Kevin Tway lit up the TPC River Highlands golf course on Saturday afternoon on his way to finding the top-10 of the Travelers Championship.
The model of consistency all week, after back-to-back two-under 68’s to put himself at four under for the tournament through Friday, Tway was a little more aggressive and continued to avoid most trouble on Saturday.
At one point, Tway sat at 10 under, but he finished his round with two bogeys on the final holes. His first 16 holes were played as well as any golfer has this week, though. He birdied four holes on the front nine and carded an eagle on the par 5 13th.
He is tied for sixth but Chez Reavie will be a tough man to track down on the final day, for he sits at 16 under and eight strokes ahead of Tway.
Viktor Hovland played well on Saturday, but will likely not be in contention for a top-10 finish. He birdied four holes, but had a double bogey on the back nine to sour his day. His round put him at four under for the championship.
Hovland tees off this morning to finish out his first PGA event as a pro and will try to finish as high as he can to earn money and points towards his tour card.
Matthew Wolff struggled mightily on Saturday. Despite scoring the same four birdies as former teammate Hovland, he could not avoid trouble. He had six bogeys and a double bogey to finish the tournament at a disappointing two over par.
