Schauffele wins Travelers Championship ahead of Theegala and Poston

From Sky Sports:

Xander Schauffele won the 2022 Travelers Championship by two shots ahead of J.T. Poston and Sahith Theegala at TPC River Highlands.

The victory marked Schauffele's sixth career PGA Tour win and the first time he had successfully converted a 54-hole lead. He had held a one-shot advantage going into the final round on Sunday after rounds of 63, 63 and 67...

But Theegala would have a nightmare on the 18th. He put himself deep in a bunker off the tee and failed to get out of it at the first attempt. His bogey putt then lipped out and he recorded a double bogey which returned the lead to Schauffele.  Read more
