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.
