Jupiter resident Rickie Fowler poised to win the Honda Classic
Palm Beach Gardens (CBS12) —
It's always nice to get a second chance in life, and Rickie Fowler took advantage of that mulligan on Saturday at the Honda Classic. The Jupiter resident was in the exact same position as he was in last year in his home tournament, hungry for a win after two straight rounds of 68. But unlike last year, when he melted down on Saturday, Fowler shot a bogey free third round, one that included 5 birdies, to finish with a 4-stroke lead at 13 under.
"Any win is special," said Rickie after his third round. "but to be able to stay in my bed and my home with home cooked meals (and win it) would be that much more nice."
Fowler will be paired with Tyrrell Hatton of England on Sunday, who shot a 66 to secure second place at 9 under.
