(Reuters) – Rickie Fowler, with one eye on Augusta, turned the other eye to the task at hand, coping with a number of “mud balls” to surge into the first round lead at the Shell Houston Open in Texas on Thursday. Former world number four Fowler skipped last week’s World Golf Championships match-play event, preferring instead to play the week before the Masters. “I like playing my way into majors and they’ve been able to do a great job here making it as similar to possible of what we may see next week,” Fowler told reporters.
