CROMWELL, Conn. -- Four of the last six winners at TPC River Highlands were first-time champions. It’s early, but things are shaping up for that to perhaps happen again.
Rookie Will Claxton currently leads at 10 under -- he was at 11 under until dropping a shot on the par-4 fourth -- while Greg Chalmers just went out in 30 and is one shot back.
Brian Davis and Roland Thatcher, neither of whom has won on the PGA TOUR, are also 9 under, as is defending champion Fredrik Jacobson.
In all, 15 players are currently within three of the lead, including 2010 Travelers winners Bubba Watson.
