CROMWELL, Conn. -- TPC River Highlands is no stranger to low scores, and we’re seeing one from Brian Davis right now.
The 37-year-old Englishman who has five times been a runner-up on the PGA TOUR just made the turn in 29 after six birdies through his first nine holes.
Davis has yet to miss a green in regulation and has missed only one fairway here in the third round.
In case you’re wondering, the course record here is 60, which was shot by then-amateur Patrick Cantlay in last year’s second round.
He’s not the only player going low, though.
Padraig Harrington is 5 under through 12 holes and within three of Davis. Chez Reavie and Bubba Watson are also 5 under on their rounds.
In all, there are 18 players within four shots of Davis at the moment.
