Rickie Fowler will take a four-stroke lead into Sunday's final round. Seeking his seventh career professional victory at the age of 28.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Rickie Fowler has a four-stroke lead heading to the final round of The Honda Classic, but he's 0-for-4 in his PGA Tour career when holding the lead (tied or outright) entering the final round of an event, never breaking par in the final round.

Martin Kaymer didn't follow his own mantra and it costs him at the Honda Classic. Kaymer, who's last PGA Tour victory was the 2014 U.S. Open said earlier during his Players Championship victory run that he was committed to "No Weichei" (sounds like Vice-eye when he says it). In German, Weichei literally means "soft egg" but is used as a soft insult meaning wimp or coward. On the par five 18th hole Saturday, Kaymer only had 257 yards to the hole but chose to layup instead of going for the green. He laid up in the rough and ended up making bogey on the second easiest hole on the golf course. Sunday Kaymer should go back to "No Weichei".

Early Saturday at the Honda Classic, Brandon Hagy shot a bogey-free 64 catapulting him up the leaderboard after making the cut on the number Friday. Hagy is in the field on a sponsors invitation left open by Thomas Pieters who jokingly told me Tuesday, "He should send me flowers!" Pieters didn't use/need the sponsor's invite because his top ten finish (T-2) at the Genesis Open automatically qualified him for this week's Honda Classic. Brandon Hagy might wanna go ahead and send those flowers since Pieters missed the cut and is not around for the weekend!
