Top 3 Shots: 2018 Travelers Championship

Bubba Watson won the Travelers Championship after posting a final-round 7-under 63 at TPC River Highlands on Sunday. The 39-year-old Floridian finished at 17-under par, topping co-runner-ups Paul Casey, Stewart Cink, Beau Hossler, and J.B. Holmes by three shots.

It was Watson’s 12th career PGA Tour win, and third Travelers title. He is the first three-time winner of the 2018 season.

Before we move on to D.C. and The National, let’s look back at the three best shots from the 2018 Travelers Championship.


1. JORDAN’S HOLE-OUT BUNKER BLAST

The defending champion Jordan Spieth kicked off his title defense pretty much where he left off in 2017, with a sizzling opening-round 63, highlighted by a hole-out eagle from the bunker, en route to a share of the lead after day one.


2. HAHN’S HOLE-IN-ONE DUNK

In Saturday’s third round, James Hahn holes out on the par-3 11th hole. Using an 8 iron from 154 yards, Hahn sends his ball straight at the pin, and down into the hole. No grass. Slam dunk!


3. J.B.’S HOLE-OUT EAGLE-2

J.B. Holmes holes out from 143 yards for an eagle-2 on the par-4 14th hole during Saturday’s third round. The eagle highlighted a five-hole stretch which saw Holmes card birdie-birdie-par-eagle-birdie on hole Nos. 11-15 to rocket up leaderboard on moving day.
