You Oughta Know: 2014 Travelers Championship

RSS

CROMWELL, Conn. – Here is everything You Oughta Know in advance of the Travelers Championship final round:

- Third-round leader Ryan Moore is in position to win his fourth career PGA Tour event and second of the current 2013-14 season. His previous victories include the 2009 Wyndham Championship, 2012 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and 2013 CIMB Classic.

- Moore is looking to join Jimmy Walker (3), Patrick Reed (2), Bubba Watson (2) and Martin Kaymer (2) as multiple winners on Tour this season.

- Moore is making his 17th start of the season this week and, in addition to the CIMB Classic win, has collected top-10 finishes at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open (T-9), Hyundai Tournament of Champions (10th) and Waste Management Phoenix Open (T-6).

- Moore is in search of his fifth top-10 finish at TPC River Highlands. He finished T-2 in 2006, T-4 in 2009, T-6 in 2011 and T-7 in 2013.

- Aaron Baddeley trails by one stroke after rounds of 67-66-65. This is the first time he’s been able to string together three sub-70 rounds on the PGA Tour since opening 67-68-69 at this event two years ago.

- In his 10th start at this tournament, Baddeley is in search of his first top-20 finish at TPC River Highlands. His best showing was a T-24 in 2011. 

- With a win this week, Baddeley would join Jason Day (WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship), John Senden (Valspar Championship), Steven Bowditch (Valero Texas Open), Matt Jones (Shell Houston Open) and Adam Scott (Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial) as Australians to win on the PGA Tour this season.

- In just his third start at this event and first since 2009, Sergio Garcia has played the TPC River Highlands layout in 10-under on the back nine and just 1-under on the front through three rounds.

- In nine PGA Tour starts this season, Garcia owns five top-10 finishes, including third-place results at the Shell Houston Open and Players Championship.

- K.J. Choi is making his sixth start in the Travelers Championship this week, with a best finish of T-18 in 2003. Before last year’s T-43 finish at TPC River Highlands, Choi had not competed in the event since 2006.
