Fowler has his best round, a 71

SAN FRANCISCO -- It hasn't been the most productive week for Rickie Fowler, but Saturday's third round at least gave him something positive to build on.

Fowler, playing in one of the early groups, shot a relatively stress-free 1-over 71, leaving him at 9 over heading into Sunday's final round.

Unlike his previous two days, Fowler did not suffer a double bogey on the front side of the Olympic Club. On Thursday, he doubled the par-4 fifth, and on Friday, he doubled the par-4 first and par-3 eighth.

But on Saturday, he started his round with eight consecutive pars before dropping a shot at the ninth. He then put together another par string of six holes, then birdied the par-5 16th for the second conecutive day.

He found trouble at the par-5 17th, a hole he had birdied the first two rounds, to drop another shot.
