Simple, Rickie is my homeboy because before him nobody would have ever thought of going to the course wearing orange on orange on orange, Rickie rocked it and now EVERYBODY wants to rock it. For this, Rickie is my homeboy!

Sean said...

Glad to see someone finally pick a young kid, wish corporate america would learn from Corey Pavin. Very excited for him, watch out Europe, you are in trouble!!!!

Rickie Fowler has what we all wish we had... a great game, confidence, swagger, and fearlessness on the course. Not too many players can say they have all that. Besides that, not too many can pull off the outfits he wears. Rickie, for real, I have met him, is a great person. I dont think the guy would stop signing autographs as long as there was a person near. A great attitude and great game will carry him along way. That is why I am one of his homeboys!

In the past, I've run into problems when claiming that Rickie Fowler was my homeboy. Reactions have ranged from indifference to being chased down dark alleys by affirmed Rickie Fowler homeboys.

I believe I need this shirt to help add credence to my claims of homeboy-ness with Hip Rickie. A bright orange shirt would surely give me the appropriate amount of credibility, and perhaps, just maybe, spring me up a notch on the social golf ladder.

I drink medium pulp orange juice every morning with my breakfast. My best friend writes for the Orange County Register. I painted an orange accent wall behind my bar that is stocked with Bacardi O. The Netherlands' orange uniform is my favorite soccer kit. I need a Rickie Fowler t-shirt to wear to the 2011 Orange Bowl in Miami.

Bobby said...

The simple fact that Captain Corey picked the young Phenom is a Great thing for golf. The US team needs new life injected into it. The young guns bring the swagger and no quit attitude to the older players. Rickie brings FLASH to the Game! Great sponsor in PUMA not to mention his overall GAME.. I'm 39 and I wear his Orange Monoline hat and my daughter just looks at me and says "your not 20 dad" That alone is why Rickie is my HOMEBOY!

Kevin said...

This one's a no brainer for me. Rickie is my homeboy because he's the chillest bro on tour. I'm 25, I've been playing for a few years and I'm just starting to watch in the last two years. Rickie is what we need- a sweet bro who can kill it on the course and relate to the fans under 30 who play and watch the game. Hit me up on twitter bro. Good luck at the Cup, Rickie. Get some!

Rickie is my homeboy because I have been following him since my good friend played against him in high school in California. After the match he told me that "some kid with long hair named Rickie" tore him apart on the course, and he told me to look out for him. After that, I started to follow his career at OSU, then saw him on TV playing in Justin Timberlakes tournament in Vegas. Me and my friend both go to Arizona State now and we saw all 4 of his rounds in the Frys.com open where he finished T-2 in a playoff with Troy Matteson and Jamie Lovemark. Since then, we also saw him at the Waste Management Open in Phoenix where he finished in 2nd, and at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut (my home state) where he finished T-14th. Clearly Rickie is my homeboy! Ryder Cup!!!

Deanne said...

Rickie is my homeboy because not only does he bring a great sense of style to the game but he brings a sense of fun while playing a great game! The next few years are going to be interesting to see what he brings to the game.

I would absolutely love to have this t-shirt because, well, Rickie is My Homeboy!! I love Rickie Fowler so much because of not only his looks, but his mindset. I am a firm believer in positive attitudes, as I am a young competitive golfer myself. He carries himself like a truly great athlete, and I admire him immensly for that. I would be honored to win this t-shirt to support what a wonderful golfer and person Rickie Fowler is.

Tim said...

Rickie is my homeboy simply because he is gonna be a huge player on tour. Coming up in an era where it's all about Tiger and Phil, and not letting it get to him. I called that he would be on the Ryder Cup simply because of his consistency and stellar play. His charisma will bring him to the top.

Joe said...

I need this shirt because a.) Rickie IS my homeboy and b.) I need another sweet orange shirt to wear to OSU athletic events.

C'mon Rickie, throw a fellow Poke a bone and please make me the envy of all the tailgate parties at Boone Pickens Stadium!

Elisabeth said...

I need a Rickie is my homeboy shirt because I really admire & respect him. He brought a whole new perspective to golf. Most guys at his age are arrogant & immature. Rickie has shown that he is a mature and a caring guy. I also really like his colorful outfits because they bring a fresh look to the pga tour! If I had a Rickie is my homeboy shirt then I would be able to represent him! (:

dani said...

