Danny Lee took a three-stroke lead with a four-under par 67 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open at the TPC Scottsdale on Saturda and is at 13-under par.
"I have been struggling with my iron game, have been putting my ball on the right side a lot since I was playing in windy conditions last week. That doesn't help much," said Lee, who is seeking his second PGA Tour victory. "I'm putting the ball more in the middle and trying to hit my irons a little bit higher. I think it worked out."
Fowler, the leader after round one and recent winner of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, shot a one-under par 70 in a round that included three bogeys. He is at 10-under and tied for second with Hideki Matsuyama.
Phil Mickelson, a three-time winner at this event, fought his way back into contention after starting eight shots off the lead. Mickelson shot a bogey-free six-under 65 and is tied for sixth with second-round leader James Hahn, five shots off the lead.
Bryce Molder and Boo Weekley are four shots off the lead and tied for fourth place at nine-under.
