Fowler backs car over clubs, damages driver

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Pistol Pete won’t be firing on all cylinders this week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

That’s because Rickie Fowler damaged his “gamer” driver with the flashy Oklahoma State-orange and black shaft and school mascot.

Fowler said he recently backed up his car and drove over his golf travel case. The Mitsubishi Rayon shaft of his Titleist 909 D2 driver was the only club injured in the accident, he said.

Fowler is a long time user of the Mitsubishi Diamana Whiteboard shaft (he uses the 73x). After going through the process of getting NCAA permission to use the school mark and mascot emblem and manufacturing the shaft in Japan, the company surprised Fowler with the driver last month. He started using it at the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego. Fowler said he would go back to his old driver (same specs) without Pistol Pete this week.

The good news: Mitsubishi made “a dozen or so,” according to Stacey Benvenuto, Mitsubishi’s brand marketing manager, and said Fowler will have a new one in no time.

It looks like Pistol Pete will ride again.
