Everything has come full circle for Rickie Fowler.
Less than two weeks after winning his first PGA tournament in four years, the golfer was back full circle and made a big purchase.
The 34-year-old bought the Murrieta Valley Golf Course in Southern California, the same driving range he frequented as a child and where he first learned to play golf.

Fowler went to the practice field with his grandfather, Yutaka, who gave him lessons, but when time ran out, it was Fowler’s father who made sure his son had more work to do.
«My dad would give me the sand for maintenance and the gravel for the parking lot in exchange for me hitting balls.» Fowler told Golfweek.

The driving range opened in 1992, just four years after Fowler’s birth. Now, thanks to him, it is not closing its doors anytime soon.
«I always wanted the range to exist and to be open for the next generation,» he said. «I wanted the kids to have the same opportunity as me if they were interested.»
Fowler once said during one of his high school tournaments that he wanted to buy the range.
