Rickie has a proven knack for firsts. After all, which other professional golfer has a background in motocross? Fortunately for fans of the new golf generation, Rickie traded in his dirt bike for a golf cart at the age of 14, and he hasn't looked back since.
Now in his 20s, Rickie has become the only player in history to be the NCAA's Player of the Year as a freshman, and is one of the fastest to have a shot at his PGA Tour card. In 2010, he was named the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year. The following year, Rickie took his first professional title when he won OneAsia Tour’s Korea Open, finishing with a 3-under 68 — a six-stroke victory over the then-US Open champion Rory McIlroy. In 2012, he scored a PGA Tour victory at the Wells Fargo Championship, as well as second place at the Players Championship in Florida.