My dad has always been a golfer, and he's always loved following it, too. I was never really into watching it until he told me about "a kid who dresses kinda weird that I might like". Little did I know that the kid would end up getting me really into watching golf and that he'd give me and my dad so much more to discuss and bond over. Rickie is definitely my homeboy :)

Jeremy said...

Hide your kids, hide your wife and hide your husbands because Rickie will be tearin up the courses all over here. Rickie is my homeboy.

Rickie is obviously my homeboy because we both went to Oklahoma State and both sport our orange at key times. I wore an orange suit in my wedding. Enough said.

Dylan Truax said...

Ahhh my HomeBoy Big Rickie...When I watch you play in tournaments on the good ole television, I think to myself... "WOW, how do you always come up with great outfits every day? Then I think to myself..."If there was only someway that I could have something awesome to wear like my Homie Rickie Fowler..." Then maybe the confidence would cause me to play just like the best dressed player in the Ryder Cup this year, not that other guy who claims he is. Not gonna say his name, but it rhymes with E-N Bolter,LoL! Fowler is the man and I wanna rock the Victory Orange!!! USA!!! USA!!! USA!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joey V said...

U know it's sad that everyone is now on the rickie band wagon just cause he is doing good I'm a true rickie fan from his days at okie state! Nuthin beats his all orange Sunday outfit...tigers Sunday red has nothin on rickies orange...the boy is straight beast and one of the nicest ppl ever...at the Bridgestone invitational this year he not only signed my towel but talked to me on every tee box then after his round he spent a good 30 min making sure he signed everything people wanted and kept a smile the whole way...he is truly an example of a pro athlete that has not let the fame get to him...so down to earth I am truly his homeboy and that's y I need to rock one of these shirts...USA all the way baby europes got no chance now!

Lee said...

I've got to have this shirt to show my support for our next USA Ryder Cup Legacy Playa!

Rickie is my homeboy because we are around the same age and he is a roll model...even though I am slightly older than him (3 years)

Rickie is my homeboy because even though I am 3 years older than him he is still a role model for me.

Bob said...

I've been looking for a young American golfer to get behind and this year have really found it in Rickie. I've enjoyed watching him both on TV and in person as I followed him for a bit on Friday of the PGA Championship. I'd love to have this shirt to show my membership in the "Rickie is My Homeboy" fan club.

Joey V said...

It sucks now that everyone is trying to jump on the rickie bandwagon now that he has made it big...I have been following rickie from his days at okie state! Not to mention his all orange sunday outfit is the sickest thing out there tigers sunday red has got nuthin on the all orange and they way he rocks a flat brim is just epic! Rickie is seriously one of the nicest guys in the world when I went to the bridgestone invitational this year not only did he sign my towel he talked to me on every tee box...then after his round he spent an extra 30 min making sure he signed everything for everyone...truly a class act...he's so young and is setting an example of how professional athletes should act a true class act and he's so young...rickie is the bomb and that's y I need a rickie is my homeboy shirt because he is my homeboy...USA all the way baby! Eroupe doesn't stand a chance now...and this orange shirt wil go great with my matching puma flatbrim!!!

Eazy - E said...

I need this shirt because my wife will not let me wear my "Tiger is my Homeboy" shirt anymore. Champion Orange is my new Victory Red!

Eazy - E said...

I need this shirt because my wife won't let me wear my "Tiger is my Homeboy" shirt anymore....looks like Champion Orange is the new Victory Red!

shelbygolfer said...

Rickie is my homeboy because of who he is. He isn't afraid to wear that orange on orange or any other outfit that makes him the best dressed on tour. He doesn't have the text book swing but he doesn't need it. He shows me that if I go out and do my own thing good things will happen. Most importantly, Rickie shows me to go out be different and make a statement!

Jennifer said...

Rickie is my homeboy simply because I am an Okie born and raised. I had to move to California ten years ago and I just love to watch Rickie play sporting the orange that was in my house growing up. Brings back great memories!!

Tyler said...

I need a "Rickie is my Homeboy" T-Shirt because I'm a Stillwater, OK native and I've been a big fan for a long time. I believe Rickie rocks the Orange (at least in part) because he's a hard core OSU Cowboy and I would rock my "Rickie is my Homeboy" T-Shirt as proudly as he rocked that solid orange outfit on Sunday at Colonial. I got some good shots of you that day Rickie and sent them into the twitterverse with aplomb. If I'm a winner, the first thing I'll do is tweet a pic of myself in the shirt and hashtag you!

ben__ said...

