Rickie Fowler dating Olin Browne's daughter

Posted at 4:19 PM by Jessica Marksbury | Categories: Rickie Fowler

One member of Rickie Fowler’s inner circle is undaunted by his new life in the spotlight -- his 18-year-old girlfriend, Alexandra Browne, daughter of PGA Tour player Olin. “She’s used to it,” Fowler said. “It’s nothing new to her, and it’s nice to have someone around like that.”
 
Fowler has made the transition from amateur play to Tour-level competition look easy, tying for seventh and second in his first two events as a professional. But he’s not worried about getting a big head—his mother and father are making sure his attitude stays in check. “My parents, they’re not people to get caught up in the attention and stuff,” Fowler said. “They keep me grounded and always have.”

If Fowler can manage to finish in the top 10 at this weekend's Children’s Miracle Network Classic in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., he’ll be the first player since Ryan Moore to gain exemption on the PGA Tour without having to go through Q school, and only the seventh player since 1980.
