Marc Leishman shot a flawless, bogey free 62 to win the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT. The big Aussie began the day six strokes of the 54 hole lead and needed a big round to give himself a chance.
Leishman, in FJ ICON and StaSof, fired off 5 birdies on the front nine to race up the leaderboard. Then Leishman added three more birdies on the back nine to take the clubhouse lead at 14 under par. With many players still on the course, Leishman's lead was very much in doubt and he had to wait over two hours to see if the total would be enough.
Adding post round, "I didn't think it was going to be enough," continuing, "Golf is a funny game, a really funny game." His total held up giving Leishman his first PGA Tour win. The victory moves him to 23rd in the race for the FedEx Cup and his final round 62 is the lowest final round score by a champion this season.
