Rickie Fowler Enters Final Round of Honda Classic With a 4-Shot Lead

The former Cowboy is going for his first win in over a year

PGA: The Honda Classic - Third Round Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Rickie Fowler will go for his fourth win and first in over a year today at the Honda Classic at PGA National. He is currently four shots ahead of England’s Tyrrell Hatton, after carding a 5-under 65 on Saturday.

Fowler says his focus today, will be on keeping things simple.

Fowler hasn’t won an event since Abu Dhabi a year ago January. He hasn’t had a PGA Tour victory since the 2015 Deutsche Bank Championship.

The former Poke’s bogey-free third round included two birdies in the final three holes, and another on 9 which gave him the lead.

While he has been great all weekend, carding rounds of 66, 66, and 65, it has been putting and his play on the par-5s where Fowler has been at his best. Fowler has gone 112 consecutive holes without a three-putt. Plus, he’s birdied both par-5 holes, 3 and 18, all weekend.

If you want to follow Fowler today, he’s scheduled to tee off at 12:45 p.m. with Tyrrell Hatton. The match is available on The Golf Channel now, and will be available on NBC around 2 p.m., following the conclusion of the Bruins and Stars game.
