Golf’s ‘Big Three’ of Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy may soon become the ‘Big Four’ following Rickie Fowler’s victory at the Deutsche Bank Championship this morning.

Fowler rallied from two shots behind with five holes to play by draining a 40-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole. From there, he cruised to the finish line with a 3-under 68 to secure a one-shot victory over a rejuvenated Henrik Stenson at TPC Boston.


Stenson never trailed until his tee shot at the par-3 16th found water, leading to a double-bogey. The Swede failed to catch Fowler and carded a 70.

“Just kind of hung in there today,” Fowler said. “It’s pretty special.”


The victory was Fowler’s second of the season and third of his career and moved him to third in the FedExCup standings in the process.

“I’ve been playing well the past couple of years,” Fowler said. “It was just a matter of time before I knocked down the door.”
