Rick Yutaka Fowler (born December 13, 1988) is an American professional golfer. He was the number one ranked amateur golfer in the world for 36 weeks in 2007 and 2008.

Fowler was born in Anaheim, California and was raised in Murrieta, California where he went to Murrieta Valley High School. For years, he played only on a driving range and is almost entirely self-taught. During his freshman year in high school, he posted an all-time course record of 62 at his home course, SCGA, in Murrieta, California. His senior year in high school, Fowler won the SW League Final with a total score of 64–69=133, and led his team to the state final in 2007. After high school, he attended Oklahoma State University. He posted his first collegiate victory at the Fighting Illini Invitational hosted by the University of Illinois on October 1, 2007. He shot a 203 (70–63–70) to win the tournament by one stroke.

In the summer of 2005 Fowler won the Western Junior and competed in the U.S. Amateur, where he was defeated by the eventual champion Richie Ramsay.
