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 the closing hole.

“Frustrating because I gave myself a lot of chances,” Woodland said. “I just didn’t get anything to go in on 14, 15, 16, 17. I hit good putts, and sometimes they go in and sometimes they don’t.”

A final-round 69 left Woodland at 8 under, tied for second alongside Morgan Hoffmann and ultimately four shots behind Fowler. The close call extends his victory drought on Tour that dates back to the 2013 Barracuda Championship.

But it also continues Woodland’s recent run of success that dates back to a runner-up finish at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in November and includes a T-5 finish earlier this month at Pebble Beach.

“Obviously I’m happy with the way I’m playing,” Woodland said. “I’ve been playing good for a while now. Keep knocking on the door and we’ll bust through soon.”
