Overnight leader and World No. 28 Brian Harman labored to a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Travelers Championship, falling two places into a three-way T3 on 11-under 199, five adrift of leader Paul Casey, who carded a week-low 62. UPDATE: Harman will play out of the third-to-last twosome in R4 with Jason Day.

After kicking off with 64-66, the 31-year-old led three players by one shot, two clear of Casey. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.757 strokes tee-to-green and ekeing out a 0.108 SG: Total. The Georgia alum squared three back-nine bogeys at 12, 16 and 17, slightly outpaced by four birdies at 3 (from 18'0") and a hat-trick at 13-15, two of those two-putt varieties. He registered 1.833 putts per GIR and 0.865 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. Harman owns two TOUR titles in 202 events, one as 54-hole leader (2014 John Deere), and one come from behind 31 starts ago at the 2017 Wells Fargo (Eagle Point GC), where he came from two back with 4-under 68 and won by one.

World No. 112 Anirban Lahiri tossed up a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 11-under 199, up eight spots into a three-way T3, five shy of leader Paul Casey. UPDATE: Lahiri will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with J.B. Holmes.

Lahiri's career low in a now 250 rounds came here last year in his tourney debut, carding a bogey-free 63 in R2 en route to a T17. He's chasing his first TOUR title in 76 events, looking to better a career-best T2 at the 2017 Memorial. After opening in 67-67, the Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, resident began T11, four back of leader Brian Harman. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.360 strokes approaching and 3.137 tee-to-green. The 30-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 2 (3-putt from 21'0"), outpaced by four birdies at 1, 11, 15 and 16, and eagle-3 at 13 from eight inches after nearly holing his second from 210 yards away. He also had a near-ace at the 154-yard, par-3 11th, tapping in a 2 from eight inches. The Indian recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.971 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

World No. 93 J.B. Holmes enjoyed a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a three-day total of 11-under 199, up eight places into a three-way T3, five short of leader Paul Casey, who fired a week-low 62.

The 36-year-old is chasing his fifth TOUR title in 287 events, first since the 2015 Houston Open 77 starts ago, where he came from six back with 8-under 64 and won a 3-man playoff (Spieth, Wagner). After opening with 66-68, he began T11, four adrift of leader Brian Harman. The University of Kentucky product, who will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4, squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 8, outpaced by four birdies at 3, 11, 13 and 15, all from inside of six feet, adding a hole-out eagle-2 at 14 from 143 yards out. On nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, he gained 4.194 strokes tee-to-green but lost 0.086 on-the-green with 28 total putts.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, World No. 55 Russell Henley navigated a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole tally of 12-under 198, good for solo 2nd and four in arrears of leader Paul Casey, who fired a week-low 62. UPDATE: Henley will play with Casey out of the final twosome in R4, heading out at 2:00 PM ET.

This is the Georgia alum's highest position thru 54 holes since solo 3rd (and four back) at the 2017 Houston Open, which he went on to win by three with 7-under 65. That's his most recent (of three) TOUR titles in 147 events and came 33 starts ago. After kicking off with 66-65, the 29-year-old began T2, one back of leader Brian Harman. He found 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.547 strokes on approach but gaining 1.174 around-the-green and 0.797 off-the-tee. The South Carolina resident carded three birdies at holes 2, 11 and 13, two from between 20 and 32 feet, recording 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.685 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Thru 54 holes, he's the only player with multiple bogey-free rounds (2), and has just one blemish, a bogey-5 that came 42 holes ago.

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, World No. 13 Paul Casey twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 16-under 194, good for the low round of the week, a four-shot lead over Russell Henley, and matching his career low (in 743 rounds), realized in R1 of the 2015 Sony Open.

This is the Englishman's fourth 54-hole lead/co-lead in 233 events, first since the 2017 TOUR Championship, where he led by two and finished 5th after 3-over 73. He's previously 1-for-3 converting, shooting even-par 72 at the 2009 Houston Open, eventually winning his first TOUR title in a playoff. The 40-year-old, a playoff loser here in 2015, is chasing his third win, second this season in 25 starts. He came from five back at the Valspar (6-under 65) to win by one (Reed, Woods). After opening in 65-67, the ASU product began T5, two back of leader Brian Harman. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 2.508 strokes approaching and 4.324 tee-to-green. Casey circled six at holes 2, 3, 8, 9, 13 and 18, two from between 11 and 20 feet, adding eagle-2 at the drivable par-4 15th from 23'1". He posted 1.611 putts per GIR and 2.786 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

The 24-year-old mustered seven (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.442 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.424 approaching-the-green. He carded six birdies at holes 1 (from 32'2"), 3, 6, 11, 15 and 17, taking some luster off with back-to-back, 3-putt bogey-5s at 9 (from 30'11") and 10 (from 23'10"), and double bogey-6 at 4. He recorded 1.786 putts per GIR and -1.315 SG: Putting with 30 total putts, but did end with a 14'8" par-saver at 18.

Two-time past champ and World No. 20 Bubba Watson fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole total of 10-under 200, up two places on the live leaderboard to T6, six adrift of leader Paul Casey, who carded a week-low 62.

The 2010 and 2015 winner, both in playoffs, hit six (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.360 strokes off-the-tee and 1.108 around-the-green. He was bogey-free 5-under thru 15 holes, circling 1, 2, 7, 13 and 15, before consecutive bogeys at 16 and 17 (failed scrambles) set him back. The 39-year-old realized four conventional birdies, all from inside of seven feet, adding a hole-out 3 at the par-4 seventh from 39'8" away. He posted 1.733 putts per GIR and -1.301 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

The first-time member though not a rookie found nine (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.124 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.522 on approach and 0.385 around-the-green.
