Travelers Championship 2012: Leaderboard Updates, Highlights and More
After Webb Simpson's exciting US Open victory in San Francisco last week, the PGA Tour moves to Connecticut for the 2012 Travelers Championship.
Even though Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods won't be playing at the beautiful TPC at River Highlands this week, stars such as Keegan Bradley, Masters champion Bubba Watson, and Simpson will all give fans plenty to cheer about. In fact, all three of these golfers will be playing in the same group on Thursday.
Check back here for leaderboard updates, video highlights, and more from the Travelers Championship.
Update: Sunday, June 24 at 6:50 p.m. ET
Marc Leishman made a furious charge in the final round of the 2012 Travelers Championship to win his first PGA Tour tournament with a four-round score of 14-under par.
The 2009 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year started the day in 20th place, but used five birdies on the front nine and three on the back to shoot an eight-under par, the second-best score of the day.
Only Hunter Mahan had a better Sunday, shooting nine-under par to finish tied for 11th place at 10-under. Defending champion Fredrik Jacobson was unable to repeat in Connecticut and finished tied with three others in eighth place at 11-under.
Bubba Watson bounced back from his abysmal outing at the U.S. Open to finish tied for second with Charley Hoffman at 13-under par.
Roland Thatcher and Brian Davis, who were tied for the lead when play concluded on Saturday, finished at even-par for the day and tied for fourth place at 12-under par.
The River Highlands was much more forgiving than the Olympic Club was last week. Fourteen players finished at 10-under par or better, a stark contrast to the four-day massacre in San Francisco that saw many golfers struggling to reach even-par.
Next up is the AT&T National at the Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Maryland on June 28, where Nick Watney is the defending champion.
Here is the shot of the day from Rory Sabbatini.

Saturday means moving day on the PGA Tour, and there was some major movement on the leaderboard today.
Yesterday's leader, Fredrik Jacobson, was one of the movers. Unfortunately for him, he shot an even-par round of 70 and moved in the wrong direction. After three rounds he is now sitting in a tie for sixth-place with six other golfers.
There were some incredibly low scores by a number of players today.
Brian Davis shot a 64 to get to 12-under par to lead the tournament heading into Sunday. He is joined by Roland Thatcher, who shot a 65 to get to the same number.
There are 19 players within five strokes, and this golf course is going to be ripe for some more low scores tomorrow. It will be anyone's tournament to win, and the action should be gripping.

Webb Simpson will dominate this course after coming out victorious at the Olympic Club. His putting is fantastic right now, and if he continues to hit the fairways off the tee, he will be near the top of the leaderboard for the entire tournament.
Expect Simpson to go back-to-back in Connecticut and win the 2012 Travelers Championship.
