Fowler ranked No.1 on list of 'Best-Mannered People'

Rickie Fowler fended off stiff competition to be named the Best Mannered Person 2017, it has been revealed.

The National League of Junior Cotillions announced on Tuesday its annual list of “Ten Best-Mannered People,” and Fowler found himself topping the charts.

The American was up against a wealth of other high-profile names including fellow golfer Matt Kuchar, Deshaun Watson, Meghan Markle, Aly Raisman, Selena Gomez, Joanna Gaines, Sadie Robertson, Thomas Rhett and David Beckham for the No. 1 spot.

The NLJC said its reason for awarding Fowler the top ranking was “for consistently well-mannered conduct both on and off the golf course.” The 10 individuals on this list are nominated by NLJC students and directors.

“The selections are made based on each person’s commitment to honour, dignity, and mannerly conduct,” NLJC President Charles Winters said in a news release, per Golf Digest. “We feel these ten individuals have distinguished themselves through excellence of character and conduct and applaud them for their contributions to society.”

Fowler now also has a leg up on one of his top competitors in golf, as Rory McIlroy was on this list last year but could only make the No. 7 spot.
