No matter the reason, Fowler is getting some extra attention for having the green and gold bag. Brief articles on the selection of bag have already been written up on Golf.com, ESPN.com, TotalPackers.com and Fansided.com,

Based on those write-ups, Fowler’s bag is not officially a Green Bay Packers bag.

TotalPackers.com reports, “If you’re wondering if there’s a Wisconsin connection, there is not. Fowler is from Georgia and went to Oklahoma State.”
