CROMWELL, Conn. -- When J.J. Henry won the Travelers Championship in 2006, the victory sparked a career year for the Connecticut native, who also made the Ryder Cup team that year.
Henry has a long way to go to get back to that point, but he took a good step Saturday, shooting a third-round 65 to get to 10 under with one round to play.
On the day, Henry hit 11 of 14 fairways and 14 greens in regulation on his way to 27 putts on what’s been a still very receptive course in terms of scoring. In all, Henry had six birdies and just one bogey.
“The greens are still soft,” Henry said. “It will be a putting contest.”
And a shootout. At the moment, there are 21 players within four shots of the lead, including Henry.
