It had been more than an hour since Australian golfer Adam Scott had taken the Australian PGA title and had been presented with his trophy when the media found American Rickie Fowler still standing along the championship greens and signing autographs for the fans.
Fowler, who finished as the runner up to Scott in the Australian PGA at Pines, looked far from bitter at having lost the title to the weather. Fowler, at one point, was in a superior position to challenge Scott but the inclement weather, which forced the officials to stop the play for some time, halted the momentum he had built up and enabled Scott to build on his one stroke lead as he ran out the winner with four shots.
However, the youngster who had been hailed as the new Tiger Woods when he first burst onto the scene was happy that he was able to share the space with Scott. Rickie Fowler stated that it was obvious that he was not going to win the title but it was still a pleasure, being able to stand alongside Adam Scott and seeing him win the title in front of his home fans. He also hailed the support they had received throughout the weekend and mentioned that it had been the highlight of the event for him.
The rookie American also mentioned that it had been a great event, the fans had thronged to the course in their numbers and although most of them had come to see Scott, he was still happy that they cheered for him along the way.
Rickie Fowler stated that he immensely enjoyed his time at Gold Coast and he was looking forward to coming back very soon and would love to come back next year for the event if he is invited.

Jim Furyk kept his fifty nine behind with a round which was ten shots higher in BMW Championship. An opportunity to win was all that mattered that made Saturday a huge success. Jim recovered from a slow beginning with 3 birdies in a 5 hole stretch across the turn. A 3 putt bogey from thirty feet on the par five 18th pushed him to settle for a two under sixty nine and a 1 shot lead over German golfer Steve Stricker.
Jim Furyk told that the target was to go out and shoot a good number, give him a spot to win this golf event. It could have been better out there. He dropped that shot at 18 he was disappointed for that. Probably, it was one of the easier holes of the day. But he got himself in good spot, so rather than dwell on the final hole, he would probably tend to want to think about tomorrow and what he have to do to try to win a golf event.
It was a different ending from Friday, when Jim Furyk shoot a wedge to three feet for birdie on the final hole (number nine) for a twelve under fifty nine, becoming just the 6th golf player in the history of the PGA Tour to score the magic number of the game.
None anticipated another round such as that from Jim, even though Matt Kuchar had a sixty one early in the day when conditions were favorable – with fast greens, firm fairways and increasing wind. 3 other golfers who had fifty nine in an earlier round came after with anything better than 68, but Jim did quite enough to offer himself a scope to end 3 years without a win.
