So, why does Rickie Fowler wear orange?
Rickie insists on wearing orange during the final day of a golf tournament — but why? Well, it's a nod to his days at Oklahoma State. He previously revealed he wore orange while in school as a way to stand out from the rest.
"Obviously, not many guys wear orange, so it was a way to be my own man out there," the golfer said. "A few of my Oklahoma State teammates wore the same colors, so, at the time, it was a bit of a bonding thing. But nobody really does that on Tour. I like to think of it as my own little personal style."
He added, "I've always enjoyed having my own sense of style; it's just a fun way to stand out. It's fun to wear what I want to wear and show off." As for what he wouldn't wear, Rickie declared that he wouldn't wear crimson or burnt orange under "any circumstances" (those are the colors of his rival schools).
