Rickie Fowler lurking behind Palmer, Bryan after Round 2 — Honda Classic

He also has won three times internationally. The wind was heavy today, it was blowing pretty good so it kept us on our toes. You win from behind, and you learn to compete wisely with a lead in hand.

Fan injured by Pan drive: PGA Tour rookie C.T. Pan hit a wild second shot on No. 18 that hooked left of the green and struck a spectator in the head.

"I watched a few tournaments", Palmer said.

"It wasn't the prettiest of ways to do it", Fowler admitted, "but this isn't an easy golf course, and this wasn't an easy day".

Comfort on the greens has been slow to come since he took four months off late in 2016 to be at home with his wife, Jennifer, as she underwent treatment for breast cancer, and with their two young children. The birdie on 16 came when a masterful approach shot plopped down six feet from the hole, and Fowler putted it dead center into the hole. Instead, he went bogey-bogey but still won by four over Woodland and Hoffmann.

This is Fowler's seventh victory in his career.

One putt made its way into a sprinkler hole and a tee shot went for a dip, but Fowler sank clutch putts and stayed the course along the way. "It was a odd way to do it, but a win is a win". "I've been working really hard". Harmon talked to Fowler about it at year's start. I was trying to get over a 16-hour time difference. If you're playing from three or four shots behind, you can't make mistakes.

"But he didn't win".

"To have a big lead, to falter, you learn so much about yourself when you have to win like this than when you coast and win by 10".

Fellow Tour pros saw that, too.

Adam Scott (T14): In his title defense this week, Scott only shot one round over par (a 71 on Saturday), but he never truly got in the mix with the leaders. Last year's WEB.com Tour player of the year has transitioned nicely into the big leagues. I didn't play great.

Cesc Fabregas has also struggled to break into the starting XI, while Chelsea great and veteran John Terry has watched from afar. In their next match, Chelsea host Swansea at the Bridge while Wolves play at home to Birmingham City in a West Midlands derby.

Bryan is in his first full season on the PGA Tour. Friday both missed the cut, Berger coming in at 3-over and Harrington 4-over.

Fowler was a popular victor.

In the end, no one could catch Rickie Fowler - even though he tried to help. Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, Hideki Matsuyama and Jordan Spieth have all won events since Scott last posted a victory at the WGC-Cadillac Championship almost a year ago.

Former Scottish Open champion Rickie Fowler is back into the world top 10 after landing his first victory in more than a year. He made Sunday an adventure for everyone rooting for him. Johnson has been the game's most consistent player over the past year and has seven top-six finishes in his past nine starts.

After he took his first swing at the final hole, Fowler and his caddie exchanged fist bumps.

Fowler was off to celebrate, and scheduled to play in the famed Pro-Member at nearby Seminole on Monday morning, an event that he has not had trouble winning.

"This is why you build yourself a lead", Skovron said.

As Woodland birdied the 11th and 13th to briefly move within one of the lead, Fowler holed a 35-footer at the 12th and sank another long-range putt at the next to restore a three-shot cushion.

"My putting saved me", Fowler said.

"I love to play in the wind", Fowler said when told it is expected to blow at least 25 miles per hour in the final round. Hoffmann shot a final-round 68.

Skovron relished seeing Fowler hoist the crystal trophy after.
