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 one-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 fairway and the green, with Spieth providing the final dramatics from 61'5" away.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 160 C.T. Pan back-pedaled with an even-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, falling four places into a six-way T8 on 8-under 272.

After opening in 70-68-64, the 25-year-old began T4 on 8-under, four back of 54-hole leader and eventual champ Jordan Spieth. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 2.492 strokes around-the-green and 4.145 tee-to-green. The University of Washington alum cancelled three birdies at Nos. 3, 12 (from 20'0") and 17 (from 23'1") with three bogeys at 1, 6 and 10, all failed scrambles. He posted 1.727 putts per GIR and 3.226 SG: Putting, buoyed by three par-savers from between six and 10 feet. The Taiwan native nets his second top 25 at the Travelers in two tries (T25/2015) and third top 25 of the season in 23 starts, all three doubling as top 10s.

World No. 221 David Hearn patched together a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to finish up on 8-under 272, down one place to a season-best T8.

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. This is his first top 25 at the Travelers in three attempts with a previous-best T38 on last visit in 2011, and fifth top 25 of the season in 22 starts and second straight top 10 (T10, FedEx St. Jude).

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 found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, currently T1 in the latter at 79.17 percent (57/72). The St. Johns alum circled three birdies at Nos. 7, 11 (from 30'7") and 15, taking some luster off with bogeys at 6 and a walk-off 5 at 18, both failed scrambles. 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. Playing out of the sixth-to-last twosome, he landed nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.514 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.256 tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum squared a lone bogey-4 at eight (failed sand save), currently T1 for the week with just four. He circled three birdies at Nos. 6, 13 and 15, each from 36 inches or less and two of those 2-putt versions. The North Carolinian posted a pedestrian 1.900 putt per GIR though 1.358 SG: Putting, buoyed by four par-savers from between six and 12 feet. This is his third top 25 at the Travelers in eight visits and second top 10 (T5/2013), and seventh top 25 of the season in 20 starts and third top 10.

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.

After opening in 69-67-68, the 40-year-old began T10 on 6-under, six back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. Playing out of the sixth-to-last twosome, he conjured six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.321 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.383 around-the-green. The UNLV alum circled four birdies at Nos. 6, 9, 13 and 15, highlighted by a hole-out 4 from a greenside bunker at the par-5 sixth. He posted a commercial 1.818 putts per GIR and 0.330 SG: Putting, needing 27 total putts. 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.

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. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed finished a season-best T5, three shots shy of a 2-man playoff involving Jordan Spieth and Daniel Berger.

After opening in 67-66, the 26-year-old was T2 thru 36 holes, falling back to T15 with a third-round 72. On 14 greens in regulation, he overshadowed three bogeys at Nos. 8 (3-putt from 56'4"), 12 (3-putt from 62'2") and 14 with seven birdies at 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10 and 13, four from between eight and 14 feet, adding a hole-out 3 at seven from a greenside bunker. The Texan gained 2.225 strokes off-the-tee but lost 0.100 on-the-green, posting 1.786 putts per GIR and 28 total putts. This is his third top 25 at the Travelers in six attempts and first top 10 (T11/2016). It's Reed's ninth top 25 of the season in 20 starts, sixth in his last seven, and just a second top 10 (T6, Hyundai TOC).

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.

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. After opening in 65-68, he was T2 thru 36 holes before falling back to T21 with 73 in R3. The Iowa native hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 2.325 strokes approaching-the-green though losing 0.931 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-6 at 13, offset by five birdies, including three in his last four holes. Merritt posted 1.583 putts per GIR and 1.048 SG: Putting, needing just 26 total putts.
