Rickie Fowler giving back.

Rickie Fowler isn’t shy about his love for the state of Oklahoma and that was highlighted last week by a trip to Moore, OK to pay the victims of the 2013 tornado a visit.

Fowler hosted a golf clinic last Monday in Oklahoma City — golfers from Moore, Westmoore, and Southmoore golf teams were invited to attend.

One Moore golfer named Jake Reddington was especially excited.

“This is something I’m definitely going to remember. This is the coolest thing. Whoever would have thought seven or eight months ago, I’d survive a tornado, get to meet Rickie Fowler. It’s a blessing from something that shouldn’t have been a blessing. It’s inspirational. Everything from even going to the same college I want to go to, he has done.”

Fowler was just as pumped.

“It’s pretty awesome.” Coming in and doing appearances, this stands out for me, to come back to Oklahoma, a state that is close to me. Being I was down the road in Dallas when the tornado came through and tried to help out as much as we could. To be able to come back and hang out with some high school golf kids, pretty cool.

“It’s good to see them come out and see some smiles on some faces and have a good time.”

Fowler also invited him to walk inside the ropes at the pro-am for next week’s Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines.
