GULLANE, Scotland – Rickie Fowler birdied three of his last four holes to overhaul fellow American Matt Kuchar and win the Scottish Open by one shot on Sunday for his second victory of the year.
Kuchar was on the practice range, preparing for a playoff, when Fowler sent his approach on No. 18 to within 18 inches. He tapped in the putt for a 2-under 68 — the same score as Kuchar — and an overall 12-under 268.
It is the fourth title of Fowler's professional career, and the second outside the United States after the Korea Open in 2011. He won The Players Championship in May.
Raphael Jacquelin of France birdied the last hole for 70 to tie for second place with Kuchar, and claim one of three British Open places on offer.
