NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA. (AP) - Rickie Fowler’s ordinary season came to life Saturday in the AT&T National.

On a day in which record scores at Aronimink didn’t last very long, Fowler made six birdies in his opening 10 holes for a 6-under 64 to share the lead with World Golf Championship winner Nick Watney.

Watney shot 27 on the back nine and wound up with the course record of 62. That broke the record held for 20 minutes by Steve Marino, who shot a 63.

The tournament, however, remains wide open going into the final round Sunday. Fowler and Watney were at 9-under 201, one shot ahead of 36-hole leader K.J. Choi, who birdied two of his last three holes to salvage a 69.

Marino, Adam Scott and Webb Simpson were two shots behind.
