Las Vegas, Nevada (May 10, 2015)--Congratulations to Rickie Fowler, who works with Butch Harmon, who has won THE PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP with a blistering and gutsy final round and playoff performance. He played the final six holes of regulation in 6-under par and then the four holes during the playoff in 2-under par. He birdied the famed par 3 17th green twice in the playoff, including to clinch the win, and during the tournament he birdied the treacherous hole five of six times. Fowler and Harmon started working together prior to the 2014 season and last year Fowler finished in the top five in each major. Fowler credits Harmon with "transforming" his game.

"For many years, my left-to-right tee ball was basically a big slice," Fowler said in a recent Golf Digest article. "I'd wipe the clubface across the ball, and my timing had to be really on to get a predictable result. Then last May, Butch taught me to hit a real fade. Transformed my game."

Fowler is one of several PGA TOUR and LPGA Tour pros who works with Harmon at his school at Rio Secco Golf Club in Las Vegas. A great thing is that everyday players can also work with Harmon and/or his talented staff of professionals who also work with Tour players.

Again, congratulations to Rickie for his impressive win. It is most deserving.
