CROMWELL, Conn. -- He had to wait over 2 hours, but it was worth it.
Marc Leishman shot an 8-under 82 to grab the early clubhouse lead Sunday at the Travelers Championship, then watched as everyone else around him collapsed.
When the tournament was finally over, Leishman was a winner at 14 under, one shot clear of Bubba Watson and Charley Hoffman, who threw away a once three-shot lead with a double bogey-bogey finish.
It’s the fifth time in the last seven years that a player recorded his first career win at TPC River Highlands.
