Winning a major is Rickie Fowler's main focus

Last year Rickie Fowler showed the world he can golf with the best of them. This year he wants to win a major championship – which would help him be considered as good as Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy.

The 27-year-old American is sixth in the World Rankings, and is part of a group of talented young players who have recently surged up the ranks to dominate the game.

“I may not be ranked as high as them, but I’m close,” said Fowler. “A major would help me become a solid part of the talk. The last two years have been very good steps for me to continue to move forward by having the finishes that I did in the majors in 2014 and to get the wins that I did last year."

Fowler won three tournaments in 2015, including the Players Championship. But he has found a constant wall put up whenever he begins to pull clear of the crowd, namely Spieth, Day and McIlroy.

“The game has continued to get better. I feel like I played very well through the last half of last year, through the fall, and I’m really looking forward to getting 2016 started.,” Fowler said.

“In the Bahamas and Kapalua, shooting I think 20- and 21-under, I didn’t come close to a win. Just shows you how good the guys are playing. You have to be on top of your game to have a chance.”

Who knows; perhaps 2016 could finally be Rickie Fowler's year.