I need this shirt because what else am i going to wear during the ryder cup with my orange puma monoline hat?

Andy said...

Simply because Rickie is my homeboy. I became a fan of Rickie's before he even his the Nationwide scene. Rickie's final year of college, the NCAA Championships were held at Inverness CC in Toledo, OH. I not only worked this tournament, but this is when Rickie Fowler became my homeboy!

GirlofNorway said...

I want this t-shirt because I want more Norwegian golfers to appreciate the great golf he plays. Rickie is young and already a golfstar!
And I just want the t-shirt. :)

Since I'm from Europe, I would like that grip :)

bbeshara said...

The reason why I need this shirt is because I am Rickie Fowler's homeboy..he just hasn't met me yet. I follow him on Twitter and because of this I over use his commonly treated pre-round phrase Go time! Ive spent hours searching fot his outfits online so I can be as fly as Rickie when I golf. I painted my room Orange. Bought an orange car. Dumped my girlfriend for making fun of my orange obsession. When I bleed its Orange because I had my blood dyed Orange. I only drink Orange juice and eat oranges. So I can thank my loney, Orange life to Rickie. So the least you can do is gimme a shirt to wipe away my Orange tears. Haha just kidding I'd wear it til it wasnt orange any more. And then ill need another one.
Go time!

I need this shirt so I can prove to all my clubmembers that Rickie is for real and not just a fashion statement.

AmyGutt said...

The obvious answer is because Rickie Fowler IS my homeboy! You have to love his confidence and appreciation in his college-OSU. If he is willing to wear orange to show his affection for OSU what will he do as he now represents the United States? Can't wait to see what my homeboy wears next!

The reason why i need a Rickie is my homeboy t shirt is because I will marry Rickie Fowler some day, he just doesn't know it yet. I bet he will wear and orange tux at our wedding <3. My screen name for everything is usually <3rickiefowlerismylove<3 Also, ever since i have seen Rickie at a tournament in the beginning of the summer, i have been obsessed with him. He is my favorite golfer!! I follow him on twitter, facebook, and my new favorite color is orange. Everything i buy now has to be orange because i know its his favorite color!! And the shirts are orange!! It would make me sooo happy if i won a Rickie is my homeboy t shirt!!

Cunder18 said...

All of my friends know that I love Rickie Fowler. He is my homeboy because i made him a household name in my house, and my friends. He makes me want to get better at golf so one day, I can play with him. This halloween, I am being Rickie Fowler. And I could really use a shirt to go with my costume! :D

matt said...

I need the Rickie is my homeboy t-shirt because I am a young golfer and we need to support each other! I am no where near half the golfer he is but you still got to stand behind him! He is a great guy with great values and brings a young face to golf. I follow him every week and am always updating my wardrobe with as many of the cool things he wears as I can!

Clay said...

I need this shirt to replace my worn-out "Bobby Jones is the Bee's Knees" tee ...

David said...

I went to the BMW Championship yesterday and had an amazing time following Rickie around. During the round, he even took a quick time-out to take a picture with me! WHAT OTHER PRO DOES THAT?! I know for a fact TIGER DOESN"T! I'm truly amazed at what Rickie is doing to try to grow the game of golf; by just being NICE! This is why Rickie is my Homeboy!

Greg T.

SO i can stand out overseas cheering on the Red, White, n Blue!

Kyra said...

I believe i deserve a Rickie Is My Homeboy shirt so i can show my love for Rickie through more than my words. All of my friends know I love him. They even make fun of me because of it. I started golf a year ago, but i've worked harder at it because of him. He makes me wanna actually sit with my dad, and watch the golf. I also need this shirt because i'm being rickie for halloween, and the shirt would be perfect for my costume. :D

Anonymous said...

Fearless. This is what separates Rickie Fowler from the rest of the tour. His ability to have fun, think out of the box, and display that killer instinct that all champions have is a pleasure to watch. Following his game has inspired me to take my golf game to the next level and make sure I have a great time doing it. Because Rickie has changed the way I view golf, Rickie is my homeboy.

AD Doberman said...

I met Rickie at the Notah Begay Foundation Charity Event at Turning Stone. Rickie is my Homeboy because he cares. Not only did he take the time to participate in the event, Rickie signed autographs and talked to many in the gallery. He is respectful of the game, the other players, and is great role model for all of us. He makes golf fun to watch and is a fierce competitor. His puma gear ROCKS. I'll wear my shirt with pride at my home course, The Pompey Club, (Home of PGA Masters Rule official Tom Gorman). With Steek on the Ryder Cup, there's no way we can lose!! Its Go time!!!

