widow's peak that only looks good in one style....baseball cap.

lcgolfer64 says:
@bjohn - You're a lucky man, at least you got enough to define a 'widow's peak' I'm working on trying desperately to bring in style the 'reverse mohawk' look - zero luck so far...
(think: 'reverse' as in - negative of a photograph, yeah it's defintely a baseball cap style - sorry for the bad imagery, haha)
