Rickie Fowler Fails To Convert As Woodland Wins In Phoenix

Rickie Fowler Fails To Convert As Woodland Wins In Phoenix

Woodland's 64 was the lowest round Sunday, followed by Schniederjans' 65, Reavie's 66 and Justin Thomas' 66. "I think the environment here has really helped me get out of that technical element".

"Gary was that guy that was due (for a win)", said Matt Kuchar, who played nine holes of practice with Woodland on Tuesday.

Frustrated with his results, Woodland had a heart-to-heart with his coach Butch Harmon, who set him up with Pete Cowen to evaluate his short game.

The WM Phoenix Open had not necessarily been a happy hunting ground for Woodland in recent times, missing two of his last three cuts but clearly his improving form has carried over to a layout which has not always been good to him.

Woodland started the day three shots behind Fowler and raced up the leaderboard with five birdies on the front nine. We went out to Hawaii early so I've been with him for five straight weeks which is wonderful. "I'm hitting the ball where I'm looking and hitting a lot of great putts, and I'm really excited about what's coming". "That was the struggle previous year".

They returned to the par-four 18th where Woodland was in a fairway bunker and Reavie in the fairway off the tee.

"Just couldn't buy a putt", Fowler said.

"The last two months have changed my life", said Sharma, who became just the third Indian after Jeev Milkha Singh and Anirban Lahiri to win two European Tour events in the same season. He bogeyed the par-4 14th before making the late run. "So it's been nice to have him on the road the last five weeks".

"I feel like I can make a lot of putts and I haven't felt that way in a long time", Woodland said.

The 42-time TOUR victor was trying to win for the first time with his brother, Tim, on the bag, and it didn't look out of the realm of possibility when Mickelson birdied holes 15, 16 and 17. I had to deal with it internally, but physically I was playing well. After a bogey on the par-3 16th, he chipped to 3 feet for birdie on the par-4 17th. "I just didn't get it going early, and I don't know what to say".

Beginning the day in a share of the advantage, Fowler missed the green and bogeyed the par-three fourth but bounced back to post a close-range birdie at the eighth. That is the difference between Woodland's $1,242,00 and second place money.

The PGA Tour now moves back to California for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am. "I really had it going". The victor chipped in from 30 feet to save par at the sixth hole and took just 26 putts Sunday, one day after he needed just 27 in the third round.

Popular names occupied the leader board at the outset of play on Sunday, Gary Woodland's not among them.
