Mark Wilson wrapped up his sixth Travelers Championship with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 and his 72-hole aggregate of 11-under 269 was good for three-way tie for seventh place.
Wilson's top 10 was a huge surprise this week. First, he's only cashed one paycheck in five previous appearances at TPC River Highlands (T63, 2013). Second, he hasn't had a top 10 since back-to-backs (T9, Sanderson Farms Championship; T8, McGladrey Classic) back in late October and early November. His best finish in calendar-year 2015 (13 starts) was T24 at the Valspar Championship. Wilson began the day at 9-under (T8) and five off the pace. On his round, he outpaced two bogeys with four birdies, with one of those bogeys coming at the last, dropping him out of a share of sixth place. His four circles came at Nos. 2, 9, 15 and 17, with each conversion coming from inside eight feet. His longest holed putt of the day was from 10'2" for par at the fourth. The 40-year-old's final-round stats show 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation finishing the tournament at 1.623 putts per GIR, second in that category for the week.
