Question of the Day
“I couldn’t get anything going today,” Fowler said. “I felt like I was hitting some good putts out there, burning the edges, but nothing would fall.”
Fowler said Aronimink was set up tougher on Sunday a day after the course record seemed to fall every other round. Fowler was paired with Watney and runner-up K.J Choi and said he learned from them how to play with a victory within reach on the final day of a tournament.
“It’s great to be in that position,” Fowler said. “It’s good to see what other guys do in the same situation and how they handle themselves.”
HOLE-IN-ONE: Robert Allenby had the shot of the day when he nailed a hole-in-one on the par-3 14th hole.
Allenby, who finished tied for sixth, knew his shot was in from the moment he connected with his 6-iron.
“It was just on-line perfect all the way,” he said. “It landed perfect, just rolled up and then disappeared.” Allenby said it was his 15th ace as a pro and his second one in Pennsylvania. He did it a decade ago when the tour stopped here. He played with J.J. Henry when he sank the hole-in-one then, and they were in the same grouping Sunday.
“He’s a good omen,” Allenby said. “He just said, ‘You’ve done it with me again in the group.’ It’s nice.”
Allenby hit it 194 yards. It was the fourth ace at the AT&T National.
“I guess I’m aiming for it,” he said, laughing. “You’ve got to get a couple.”
He shot a 5-under 65 when the scores came back to Earth after low 60s were the norm for the leaders on Saturday. He was 8-under for the tournament.
“They shouldn’t have softened up the greens the way they did (Saturday), otherwise 8-under probably would have won this tournament,” he said.
TIGER SHOW: Tiger Woods made a cameo appearance at the AT&T National and caused a stir when he stopped to sign some autographs.
Fans rushed the rail as security implored them to move back and stop crushing a row of kids. The crowd eased back and Woods signed autographs for several minutes.
