It's not hard to spot Rickie Fowler on the golf course. Dressed in his loud shirts and matching shoes, he usually sticks out like a sore thumb ... which probably isn't a good thing when you're trying to sneak up on the leaders and make a Sunday charge.

With the exception of Fowler's best friend Bubba Watson, who is currently a shot ahead of him, Fowler may be the biggest name within striking distance of the leaders going into the final round at Arnie's tournament.

Six back of Martin Laird, Fowler has an outside shot at catching the Scot, but he'd need a lot to go his way to get in contention. The good thing for Fowler is that he's played relatively well on Sunday this season, posting a 70 average in the four events where he's made the cut.

But to win his first event Fowler needs to go low in the final round. I mean, really low. With prime scoring conditions expected on Sunday, who knows what we can expect from Fowler. K.J. Choi threw up a 8-under 64, so you know low scores are out there. He just needs to get in birdie mode and see where he ends up.

It seems crazy to consider Fowler a contender at five shots back. But if this tournament has taught us anything over the years, it's that you should expect the unexpected.
