Travelers Championship: Day 3 recap

Danny Lee shot a four-under 66 in his third round to move up a few spots at the US PGA Tour's Travelers Championship

Bubba Watson stormed back from six strokes behind in the final round to overhaul Englishman Paul Casey and win the Travelers Championship by three strokes in Cromwell, Connecticut on Sunday. You could argue it's his best as a pro, I suppose, although 2014 when he won at Riviera and Augusta National was pretty nice.

Russell Henley was 12 under after a 67, while third-round leader Brian Harman (69), J.B. Holmes (65) and Anirban Lahiri (65) were tied for third at 11 under.

According to the PGA Tour, third-round leaders with four-shot margins have won 82 percent of the time since 2013.

Spieth finished the day with a 1-under-par 69 to reach 4-under for the tournament, well off the 12-under and subsequent playoff victory over Daniel Berger he enjoyed here a year ago. 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.

Regardless, Bubba Watson told Channel 3 Sports Reporter Caroline Powers on Sunday that no matter what, he'll be back to defend.

The two are expected to speak this evening at a reception for the price at the British ambassador's residence in Ramat Gan. William, an avid soccer fan, arrived in Jordan on Sunday afternoon, as the England-Panama World Cup match was underway.

"It was clinical. I did everything I wanted to do". 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.

Henley said: "I'm definitely hitting it well enough, and if I can get a couple putts to fall, that would be good". But I can't control what (Casey) is doing. Behind them were four-time major victor Rory McIlroy as well as two Americans, Brian Harman and Peter Malnati, at 6-under.

U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka shot a 69 to get to 4 under and was tied for 38th. That year, the four major winners only had five wins total, and Keegan Bradley was the only multiple tournament victor (he won the Byron Nelson and PGA Championship). He got to see me qualify for the Ryder Cup at this event.

PULHEIM, Germany - Danish golfer Lucas Bjerregaard shot a 5-under 67 to equal the week's lowest round for a six-way share of the lead after the third round of the BMW International Open. He almost drove the par-four ninth hole to guarantee a birdie, before sinking a 50-footer at the next to move within three. The 26-year-old former Florida State star also qualified last year and tied for 43rd. The 22-year-old Australian is ranked ninth in the world and in search of her fifth career victory.

Casey's day started badly with a tee shot that rattled off some trees back into the first fairway.