Casey said...

I gotta win this shirt because my best friend EVER is so totally and completly in love with rickie. She dreams about meeting him one day and it would kinda make her LIFE if i won this t shirt for her. I gotta win this!!! :D

Anonymous said...

I would like to win this shirt for one f my best friends because she plays golf and is completely obsessed with rickie fowler, I think hes pretty cool too!

ltbeyer said...

I need the t-shirt to wear for Rickie at the Ryder Cup! I haven't found any fun Team USA apparel to wear (and don't have time to make any with a wedding next week!), but I'd love to rock this shirt. If I can get two, my friend and I will both wear it for Friday's matches!!

Chelsea said...

Rickie Fowler is my homeboy because he is one of the very few that can pull off the orange. Rickie is also the nicest guy. When he is at the practice rounds he always signs autographs and take pictures. He is a sweet guy! Plus he has the confidence in himself to be the next Tiger Woods.

Fredrick said...

You can never have enough homeboys, Rickie would make a great homeboy. He has style, golfs his ball and hangs with some pretty stout compnay on the PGA Tour. Plus you can nver have enough orange shirts.

I think i deserve one so i can truly show my support for the next tiger woods my favorite golfer ever...because of rickie i watch golf and i would love to have a tee shirt with him on it. GO rickie :)

cgeraghtyrko said...

Rickie Fowler is my homeboy becauase he did what tiger does but he topped it by being orasnge to the bone. Everything is orange his hat to his shoes orange frickin awesome.

Diane said...

Rickie is my homeboy ... because he really is. As a resident of Murrieta, CA. Rickie's hometown, I have been following him since he was a kid. A a great kid he was/is. I know that Rickie will never forget where it all started and I would LOVE to wear this shirt all around his hometown of MURRIETA!!!!!

Anonymous said...

I would love to have a Rickie Fowler is my homeboy shirt because he is my homeboy! I have been a dedicated fan of him since his college days. He is such a respectable person, and I love him so much! He is gorgeous and talented, and I would be so honored to have this shirt to represent him, since I compete as well.

I tweeted to Rickie how can I pick up one of these cool t-shirts. My friends and I do an annual college football trip. This year we travel to Austin, Texas when the Oklahoma State Cowboys visit town.

I realize Rickie is a HUGE Cowboys supporter with his orange Sunday outfit and orange designed clubs. If I were to win the t-shirt prize I would sport the Rickie is my Homeboy shirt all weekend long and root for the Cowboys (in Austin!).

I had a chance to meet Rickie it Ridgewood, NJ this year at the Barclay's. He was so down to earth and a great person to the fans. I became a fan of his during the tournament and would love the opportunity to sport the homeboy shirt during my trip to Austin.

Go Cowboys! Good luck in the Ryder Cup.

Lara said...

Rickie is my homeboy because finally a good looking Golfer is good enough to actually stick around and win. Its always easier to explain why a 17 year old likes golf once they see that I support Rickie! I would love to rock the Hott orange T. Even as a English Girl found myself supporting him in the Ryder Cup!

Pribs said...

Rickie is the bomb. I love the fact that he's not like the rest of the golfers in this world, who blend in with the simple polo and plain black shorts. Rickie blends out. He's not afraid to put his own spin on the golf world with the all one color and his golf game. As a 15 year old trying to make my way into the golf world, Rickie is an inspiration to kids like me everwhere. He's shown me to be myself in this world, no matter what anybody says. Rickie's definately my homeboy. :)

Anonymous said...

Rickie is my homeboy because im a 17 year old girl golfer, and he is my complete idol. and i always wear puma and me and rickie are both boss.

Jack said...

Rickie is my homeboy! He has everything you need to be on the PGA TOUR: an amazing skill level, swagger, confidence, and style. Your hat and shirt are in my lineup of clothing when i tear up the course like you do on a daily basis. I really want this shirt because it is true! Rickie is my homeboy!!
Good luck this year bro!!

Daria D. said...

Rickie Fowler is my Homeboy because Rickie Fowler is my idol. He plays an excellent game of golf, has an eye for fashion, has awesome hair and he has swagger. Rickie is the reason I began playing golf. Also he is my homeboy because I believed in him from the beginning and he deserves to be the best golf player in the world. I am only 14 and he has already influenced me to be one of his number 1 fans. That is why Rickie Fowler is my homeboy.
