Fowler made the turn on Sunday with a three-stroke lead, built partially thanks to a hole out for eagle on the par-5 eighth hole with his Tour Trusty Rusty wedge. Then, down the stretch with Pieters, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson all applying pressure, Fowler again found the bottom of the cup from off the green.

The birdie on the par-4 17th would prove to be the winning stroke as no one else could reach 16-under par.
