SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Rickie Fowler birdied two of his final four holes and overcame a bizarre triple bogey on the 11th hole at rainy TPC Scottsdale to win the Phoenix Open on Sunday.
Leading by five, Fowler took a 7 on the par-4 11th after a chip shot skipped across the green and into the water and a second ball rolled into the water on its own.
Branden Grace took the lead with consecutive birdies, but hit his tee shot into the water on the drivable par-4 17th for a bogey.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — After the opening round of the Phoenix Open, Rickie Fowler lamented a missed putt that would have given him the outright lead and household bragging rights.
Following an impressive string of birdies to close out his second round, Fowler will get his chance to trash-talk Justin Thomas, his roommate this week.
Fowler closed with four straight birdies for a 6-under 65 on Friday, draining an 8-foot putt on the final hole to take a one-shot lead over Thomas into the weekend.
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — A year ago, Brandt Snedeker made a last-ditch effort to secure a spot in the Masters by flying halfway around the world to play in the Indonesia Masters with hopes of getting into the top 50 by the end of the year.
He withdrew after a 72, ended the year at No. 59 and wound up missing the Masters for the first time since 2010.
The strength of field for the CIMB Classic was the same as it was last year, with one exception that Anirban Lahiri nearly found out the hard way.
Lahiri had gone to Malaysia the previous five years and he noted that the field — with the top 60 players available from the FedEx Cup — had always gone below 100. Lahiri finished last year at No. 99 and figured there was nothing to worry about.

VIRGINIA WATER, England (AP) — Francesco Molinari mastered the toughest conditions of the week at Wentworth to shoot a 6-under 66 and share the lead with Rory McIlroy after three rounds of the BMW PGA Championship on Saturday.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Don't be alarmed by Branden Grace becoming the first player to shoot 62 in a major championship.
Or that two players, Justin Thomas and Adam Hadwin, shot 59 at the start of the year. There no longer is as much magic in a 59, not with Jim Furyk setting a new standard with a 58 only six months earlier.
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Branden Grace posted the lowest 18-hole score in 157 years and 422 major championships, and he didn't even know it.
He knocked in his short par putt on the final hole at Royal Birkdale for a 62 when his caddie, Zack Rasego, walked up to him and said, "You're in the history books."
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — A look at the key hole Saturday in the third round of the British Open:
SOUTHPORT, England (AP) — Jason Day thought there might be a 62 out on the course as he played a suddenly vulnerable Royal Birkdale on Saturday, a few groups ahead of Branden Grace.
Actually, he thought he could have easily shot one himself.
"I think I left four in the heart today that would have got me to 9 (under) if I holed those," Day said after shooting a 5-under-65. "So I definitely think there's a good opportunity to shoot 62 out there today."
