Kevin carded seven birdies in a row to score a final round of -6 under par 64, and win the Travelers Championship with a -15 under par total.
“It’s probably my favorite nine holes on the PGA Tour, but you can’t plan for something like that to happen. It just kind of falls into place. I had 10 one-putts in a row, that’s something I’ve definitely never done before. I didn’t have too many expectations coming here.”
“I knew when that putt fell on 16 that something kind of special was happening. I was thinking about her (Sophie) on those last couple of putts. I was thinking, `You know what? If these go in, great. If not, great. She’s going to love me either way and we have a nice family vacation coming up either way.”
“When you’re in the zone like that, when athletes talk about being in the zone, everything is really slow, and it’s really clear and concise, and it’s very vivid, the lines are easy to see. The hole seems to appear bigger. It’s almost to a point it doesn’t matter how you read the putts because you just know they’re going in before you hit them.”
Sergio Garcia and K.J. Choi tied for second place, at -14 under par, Sergio said it was just not his day;
“At the end of the day he played really, really well, I feel like I played quite nicely and it just wasn’t my time.”
