Bubba Watson and Kramer Hickok share top spot on the Travelers Championship leaderboard after 54 holes at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut.
Bubba and Kramer both carded third rounds of -2 under par 68 to top the Travelers Championship leaderboard at -10 under par;
Bubba has won here three times;
“When you’re playing in the afternoon you know the challenge ahead of you.”
“You don’t want to play safe. In my stage of my career if I have a chance to win I’m going to go for it. That’s the key. I’m not going to worry about third or fourth place. I am going to try to go for it if I can.”
Kramer went fly fishing on the nearby Farmington River after the first round, to calm his nerves
“I thought I’d be a lot more nervous than I am, I know those nerves are going to be there. It’s just embracing those nerves, not trying to fight it.”
“I’ve been in contention before, obviously, this is a bigger stage, but it’s just about going out there and playing golf, and I play my best when I’m relaxed.”
Tied in third spot at -9 under par are, Cameron Smith, Australia, -4 under par 66 today, Russell Henley, -2 under 68, and yesterdays leader Jason Day, with a much quieter round of even par 70 today after his 62 second round.
