2019 Honda Classic scores, grades: Keith Mitchell holds off Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka in thriller


At one point Sunday on the back nine at the 2019 Honda Classic, the following golfers were tied for the lead at 7 under par with Rickie Fowler boiling just behind them.


He finished with two birdies in his last three holes to shoot 4-under 66 on the day and get in the house at 8 under, one ahead of Palmer and Glover.


Those two set the mark and dared anybody behind them to make it through the normally tough ending at PGA National unscathed and with a chance.


"These guys are awesome," Mitchell told Sands after bagging his first victory and scoring a Masters invite.


Mitchell played the back nine of his life on Sunday to post the fourth-best round of the day and beat out two of the best in the business late at PGA National.


So the end to a wild afternoon in Florida got maybe the wildest final act we could have imagined (unless you thought Singh was going to emerge victorious).
