After opening up the Travelers Championship with a three-under 67, Rory stated that he is putting an expiration date on his putter.

After predicting earlier that it would take a score of 16 under to win, the twotime major champion took a 12-under 198 total into the final round.

The entertaining Boo Weekley joins Tim Barter at the Sky Cart to reflect on his superb third-round 65 at the Travelers Championship.

Reed, a team-mate of Spieth's at the past two Ryder Cups, moved within a shot of the leader with a 13-foot birdie at the final hole in a testing afternoon breeze.

Elsewhere England's Paul Casey has an outside chance of causing an upset in CT as he carded a four-under-par 66 and is four shots off the lead going into the final round.

The Dubliner came into the weekend just three shots off leader Jordan Spieth (-11), but now trails by seven ahead of the American's third round at TPC River Highlands in CT.

The cut fell at even-par 140, with Rory McIlroy (73) making it on the number after bogeying the final hole, where his approach shot came up short of the green after his back foot slipped during his downswing. And he finished his day with another birdie, walking off the course with the lead he will carry into the final round Sunday. She had her lowest score on the LPGA Tour and matched her professional best set in the 2012 Australian Ladies Masters.

Defending champion Lydia Ko was 5 under after a 67.

Also suffering frustration was Charley Hoffman, who at one point took over at the top with four birdies across the front nine.

Former Virginia golfer Ben Kohles (minus-7) is tied for 20th, while another ex-UVa player, Denny McCarthy (minus-2), missed the cut by one shot. I just made a lot of bogies as well.

"I hope I'm having as much fun each day as Boo's having", Spieth said.

"It was a tougher day today with the wind, " Broadhurst said. I hadn't really hit the ball strong, especially off the tee.

Only 23, Spieth is trying to win his 10th PGA event since turning pro four years ago and his second this season. He won the Senior British Open and PURE Insurance Championship previous year. "But I think it was great to have two weeks off, because when you have two weeks off you totally forget about how you played the last few tournaments".

Brian Henninger had a 65, and tournament host Steve Stricker joined Kenny Perry and Billy Andrade at 66. In three starts at this event, this is Day's first missed cut.

Canada's Graham DeLaet reached nine-under for the tournament in his second round thanks to back-to-back birdies at the par-5 sixth and par-4 seventh and again at the par-3 11th and par-4 12th, sinking a 35-foot par putt at 11 and a 15-footer at the 12th.

"It's going to be really good conditions tomorrow, so expect some guys to make some birdies and make a run".
