Trailing by a shot to start the day, Kenny Perry (SciFlex glove) fired a bogey-free 7-under 63 to run away with the Travelers Championship on Sunday. He set the tournament scoring record with a 22-under 258 total (61-68-66-63), including a course record-tying 61 on Thursday, to win by three shots over David Toms (SYNR-G style #53883) and Paul Goydos (ReelFit style #53918, SciFlex glove).
Perry has now won five times in just over a year, the most of any player on TOUR, and 14 times in his career. His 258 tied the fourth-best 72-hole score in TOUR history and beat the old tournament record of 259 set in 1982.
The 48-year old Perry, the new leader in the Chase for the FedEx Cup, shot a 32 on the front nine and then birdied the tenth and eleventh holes. He was up by five strokes heading to the par-4 15th and put the tournament away by making birdie on No. 17 after hitting a 164-yard approach to within 8 feet.
"I knew that I had to keep making birdies," he said. "I wasn't going to let up. I wasn't going to play defensive golf. I learned something from that (Augusta) mistake."
