Rickie nearly caught Rory

Rory McIlroy won the British Open but he was pressed in the final two rounds by former OSU golfer Rickie Fowler. Fowler finished at 15 under which was two shots behind McIlroy. Fowler tied for the lead briefly Saturday and Sunday he did good enough to get his third straight top five finish in a major this season. " I'm definitely pleased the way I hung in there, the way I fought it out," said Fowler. "I made some great par saves and tried to give Rory a little run at the end, but just got on the gas a little too late."

As for majors the PGA Championship in August is left for Fowler this season and you can add the Ryder Cup competition in September.
