Travelers Championship tracker

UPDATE No. 18 (6:26 p.m. ET): Jordan Spieth! He buries a 20-footer for birdie at 18 after driving in the fairway bunker. What a way to finish. That’s 66, 12 under and a one-shot 54-hole lead. Remember, too, this is his first appearance at the event.

UPDATE No. 17 (6:03 p.m. ET): Weekley makes a short birdie putt at 18 and he’s in at 11 under. That’s 3 under in his final four and 5 under in his last eight to get in with 65. He’s tied for the lead with Spieth (on 17).

UPDATE No. 16 (5:55 p.m. ET): Spieth birdies the 16th, too, after stuffing his tee shot at the par 3. That keeps him one ahead at 11 under after Weekley made a birdie up ahead at 17.

UPDATE No. 15 (5:40 p.m. ET): Jordan. Spieth. Just as he’s fading, he nearly jars one for eagle at the 15th. AMAZING long bunker shot here. He’s now 10 under and snatches back the solo lead.

UPDATE No. 14 (5:20 p.m. ET): Spieth bogeys No. 14, too! That’s back-to-back bogeys and he’s now tied for the lead at 9 under with Daniel Berger and Boo Weekley.

UPDATE No. 13 (5:05 p.m. ET): Spieth hits it in the water off the tee at No. 13 and has to drop way back. He lays up from there and knocks it on the green. Two-putts from there for bogey. Not the best bogey, but it could’ve been worse. His lead is down to one, as Daniel Berger previously birdied that hole to move to 9 under.

UPDATE No. 12 (4:30 p.m. ET): Spieth birdies No. 11, too, and he’s now 11 under and three ahead.

UPDATE No. 11 (4:11 p.m. ET): So Spieth is in the lead by two again after nice birdie at No. 10. (He rolled in 9-footer.). He’s back to 10 under.

UPDATE No. 10 (4:06 p.m. ET): Well, Spieth is leading again. Charley Hoffman stubs chip, gets the next to 3 feet and then misses that shortie. Double bogey, and he’s now 8 under. Spieth is 9 under heading to the back nine. C.T. Pan is T-2 at 8 under thanks to a third-round 64.

UPDATE No. 9 (3:53 p.m. ET): And just like that, the leader has changed. Charley Hoffman eagles 13 and birdies 14 to move to 9 under. Then Spieth bogeys No. 9 to fall to 9 under. He was co-leading momentarily before Hoffman birdied 15 to move to 10 under. Now the solo leader by one.

UPDATE No. 8 (3:19 p.m. ET): Spieth stuffs it inside 3 feet at the seventh. Back-to-back birdies and he’s once again two ahead at 10 under.

UPDATE No. 7 (3:03 p.m. ET): David Hearn eagles 15 to move to 8 under. That means Spieth’s lead is one. A lot happening quickly.

UPDATE No. 6 (3 p.m. ET): Spieth chips in for birdie at the sixth to move to 9 under! He’s now two ahead!

UPDATE No. 5 (2:50 p.m. ET): Spieth solo leads again at 8 under after Reed double bogeys No. 4. A bad follow up after a big birdie. Spieth leads by one at 8 under.

UPDATE No. 4 (2:25 p.m. ET): McIlroy makes a Saturday change. Rory puts a new putter in the bag in Round 3. So far, dividends are not there. He’s already lost more than two strokes to the field putting in this round. Regardless, he’s 1 under for the day (and overall) through seven holes of Round 3.

UPDATE No. 3 (1:50 p.m. ET): Patrick Reed buries a 25-footer for birdie at the third, and that moves him to 8 under. After Spieth misses 15-footer for birdie, they are now tied for the lead. Troy Merritt misses 10-footer for birdie at the third and is one back.

UPDATE No. 2 (1:05 p.m. ET): The final threesome (Spieth, Reed, Merritt) is about to tee off. Meanwhile, Boo Weekley birdies No. 1 to move to 7 under and one back. Pan and Jason Kokrak are both two back after opening 31s (on the back nine) to start Round 3.

UPDATE No. 1 (12:30 p.m. ET): C.T. Pan, starting on No. 10, birdies 16 to make it four in his first seven holes. He’s rocketed up to 6 under and is now just two back with leader Jordan Spieth yet to tee off.
