Moore rides worry-free attitude to 54-hole lead


CROMWELL, Conn. – Ryan Moore has implemented a new strategy that’s vaulted him into a one-stroke lead going into the final round of the Travelers Championship.

Don’t worry, be happy.

“This week, I just told myself it doesn't matter,” he said after a third-round 4-under 66. “I'm not going to think about my golf swing. I'm not going to be worried about it or working on it after rounds. This week I just want to go play golf and just see what I can get out of every single round.

“And today was a great example of, it doesn't have to be pretty to shoot a good golf score. I honestly did not feel great all day hitting the ball, but drove it well enough to kind of keep myself out of trouble, and you know, in the end, you know, made an eagle, chipped in on another hole and was able to make another birdie there on 17 and somehow stayed away from all the bogeys.”

Following rounds of 63-68, Moore posted an eagle and two birdies without a single bogey to move into position for his fourth career PGA Tour win and second of the current season.

“I've had a lot of success and I've been there a lot of years,” he said of his track record in this tournament. “I've been in the mix going into Sunday. This is a tournament I really want to win I know it's a tournament I can win. And it's just a matter of going out and putting it all together for a week.”
