On the Paul...
Words: Daniel Owen
While Brian Harmon may have taken the lead last night at The Travelers Championship, it was our man Paul Casey who flew up the leaderboard with a stunning 64.
Casey's six-under third round at the TPC River Highlands course put him to within three of the lead and a tie for fourth with Brandt Snedeker who shot a round of the day 63 and former Masters champion Zach Johnson.
"It took my time to get back to that sort of form. I took advantage of benign conditions before a little bit of rain came in," Casey said. "I've been striking it very well with good distance control. I understand my swing better than I used to and things are great off the golf course with Pollyanna and Lex." And while Valderrama might be heartbroken that Miss Pollyanna Woodward has become Mrs Pollyanna Casey and had a little boy, we think it's great she's helped Casey regain his form.
Brian Harmon birdied the final hole for a five-under 65 and a one-stroke lead over fellow Georgia left-hander Bubba Watson and Canada's Graham DeLaet. Bubba could have been further back after a slice into the trees but got a massive bit of cashback, bouncing high off the trees and ending up in a fairway bunker when he could have been dead and buried in the woods.
"It hit the tree and everybody roared," he said. "I had to ask the camera guy, and he said it was in the bunker."
