Daniel Summerhays authored a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the Travelers Championship for a three-day total of 8-under 202, up 14 places to T10 with play still in progress.
The 32-year-old began R3 on 3-under (T24) after opening his fifth Travelers in 68-69, four back of a four, overnight co-leaders. In his other four attempts at TPC River Highlands, his best is 74th on debut in 2011 (69-67-75-74), and missed his last three cuts. The BYU product arrived off a season-best solo third at the PGA, his career-best major finish in six major appearances. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit a week-best 16 greens in regulation, posting 1.563 putts per GIR and 2.701 SG: Putting. Summerhays' seven-birdie lap featured a 21-footer at the par-4 first, a 37-footer at the par-4 ninth, and three straight on Nos. 14-16. He bogeyed the 10th on a failed scramble, whiffing his par putt from 34 inches, and the 18th after an errant tee shot, but canned a 44-footer for a one-putt bogey-5.
