Sutherland sneaks up on lead

Kevin Sutherland has a history of strong performances at the Travelers Championship. Now he’ll try to win. Sutherland just capped off his second straight 65 to get to 10 under and within four of Justin Rose’s lead through two rounds at TPC River Highlands.

Since 2000, Sutherland, whose lone PGA TOUR victory came at the 2002 World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, has four finishes in the top 30, including three in the top 11, at the Travelers Championship.

“I’ve always liked this course,” said Sutherland, who didn’t touch a club for about 10 days before putting in about five days of practice the week before the Travelers Championship.

Not that Sutherland would like to continue to see TPC River Highlands play soft and easy.

“It would be nice to get it like it was 10 years ago,” Sutherland continued. “There were years when it played really firm and fast and unfortunately we haven’t been able to get that condition.” -- Brian Wacker
