Arizona State product Chez Reavie took sole possession of the Waste Management Phoenix Open lead in the final round of the tournament on Sunday.

Reavie’s birdie on a par-4 fifth hole gave him a 16-under and two-shot lead on a trio of Martin Laird, Gary Woodland and Rickie Fowler at TPC Scottsdale.

With Woodland and Laird also starting the day off hot, Reavie kept pace by making a chip-in recovery on the sixth hole.

Reavie began Sunday a shot back of the lead but made the leap up the board with an eagle on the par-5 third hole.

Fowler began the day at 14-under through three rounds.

Fowler shot a 4-under 67 on Saturday to reach 14-under 199 with a round left at TPC Scottsdale’s Stadium Course, the fan-friendly layout packed with an estimated 216,818 fans on an 80-degree afternoon.

Former Arizona State players Jon Rahm and Reavie were a stroke back along with Bryson DeChambeau. Phil Mickelson was two shots behind, another former Sun Devils star riding the crowd support.

The crowd on Saturday pushed the week total to 654,906, just short of the record of 655,434 set last year.
