Another strong finish over the closing stretch Saturday. Another big lead after 54 holes. Rickie Fowler can only hope that Sunday at the Honda Classic turns out as easy as it did the last two weeks on the PGA Tour, when Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson converted big leads into inevitable victories.
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Whether he was piling up majors or playing so poorly that he lost his PGA Tour card, never wavered from one goal in golf.

Russell Henley made good on his second chance at the 18th hole Sunday and won the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., after a wild day that began with Tiger Woods walking off the course with a back injury and ended with a four-man playoff.
