Fowler digs deep to win Phoenix Open

4th February 2019, 08:37 by Tom Hill

American Rickie Fowler was able to hold on to win the Waste Management Phoenix Open despite blowing a four-shot advantage.

The American looked like he had ruined his chance to win when he found the water on the 11th and was forced to take a drop shot.

That rolled back into the hazard and he was forced to take another before cardying a triple bogey.

He also dropped a shot on the 12th and that allowed South Africa's Branden Grace to take a brief lead.

However, Fowler dug in to birdie the 15th and 17th before eventually finishing on 17-under par, two clear of Grace.

"It was a bit of a rollercoaster," said Fowler. "Other than two holes, it was a decent round.

"It was a bad break with the ball rolling back in the water. That's what's nice about having a cushion after the first 54 holes."

Justin Thomas finished in third, while Chez Reavie, Bubba Watson and Matt Kuchar finished in a tie for fourth.
