Ow says the wallet! Gary Woodland's bogey-bogey finish Sunday at the Honda Classic cost him $128,000. Woodland ended in a tie with Morgan Hoffmann at -8. A solo second place finish would have been worth $691,200. Instead, both players receive $563,200. Still not a bad week's pay.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

It's official: Rickie Fowler wins the Honda Classic -- his seventh career professional victory and fourth on the PGA Tour.

Ian O'Connor @Ian_OConnor

I became a Rickie Fowler fan the day he honored Payne Stewart at Pinehurst by dressing like him. Young gun with an old soul.

Luke Donald @LukeDonald

The art of a great player is getting it done despite not having your best. Great patience, resilience and putting by Rickie today

Luke Donald @LukeDonald

Rickie playing the last with a 5 shot lead and Johnnie Miller saying he's not sure what this will do for him as he didn't play that great 😂

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

How tough were scoring conditions Sunday at the Honda Classic? Jhonattan Vegas teed off at 9:45am tied for 50th; he's now tied 4th place after a round-of-the-day 64 (-6).

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Rickie Fowler had never won from 54-hole lead. Entered today with a 4-stroke lead and now up 5 with two holes to play. Proving he can close.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

And just like that... Gary Woodland three putts the 17th hole for bogey while Rickie Fowler hits a spectacular second shot in to the 16th hole inside 4 feet. Five shot lead with two holes to play.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

For the first three rounds of the Honda Classic, Jimmy Walker was -5 playing "The Bear Trap" (holes 15-17). Sunday he played those three holes in +5.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Rickie Fowler through 13 holes today: -- 4 birdies -- 6 pars -- 2 bogeys -- 1 double Now leads by 3 once again.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Honda is giving Jhonattan Vegas a car (Honda CRV) for his hole-in-one on the par three 15th Sunday morning. Originally only Scott Stallings was supposed to get a car since he made the FIRST ace on that hole Thursday at the Honda Classic. Remarkably, there had never been a hole-in-one on that hole during the tournament before this year!

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Best thing about a Rickie Fowler title contention is all the old dudes in the gallery dressed exactly like Rickie Fowler.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Whoa. Rickie Fowler just holed a putt from the back fringe off fourth green. Unfortunately for him, he holed it into the sprinkler head.

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

When Jhonattan "Johnny" Vegas runs into the media center after his final round 64 at the Honda Classic and says, "Hey guys! The beer is on me today!" I had to track him down so he could tell all of you exactly why. And thank him of course.

With a win today, Rickie Fowler will move back inside the world's top-10, where he spent nearly all of 2015 and '16.

Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer 

Rickie Fowler is just about to get started in his final round of the Honda Classic. Seeking his fourth career PGA Tour title, Fowler owns a four-stroke lead over Tyrell Hatton. But this is hardly over: In four previous tries with the 54-hole lead, Fowler has failed to convert any into victories.

Jason Sobel @JasonSobelESPN

Brendan Steele was 6-over through six holes this week. Now 12-under in his last 61 holes and all the way back into the top-10.
