Rickie Fowler walked the walk Saturday at the Honda Classic, after saying it was time for him to start winning golf tournaments Friday evening.
Fowler posted a 5-under 65 to lead Tyrrell Hatton by four shots entering Sunday’s final round, and seeks his first PGA Tour win since September 2015.
The 28-year-old made five birdies and no bogeys in his round, mostly due to a hot putter and another solid day with the driver.
“Yeah I know I have a lead and it’s going to be nice to go out in front,” Fowler told Steve Sands of the Golf Channel. “But a lot of golf to be played, especially around this place.”

Hatton moved into solo second place at 9-under, thanks to a 4-under round of 66. Martin Kaymer, Emiliano Grillo, Sean O’Hair, Gary Woodland, and Wesley Bryan each sit two shots back of Hatton at 7-under.
