World No. 16 Paul Casey bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to wrap on 9-under 271, down one place into a three-way T5, three adrift of a 2-man playoff involving Daniel Berger and eventual champ Jordan Spieth.

After kicking off in 68-68-66, the 39-year-old began T4 on 8-under, four back of Spieth. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he striped 13 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, No. 1 in driving accuracy at 80.36 percent (45/56). The Englishman gained 1.853 strokes off-the-tee but lost 1.129 strokes around-the-green and 1.296 on-the-green, taking 31 total putts. He circled four birdies at Nos. 2 (from 23'0"), 6, 12 and 15, slightly outpacing bogey-5 at 3 and double bogey-6 at 10 after taking four to get on the surface. Casey missed four scoring tries from inside of 12 feet. It's his 11th top 25 of the season in 17 starts, fifth top 10 and second top 5, and his third top 25 at the Travelers in three attempts, second top 10 and second top 5 (P2/2015).

World No. 390 Boo Weekley backed up with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to post 9-under 271, down three spots to a season-best T5, three short of a 2-man playoff involving Daniel Berger and overnight leader and eventual champ Jordan Spieth.

After kicking off in 66-68-65, the 43-year-old began in solo 2nd, one back of playing competitor Spieth. It was the highest up the leaderboard he's been since the 2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational 108 starts ago, which he went on to win for his most recent (of three) TOUR titles. The Floridian found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.758 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.919 strokes against the field. He circled three birdies at Nos. 3 (from 19'2"), 6 and 7, the latter a hole-3 from a green side bunker 71'0" feet away, outbalanced by five bogeys at 4, 5, 8 (3-putt from 30'2"), 10 and 16. Weekley posted 1.917 putt per GIR and a dismal -3.094 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. This is his first top 25 of the season in 22 starts, and first top 10 since 5th at the 2016 Phoenix Open 72 weeks ago. It's Weekley's second top 25 at the Travelers in six attempts and first top 10 (T14/2009).

World No. 99 Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 10-under 270, up four spots to a season-best T3, two swings shy of a 2-man playoff involving Daniel Berger and eventual champ Jordan Spieth.

After opening in 68-67-68, the 26-year-old began T7 on 7-under, five back of Spieth. Playing out of the fifth-to-last twosome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.060 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.468 tee-to-green. The South Korean-born New Zealander squared bogey-6 at six and bogey-5 at 14 (failed scrambles), outpaced by five birdies at Nos. 4, 7-9 and 15, three from between 19 and 34 feet, adding a hole-out 3 at the fourth from 51'5" away. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 2.549 SG: Putting. This is Lee's seventh top 25 of the season in 23 starts and third top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T5 at the Byron Nelson four starts ago. It's his second top 25 at the Travelers in five attempts (second straight), joining T25 on last visit in 2015.

World No. 28 Daniel Berger fashioned a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to match overnight leader Jordan Spieth on 12-under 268, and then lost on the first playoff hole, the par-4 18th, with Spieth holing out for birdie-3 from a green side bunker to claim the trophy.

After kicking off in 68-67-66, the 24-year-old began solo 3rd, three shy. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, scratching out 0.058 strokes tee-to-green. The Florida State product opened with bogey-5 at the first (failed scramble), but then played his final 17 in blemish-free 4-under, circling Nos. 2, 13, 15 and 17, all from inside of 11 feet. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 2.023 SG: Putting, buoyed by three par-savers from between seven and 15 feet. In sudden death, both players missed the green in regulation, with Spieth holing out from 61'5" away, and Berger unable to match from the fringe from 49'5". Vying for his second win this season in 18 events, second in his last three starts, the Floridian settles for a second runner-up and drops to 0-2 in extra time. It's his second straight top 5 at the Travelers in two visits, finishing T5 last year after leading by three thru 54 holes and closing with 74.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and World No. 6 Jordan Spieth tossed up an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to match Daniel Berger on 12-under 268, and then defeated him on the first playoff hole with a hole-out birdie-3 from a green side bunker at the par-4 18th.

The 23-year-old, the pre-tourney fave outright (8/1), led after each of the first three rounds before Berger erased a 3-shot deficit with 67 out of the penultimate twosome. He claims a 10th TOUR title in 120 career events (112 pro), second this season in 16 starts, joining the AT&T Pro-Am, where he was also the 54-hole leader. The Texas product improves to 4-2 in extra time and 8-for-13 as the 54-hole leader/co-leader, converting eight of his last nine. After opening in 63-69-66, he began with a 1-shot lead over Boo Weekley, three clear of Berger. The Texan conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.716 SG: Tee-to-Green though -1.635 SG: Putting. He cancelled three birdies at Nos. 1, 2, and 15 with bogeys at 4, 12 (3-putt from 51'9") and 14, taking 1.833 putts per GIR and 29 total putts. In sudden death, both players missed the green in regulation, with Spieth providing the final dramatics from 61'5" away.

