Another topsy-turvy day at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, saw American Ryan Moore climb to the top of the leader board with the caveat that entering the final 18 holes on Sunday, this is literally anyone’s tournament to win.
Seventy-two players are below par as of the end of the third round of the Travelers Championship, and 19 of them are within five strokes of Moore’s top spot. His 4-under 66 on Saturday, highlighted by an eagle 3 on No. 6, got him to 13-under for the tournament, allowing him to climb from fifth to first.
Right behind him is Australia’s Aaron Baddeley, who shot a 65 to move from 10th to second. A four-man log jam comprises third place – made up of Sergio Garcia, K.J. Choi, Scott Langley and Michael Putnam.
Langley led through two rounds before shooting an even-par 70 on Saturday. Tied for second after two rounds, Choi and Putnam each finished Saturday 1-under with 69s.
That left Garcia, who fired a 5-under 64, the second-best round of the day, to vault from 13th to a tie for third. Garcia bogeyed No. 8 to hit the turn at 1-under, then rattled off four birdies between No. 11 and No. 16.
However, the round of the day went to American Kevin Streelman, whose 6-under 64 vaulted him from 39th to a tie for seventh at 9-under.
