Fowler leads heading into final day in Phoenix

The course is TPC Scottsdale.

Rickie Fowler birdied the last three holes to take the lead in the PGA Tour's Phoenix Open, overcoming a sluggish start in front of the largest crowd in golf history. You are doing pretty good for yourself, and are a couple shots under par going into the last few holes.

Fowler, joint leader after two rounds, was one over for his opening seven holes but finished superbly to eclipse fellow overnight leader Bryson DeChambeau, who dropped a shot at the short par four 17th, having earlier made three successive birdies. You're next task... The ...

"I haven't been playing very well", he said. David Lipsky showed his liking for this course previous year with a second place, and this ace scrambler has proven form in this part of the world and on courses that correlate with this week's test.

Fowler, a playoff loser to Matsuyama two years ago, also eagled the 15th, where he warmed to his task on a brisk morning, lashing a five-wood to inside two feet.

Daniel Berger and Chez Reavie both signed for 65s to lie one stroke back on 133. After a bogey on the stadium-enclosed 16th hole - which led to thunderous boos - Fowler closed his first nine with birdies on the final two holes. "The swing was just a fraction off".

Los Angeles middle school shooting was an accidental discharge
Castro Middle School in Los Angeles and the suspect - who has not been named - was taken into custody minutes later. Apparently, this shooting was an accidental discharge of just one round from inside a backpack.

"He was just pumped and excited to be out there watching us", Fowler said.

Thomas shot a triple bogey on the par-5 15th and then a double bogey on the par-3 16th to finish the day at even par.

Lee is yet to find his rhythm in the new year though will be pleased to have broken a run of three straight missed cuts in qualifying for the weekend at Torrey Pines.

Rahm, another Arizona State product and Phoenix's other beloved adopted son, is just a shot back of Fowler at 13 under. He entered the week with four top-5 finishes in his last six starts.

"But I'm starting to see what the problem areas are in tournament play and where I'll put all the time and effort to get right".
