Clinging to a one-shot lead Sunday at the Abu Dhabi Championship, Rickie Fowler needed a momentum swing down the stretch. And boy did he ever get one.
Faced with a delicate little chip from the fringe on No. 17 -- just moments after Rory McIlroy had eagled the 18th to add to the pressure -- watch what Fowler does in response:
That birdie pushed Fowler's advantage to two, and he needed all of it. Thomas Pieters had an eagle putt on the final hole that could have tied Fowler and sent the tournament into a playoff, but it came up just inches shy.
That allowed Fowler -- who parred the final hole -- to walk away with a one-shot victory, his fourth over a nine-month span.
That was the second time Fowler had stepped up big. Earlier in the round, he made a double bogey and immediately found himself facing a shot from the bunker on the next hole. But he was more than equal to the task:
Fowler's win certainly caught the attention of 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love III.
