    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Rickie Fowler left us scratching our heads again Sunday at the Honda Classic.

  • Fowler shrugs off Miller critique: 'A win's a win'

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Sometimes even a four-shot victory isn’t enough to silence the critics.
    Rickie Fowler survived a tumultuous final round at the Honda Classic, where he won with room to spare despite a number of front-nine errors and a pair of closing bogeys. The victory is his first on the PGA Tour in more than a year, but it still left Golf Channel and NBC analyst Johnny Miller questioning Fowler’s ability to close.

    Despite and up-and-down final round on Sunday, Rickie Fowler picked up his fourth PGA Tour victory on Sunday at the Honda Classic. Here are some key stats from the 28-year-old's win at PGA National:
    • It was Fowler's fourth career PGA Tour win and first when holding the 54-hole lead or co-lead.
    • Fowler finished at 12 under, one shot behind the 72-hole tournament scoring record at PGA National.
    • Fowler is projected to move to ninth in the in Official World Go
  • Woodland (T-2) pleased, frustrated by final round

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – He couldn’t catch up to Rickie Fowler, but Gary Woodland still continued an impressive season with his final-round rally at the Honda Classic.
    Woodland started the day six shots off the lead, but he raced up the standings with four birdies over his first 13 holes, the last of which drew him within one shot of Fowler. But he didn’t make another birdie from there, and any title aspirations evaporated with a three-putt on No. 17 and a watery approach on
  • Bryan eyeing Masters after another T-4 finish

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Another week, another T-4 finish for Wesley Bryan.
    The PGA Tour rookie held a share of the 36-hole lead at the Honda Classic before being passed by eventual champion Rickie Fowler. Bryan still managed to tie for fourth after an even-par 70 in the final round left him five shots off the pace.
    The result equals Bryan’s career-best finish on Tour and matches his result last week at the Genesis Open, where he briefly challenged Dustin Johnson.

  • Fowler hangs on to win Honda by four shots

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – It got a little more interesting than he had hoped, but in the end Rickie Fowler still found a way to leave the Honda Classic with the trophy. Here’s how things ended up at PGA National, where Fowler won by four shots:
    Leaderboard: Rickie Fowler (-12), Gary Woodland (-8), Morgan Hoffmann (-8), Jhonattan Vegas (-7), Billy Horschel (-7), Wesley Bryan (-7), Martin Kaymer (-7)

  • Horschel (security) would've skipped WGC-Mexico

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Billy Horschel made a charge up the leaderboard during the final round of the Honda Classic, one that nearly netted him a spot in the WGC-Mexico Championship. As it turns out, it wouldn’t have mattered.
    Horschel began the week ranked No. 75 in the world and likely needed at least a second-place finish to crack the top 50 and earn a spot in next week’s no-cut event. He came to the 72nd hole tied for third, but made bogey after his approach shot found t

  • Why Pat Perez was wrong about Tiger Woods

    In the wake of Pat Perez’s comments on Tiger Woods, I have read more than a few people and pundits who seem to think that this kind of commentary is just what is missing in golf. Some even justify the remarks with the retort that he didn’t lie, that the game needs an infusion of this kind of “honesty," that players far too often speak in platitudes and in so doing, are partly to blame for the game’s failing to connect with a new, younger audience.

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Jhonattan Vegas didn’t win a car for his efforts, but a final-round ace at the Honda Classic boosted his chances of returning to a familiar venue next month.
    Vegas made a hole-in-one on the 15th hole Sunday, jarring a 6-iron from 179 yards. The shot didn’t win him the Honda vehicle on display behind the tee, though, as Scott Stallings had aced No. 15 during the opening round.

  • Despite 4-shot lead, Fowler not counting chickens

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – It’s all about closing now.
    Rickie Fowler wanted to be in this position come Saturday night at the Honda Classic, to sleep on the lead and force himself to finish off what he started.
    Fowler, 28, may have three PGA Tour titles to his credit, but he’s 0 for 4 trying to close out 54-hole leads on his home tour.
    While Fowler couldn’t win Saturday, he looked like he was trying.
    With birdies at two of the final three holes, Fowler put up a bogey-free
  • Saturday's final group makes a mess of back nine

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Saturday was not a good day to be in the anchor pairing at the Honda Classic.
    Wesley Bryan and Ryan Palmer shared the 36-hole lead, but after a tumultuous trip around the Champion Course both found themselves well behind leader Rickie Fowler.
    Palmer made only one birdie en route to a 3-over 73, a score that dropped him into a tie for eighth at 6 under. Bryan was able to do only one better, posting a 2-over to move into a tie for third.

    But he has required little prior experience to tame the Champion Course, shooting three straight sub-par
  • You Oughta Know: National treasure

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – With three rounds in the books at the Honda Classic, the tournament has seemingly turned into a one-man race. Here’s what You Oughta Know heading into the final round at PGA National, where Rickie Fowler hopes to close out his first worldwide win in more than a year:
    • Fowler held a 36-hole lead here last year but faded with a third-round 74. This time around he shot a bogey-free 65 to turn a one-shot deficit into a four-shot lead over Tyrrell Hatton.
  • Two key changes to thank for Fowler's improved play

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Two keys off the tee have contributed to Rickie Fowler’s recent resurgence: shorten the club and start aiming left.
    Fowler has taken a page from his friend and fellow Butch Harmon disciple Jimmy Walker, who debuted a shorter driver to start the year in Maui. Fowler’s model in play at this week’s Honda Classic is 43 ½ inches, a full inch shorter than his usual model.

    1. It’s Rickie Fowler’s tournament to close. Though Fowler has won three PGA Tour titles, he’s 0-for-4 trying to close out a 54-hole lead or share of the lead on Tour. He’s 1-for-5 worldwide. That remarkable

But the rookie withdrew after 28 holes, and this week he missed the cut by four shots at the Honda Classic. After completing his second round, DeChambeau told Golf Digest the latest change away from side-saddle was not by design.

    PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Ryan Palmer is well aware of his personal streak of futility on PGA National’s most famous stretch.

But he has not been bitten through the first two rounds this week, a large reason why Palmer holds a one-shot lead at 9 under.

    Kaymer received a five-year PGA Tour exemption for his win at the 2014 U.S. Open, but he lost his playing privileges the next year because he didn’t meet the Tour’s minimum start requirement. As a result, the German made just 10 starts last season and still is not a full member.
