Rickie Fowler picked up his fourth career PGA Tour victory on Sunday, but it wasn't as smooth as the four-stroke barrier indicates. He started the day with a four-shot lead and won the Honda Classic by that much, but Fowler, who was 0 for 4 in converting 54-hole leads or co-leads entering Sunday, shot a two-over 37 on the front nine and saw his lead slip to one at times. "He hasn't learned how to do that yet." In his press conference, Fowler was asked specifically about Miller's comments.
