The Golf Channel’s Steve Sands reported that Rickie Fowler was involved in a car accident late Tuesday night near his home in Jupiter, Fl.
Fowler, who took to social media around 11:30 PM tweeted that he and a buddy were ‘Ok’ after being involved in a car accident on Tuesday evening.
Fowler, who was the driver of the car and the passenger (unknown) were taken to J.F.K. Medical Center where Fowler received treatment for minor cuts and abrasions to his forehead. Both were released late Tuesday night. No citation was issued for the incident.
With seemingly more and more athletes taking ill-advised chances these days off the field, court or course, leading to accidents, arrests or even worse. Lets hope that Fowler is not falling into a trend that could derail a promising career over something meaningless.
Of course, this could be just a one-off innocent accident that occurred as Fowler has shown no signs to the present of straying too wild off the course.
What are your thoughts on Fowler’s accident? A one time incident or a prelude into something more?
