Final Money, Points: 2018 Travelers Championship

Highlighted by a birdie on the 72nd hole, Bubba Watson posted a final-round 63 to claim his third Travelers Championship title, and his third win of the season.

Watson entered the day at 10-under par, and six shots back of Paul Casey, but early on the 40-year old Englishman seemingly played not to lose. And when he was finally caught in the middle of the back nine, Casey collapsed, allowing Watson to run away with a three-shot victory.

The Bagdad, Florida native finished his final day at TPC River Highlands with eight birdies, one bogey and nine pars en route to a four-day total of 17-under par.

The win earned Watson $1,260,000 and 500 FedExCup points, which moves him to No. 3 in the points standings behind only Dustin Johnson (No. 1) and Justin Thomas (No. 2). The 39-year old also picked up 58 Official World Golf Rankings points, and will move to No. 12.

Casey, meanwhile, posted a 2-over 74 and dropped into a tie for second at 14-under par, alongside Stewart Cink, Beau Hossler, and J.B. Holmes. The four players each were awarded checks for $462,000, along with 184 FedEx points and 21.6 OWGR points.
