Talking of betting on rounds, he said, “It’s gone both ways. I’ve won, he’s won.” He further talked about a specific match which came down to the last decisive stroke. Fowler claimed that the match couldn’t have ended in a tie, and that stroke would’ve decided the winner.

He gave a little insight into his feelings about gambling, revealing his approval. He said, “I feel like a lot of those matches, whether you’re with the boys back home playing for big money or playing with MJ and getting those juices going, those are some of the best preps for going out and being ready to play tournament golf.”

“He’ll play you for whatever you want. Whatever makes you scared. It’s just good, fun games. [There is] some competition, so you’re not out there just hitting the ball around,” added Fowler.
