After going -3 in his final round, Fowler held off Rory McIlroy and Belgium's Thomas Pieters. Pieters came within one shot but Fowler birdied on 17 to go up two shots. Still, Pieters nearly forced a playoff on 18.

Here's a highlight from Fowler's remarkable final round performance, where he nailed a long bunker shot for eagle on No. 8:

This will likely push Fowler from a No.6 ranking to No.4. His next event is in California for the Farmers Insurance Open this week. For a full story on from AP go here.
