If this is indeed Corey Pavin’s last Travelers Championship, as he said it might be earlier in the week, he’ll not only be sticking around for the weekend, he could be contending. Pavin is 3 under on his round through 12 holes today and 8 under for the tournament, which puts him within six shots of the lead.
Pavin nearly won this event in 1991, when he sank a long putt on the final hole Sunday to reach a playoff with Billy Ray Brown and Rick Fehr. Brown went on to win the playoff and Pavin hasn’t contended since. -- Brian Wacker
