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.
