Fowler pleased to get 'monkey off my back'

MEXICO CITY – Much was made of Rickie Fowler’s 54-hole PGA Tour record heading into the final round of last week’s Honda Classic.

In all three of his previous Tour victories he had come from behind in the final round, and last week’s 54-hole advantage marked the fifth time he’d held at least a share of the lead after three rounds. Needless to say, finishing strong last week for the victory was seen as a big step to everyone except Fowler.

“I hadn’t really thought of the times that I hadn’t done it just because I had won before from the lead through 36 or 54 [holes], just not on the PGA Tour but I have done it worldwide,” Fowler said Wednesday at the WGC-Mexico Championship.

Fowler won last year’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on the European Tour after taking the lead into the final round, but admitted that finally doing it on the PGA Tour was special.

“To play the way I did and ultimately finish off the job and hold the 54-hole lead, it was nice to finally get that monkey off my back,” he said.
