After shooting 7-under par on Saturday, Rickie Fowler is where he wants to be headed into the final round in Phoenix, Arizona: the top of the leader board. At 20-under for the tournament, he has a 4-shot lead over Matt Kuchar.

Thursday Rickie would end his day with 5 birdies and an eagle on hole 13 to start the tournament. It would only get better from there.

Rickie brought some noise to hole 16 on Friday.

He would end his Friday with 7 (!!!) total birdies and just one bogey for a 65 going into the clubhouse. Then on Saturday he would add 9 more birdies to take a 4-shot lead.
Check out this putt to end the day on Saturday.

Fowler will be in a group with Matt Kuchar and Justin Thomas. They’ll tee off at 12:45 ET tomorrow. You can catch the action on Golf Channel starting at 1 p.m. and you can bet hole 16 is going to be as loud as it’s been all weekend.
