Chez Reavie shot a 69 on Sunday at TPC River Highlands to capture the 2019 Travelers Championship and ending a nearly 11-year win drought.

Reavie finished his final day in Cromwell, Connecticut with one bogey offset by two birdies to reach 17-under par, four clear of Zack Sucher and Keegan Bradley, who carded matching 67s to sit T2.

It was Reavie’s second career PGA Tour title, and first since the RBC Canadian Open in July, 2008.
