His thirteen-under par complete of 197 put him 4 strokes in entrance of England’s Hatton, who carded a 66 for 201.
It was once an additional two strokes again to a bunch of five gamers on 203. That included Bryan, who carded a two-over seventy two, and Germany’s Martin Kaymer, who posted a sixty eight.
They were joined by way of Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo, who signed for a 65, and americans Sean O’Hair (65) and Gary Woodland (66).
After two-hanging for birdie from 36 ft on the 1/3, Fowler rolled in a 32-footer for a birdie at the seventh. He seized the solo lead at 11-below with an eleven-foot birdie putt at the ninth, and drained another 11-footer at sixteen.
He padded his lead with any other two-putt birdie at the par-five 18th to put himself in good place to claim a first title given that his win in Abu Dhabi in January 2016.
He hasn’t won on the us PGA Tour considering he lifted two trophies in 2015.
