NAPLES, Fla. — After a 6-under 66 in the first round of play in the Franklin Templeton Shootout, PGA Tour stars Rickie Fowler and Bud Cauley joined golfing legend Greg Norman at the driving range at Tiburón Golf Club for a family clinic.
Fowler and Cauley entertained the crowd, and Norman fielded questions from children in attendance.
"We have Rickie Fowler and Bud Cauley, two of the best swingers on the PGA Tour today," Norman said in an opening statement to the crowd.
Fowler and Cauley entertained a crowd of eager kids, hitting an array of shots that included a shot by Fowler that blasted through a Naples Daily News sign.
Friendly competition broke out between Fowler and Cauley, who hit two balls stacked on one another, and then two balls at a time.
Norman then fielded questions from the dozens of children in attendance. Questions ranged from Norman's favorite animal to if Norman has ever played with Ben Hogan, which got a laugh from the Shootout host.
After the kids were done asking questions, the Shark opened the floor to the adults watching. The adults asked more serious questions about the state of the game today and the changes that are coming, including the ban on anchored putters.
Norman then introduced Michael Zeigler, a six-time Remax world long drive finalist. Zeigler entertained with trick shots and even slammed a 350-yard drive with a 150 mph swing, compared to Fowler's club speed at 115 mph.
After the clinic, Fowler signed autographs for fans.
