Rickie Fowler was on fire Sunday from TPC Potomac.

Fowler, who entered the final round of the Quicken Loans National at even par, went to 1-over early on after a bogey on the fourth hole. 

Then Fowler rallied, sinking six birdies in a seven hole span, climbing the Quicken Loans National leaderboard. Fowler began his attack on the par-4 seventh, with just a bogey on 11 sandwiched between the six birdies. 

After a double-bogey ended the birdie run, Fowler answered with two more birdies in the last four holes, including ending his 72nd hole of the weekend one-under par.

Fowler entered the clubhouse at 5-under. It's a waiting game now, as he is one stroke behind the three-way tie atop the leaderboard. Stay tuned, we're in for an exciting finish. PGA.com will have updates and scores down the stretch.
