Watson overhauls faltering Casey to win Travelers title

Share

MADISON, Wis. - Esteban Toledo birdied four of the last six holes for a 6-under 66 and the second-round lead in the American Family Insurance Championship. In addition, Cink, Holmes, and Hossler will try to carry over their moment from the Travelers Championship.

"It was clinical", he said.

The third round belonged to Casey, who shot a 62 to finish Saturday's play at 16-under par. But clearly Casey was in control at that point, although things didn't turn out well for him on Sunday. Watson ranks No. 32 in strokes gained overall and is T12 in top-10 finishes.

Wesley Bryan hit 12 of 18 greens in regulation during his third round at the Travelers Championship, finishing at 5 under for the tournament. "I think I started the day 8th".

"I fist-pumped on 15", Watson said. Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Patton Kizzire, Jason Day and Justin Rose have all won twice but none have won a major championship and none can match Watson's collection of three victories, all of which have come in tremendous fields.

Watson also came from six back to win the 2010 event for his first tour title and beat Casey in a playoff in 2015. Casper won his fourth CT title in 1973. Teddy told me (about that approach shot), 'That's the best shot you ever hit.' And I had a couple of texts, Aaron Baddeley texted me and said, 'That's one of the best shots.' I said, yeah people don't know how hard that really is downwind and trying to get it to stop and check.

The AP cited two people with knowledge of the situation, but who only spoke under the condition that they would remain anonymous. But the volume of condemnation on breaking up families, from inside and outside the White House , finally overwhelmed Trump.

Morning rain and drizzle throughout the day kept the greens soft, but nobody was able to stay with Casey.

James Hahn made a slam dunk hole-in-one with an eight-iron from 154 yards at the par-three 11th.

"I won this year and I missed the cut last year", Watson noted.

Notable players finishing outside the top 10 included Rory McIlroy and Jason Day (11 under), recent U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka (nine under), Zach Johnson (nine under) and last year's victor, Jordan Spieth (four under).

It was a bit of a squirrely round, quite literally for Rory McIlroy. "It's not going to be gifted to you, especially in professional golf".

"Around here I feel pretty comfortable", he said. His opening tee shot was delayed when a squirrel camped right in front of him in the tee box. "You're so far back, you've got to kind of make a move and if you shoot 10 (under), you never know what can happen". Three selections will be announced by Captain Jim Furyk following the Dell Technologies Championship scheduled to be completed on September 3, 2018, and the final selection will be announced after the BMW Championship, which is slated to be completed on September 9, 2018. Meanwhile, McIlroy's 69 dropped him into a tie for eighth place.
