Rickie Fowler goes undercover as a caddie, fools everyone with Zach Galifianakis-esque beard

By Alex Myers
We’ve seen Rickie Fowler go undercover before as Dick Fowler, P.I., but this time, instead of busting naughty golfers, he’s helping out unsuspecting ones. Well, sort of.

In a new pair of Farmers Insurance ads that time nicely with next week’s Farmers Insurance Open, the PGA Tour star dons a Zach Galifianaki-esque beard and takes on the identity of “Richard Flower,” a chatty caddie. And this affable alter ego is eager to help golfers with everything from reading greens to swing advice to a chipping lesson that involves players hiking up their pants. Check them out:

Our favorite exchange has to be when one unsuspecting golfer asks, “How long have you been a caddie?” Fowler quickly shoots back, “Longer than you’ve been alive.”

Anyway, good stuff, Rickie. Farmers clearly hasn’t been giving you enough speaking lines through the years.
