"Right now it's easy to think he can be Tiger Woods again and be the best in the world, but that would be a stretch for him", Harmon wrote.

No more birdies were forthcoming, however, and Fowler settled for a course-record 61 and an 18-under total of 270.

Woods, the former longtime world No. 1 and 14-time major champion, had not officially logged four competitive rounds since the Wyndham Championship on August 20-23, 2015. "He may now have chances to win on the PGA Tour again, but winning a major is a different animal".
