Watch: Fowler's long birdie putt
Rickie Fowler drains a 33-foot putt at the par-4 10th during Saturday's third round.
Just three times in the history of THE PLAYERS Championship has the eventual champion also won the previous week on the PGA TOUR.
Fowler, fresh off Sunday’s win at the Wells Fargo Championship – the first TOUR win of his career – could make it two straight if he can complete the deal on Sunday at TPC Sawgrass.
