Waste Management Phoenix Open 2018: Rickie Fowler Holds Lead After Saturday

Rickie Fowler took a step towards Phoenix Open redemption when he earned a share of the halfway lead with fellow American Bryson DeChambeau in Arizona on Friday.

"It was a grind", Fowler told Amanda Balionis of CBS Sports. "The swing was just a fraction off".

"I just barely caught it heavy, but I thought it was at least going to cover the front, and there was just no sand in the bunker, " Thomas said. It's just a matter of time. "It would just be nice if it was sooner rather than later".

Baddeley has a mixed history at TPC Scottsdale having missed the cut six times in 15 attempts and registering no top-10's outside his victory. Notes: The field features five of the top 10 players in the world, led by Jon Rahm. "It felt like every time one got ahead, the other ones would make a birdie and catch up". It also includes "the Coliseum" 16th hole - which has a 20,000 capacity arena built around the par to produce one of the most atmospheric stadiums in sport. The Spaniard was a sensation at Arizona State in nearby Tempe, Arizona and knows how to play desert golf. He birdied the final three holes of the day, including the iconic 16th hole, en route to earning a spot in the final group on Sunday.

Button pusher: "I thought it was real"
We were not ready for the call. "I can't say that I would do anything differently based on what I saw and heard", he told NBC. The employee, who has since been terminated, said he worked at the Hawaii agency for 11.5 years. "I feel awful about it".

For the second consecutive week, it took extra holes and an additional day to decide the outcome of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in La Jolla. "But the main key today was my iron play".

"If you look at it it looks like a very simple, solid bogey-free round, five-under". Spieth was 18 at the Sony Open, so I expect him to bounce back this weekend at an event where he finished ninth a year ago.

FIELD: A lot of players from Asia, as you would expect, but there are still some big hitters from Europe in the field - literally in the shape of favourite Henrik Stenson. "I may be somewhat of a fan favorite, but they weren't holding back", he said.

24-year-old pro Justin Thomas, who finished 3-under par Thursday, was disappointed with one fan in particular who yelled during the backswing of Jordan Speith.
