Fowler leads heading into final day in Phoenix

He slumped to another double bogey on the 12th and then bogeyed 14 - but rallied to pick up shots on the 15th and 18th.

Saturday's crowd pushed the week total to 654,906, just short of the record of 655,434 set a year ago.

Former Arizona State players Jon Rahm and Chez Reavie were a stroke back along with Bryson DeChambeau.

He dropped six strokes in a three-hole stretch, making a bogey on the par-four 14th, a triple bogey on the par-five 15th and a double bogey on the rowdy par-three 16th.

"It means a lot to me", Mickelson said.

Justin Thomas, the 2017 PGA Tour Player of the Year, got off to a dream start with six birdies to open his round.

Fowler is trying to finally win in the desert.

Thome, Jones, Guerrero, Hoffman headed to Cooperstown
Even so, the Phillies honored Thome with a plaque in their Wall of Fame , and the Indians built a statue of him at their ballpark. Among the players who drew under 5 percent and fell off the ballot were Johnny Damon , Hideki Matsui and Johan Santana .

World number seven Fowler, whose history of strong showings in Phoenix include a runner-up finish in 2010 and a playoff loss to Hideki Matsuyama in 2016, was rewarded for his patience with a sizzling finish to the day. "... I just was feeling it for some reason and I hit it". "The swing was just a fraction off".

Playing partner and fellow former Arizona State University graduate Mickelson, the 47-year-old three-time victor who has dropped to 49 in the world rankings, did not make a bogey and birdied the final two holes. "It would just be nice if it was sooner rather than later".

Rahm, who won the CareerBuilder Challenge last month, is a shot adrift after also finishing strongly, the Spaniard making five birdies on the back nine. "... It just sucks, man, to play so well and have a really, really, really good chance to win this tournament, and to give it away in two holes really".

Reavie birdied the final two holes for a 67.

"If you look at it it looks like a very simple, solid bogey-free round, five-under". He was tied with reigning Rookie of the Year Xander Schauffele (66) and Daniel Berger (68). "I think it's been a big instrument in allowing me to get into the round and play and have fun and get out of the technical side". If we had kept playing a couple more holes, they probably would have caught up and all of us would have finished at 13- or 14- or whatever it was.

It also means that there will be a new victor today, with Rickie Fowler surviving late miscues to share the second-round lead alongside Bryson DeChambeau.
