CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) — Kenny Perry shot 63 Sunday to finish with a tournament-record 258 and win the Travelers Championship by three strokes over Paul Goydos and David Toms.
The 48-year old Perry, who led after each of the first two rounds, trailed by a stroke to Paul Goydos heading into Sunday.
But he shot 32 on the front nine and was up by five strokes heading to the par-4 15th.
Goydos made a 20-foot eagle putt from the fringe on 15 and birdied 16. But he missed his birdie putt on 17 to the right.
Perry birdied 15, and put the tournament away by making birdie on 17 after hitting a 164 yard approach to within 8 feet.