After kicking off in 67-70-66, the 38-year-old began T7 on 7-under, five back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.173 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.888 tee-to-green. The University of Wyoming alum outpaced three bogey-5s at holes 2, 4 and 14 (failed scrambles) with four birdies at 6, 11 (from 31'6"), 13 and 15, posting 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.968 SG: Putting.

World No. 120 Keegan Bradley carved out a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 8-under 272, down one spot to T8 with play winding down.

After opening in 67-70-66, the Vermont native began T7 on 7-under, five shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and a disappointing -0.820 SG: Putting. The 31-year-old's records his third top 25 at the Travelers in seven tries (second straight) and first top 10. It's his eighth top 25 of the season in 21 starts and fourth top 10, first since a season-best T4 at the Farmers back in January.

World No. 62 Webb Simpson signed for a 2-under-par 35-33=68 after the final round of the Travelers Championship to finish up on 8-under 272, up two places to T8, two back of 72-hole co-clubhouse leaders Charley Hoffman and Danny Lee.

After kicking off in 70-68-66, the 31-year-old began T10 on 6-under, six adrift of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

World No. 49 Charley Hoffman smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to reach 10-under 270, up eight spots to T2, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and the only blemish-free round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman finished in a two-way T3, two shots out of a 2-man playoff involving Jordan Spieth and Daniel Berger.

This was the California native's 10th top 25 of the season in 22 starts and fifth top 10, second straight after solo 8th at the U.S. Open. If the runner-up holds, it'll be his second this season, joining T2 at Bay Hill (as 54-hole co-leader), and seventh in 328 career events. It's Hoffman's fourth top 25 at the Travelers in eight tries, and third top 10 with a best of T2 in 2012.
Jun 25 - 5:15 PM

World No. 17 Patrick Reed hit all 14 fairways en route to a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to post 9-under 271, up nine places to solo 6th, good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead, though three shy of the leader on the course Jordan Spieth, who's playing the 13th.

World No. 341 Troy Merritt rallied for a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 8-under 272, up 14 spots to T7 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Merritt finished a season-best T8.

Arriving off four consecutive missed cuts, the 31-year-old posts a fifth top 25 of the season in 21 starts, and possibly a first top 10. His previous best was T11 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms back in late-October. It's the Boise State product's second cash at the Travelers in six tries, brushing aside a previous-best T67 in 2014.

Past champ and World No. 889 Hunter Mahan fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to wrap on 6-under 274, up 12 places to T16 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Mahan finished T17.

The 35-year-old won his first of six TOUR titles here in 2007 (playoff). He's not won since the 2014 Barclays, but this is his first top-25 finish since T19 at the no-cut 2015-16 WGC-HSBC Champions in November, 2015 (85 weeks and 39 starts ago). It's the Oklahoma State product's eighth top 25 at the Travelers in 16 appearances, first since T24 in 2013. It should be noted that two of his career-best rounds on TOUR (in 1,218 career rounds) have taken place at TPC River Highlands, including a career-best 61 in R4 of the 2012 edition to finish T11. Mahan, making his 20th start of the season, posted rounds of 68-71-68-67, carding one eagle and 16 birdies against 10 bogeys and one double.

Past champ and World No. 139 Kevin Streelman painted a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to reach 8-under 272, up 35 spots on the live leaderboard to T7 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with Brandt Snedeker and Rory McIlroy. UPDATE: With play completed, Streelman finished T8 and his 64 remained tied for the low round of the day.

This 2014 winner was making his 10th appearance and will post a fourth top 25 and should be a fourth top 10. It's his seventh top 25 of the season in 20 starts (third straight) and potentially just a second top 10, joining T4 at the OHL Classic back in mid-November. After kicking off in 69-70-69, the Duke alum began T42 on 2-under, four short of the overnight top 10. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.923 strokes tee-to-green. The 38-year-old, who's not won since here in 2014, camouflaged a lone bogey-5 at 14 with seven birdies at Nos. 3, 6, 8, 11, 13, 15 and 18, walking off with a 3 from 25'0", his long of the day. Streelman posted 1.625 putts per GIR and 2.343 SG: Putting, projecting to jump 16 spots in the FedExCup standings to 75th.
Jun 25 - 2:59 PM

World No. 32 Brandt Snedeker twirled a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 7-under 273, up 42 places on the live leaderboard to T10 and tying the low round in the clubhouse with Rory McIlroy and Kevin Streelman. UPDATE: With play completed, Snedeker finished T14 and his 64 remained tied for the low round of the day.

This was the 36-year-old's 15th start of the season, eighth top 25 and possibly a fifth top 10, which would be his second straight (T9, U.S. Open). It was his sixth Travelers, fourth top 25 and potentially a second top 10, right on his best of T10 on last visit in 2015. After opening in 70-67-72, the Vanderbilt alum began T52 on 1-under, five shy of the overnight top 10. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.385 strokes tee-to-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 7,042. Snedeker was bogey-free 7-under thru 15 holes, circling Nos. 1, 5, 7 and 12-15 before squaring lone bogey-4 at 16. He posted 1.545 putts per GIR and 1.252 SG: Putting, currently 63rd (of 74) in SGP with a cumulative -2.129.
