For the second week in a row a former Georgia Bulldog shares the lead headed to the final round of a PGA Tour event. After Russell Henley suffered a late fade to fall from atop the leaderboard in last week’s US Open Bubba Watson is looking to avoid the same fate at this week’s Traveler’s Championship.
Watson sits tied at -10 along with Kramer Hickok. For his part Henley sits only one shot back at -9 in a three way tie for third. And if that wasn’t enough red and black at the top of the field heading into the final day of competition, Harris English is one shot further back at -8 and Brian Harman is only three shots off at -7.
All told there are 16 golfers within three strokes of the lead and a full quarter of them played their collegiate golf in Athens. Throw in Brendan Todd, who’s still in the thick of it at -6, and there’s a really solid chance that a University of Georgia alum is headed for a big win in Connecticut.
Early television coverage will begin at 1:00 pm eastern on Golf Channel, with live coverage moving over to CBS at 3:00.
