Then the 37-year-old Reavie sank a 14-foot putt on the next-to-last hole and eventually claimed his first PGA Tour victory in nearly 11 years by four shots over local favorite Keegan Bradley and Zack Sucher in the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands https://tpc.com/riverhighlands in Cromwell, Conn.

Chez Reavie smiles after winning the 2019 Travelers Championship - his first PGA Tour win since his rookie year in 2008.

He ended up with a four-stroke edge, primarily because Keegan Bradley's comeback bid hit a snag with a double bogey on the par-4 17th hole.

Reavie is already at 16-under overall and up by six shots after Saturday's third-round score of 7-under 63.

LPGA TOUR: Hannah Green has a one-shot lead going into the final round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship and fresh evidence that going after her first LPGA Tour victory at a major won't be easy. "I've been close, but it's just not the same". "Keegan was playing great and I kept missing putts", he said.

Bradley hit his tee shot into the bunker and sent his second shot over the green and double bogeyed the hole.

England's Paul Casey hit four birdies and an eagle in a final-round 65 to finish in a tie for fifth.

Reavie has put together two strong weeks in a row after tying for third place a week earlier in the U.S. Open.

I took the early set but then he got better and better. "So it's really special". "My hip felt great, there was no pain". But, following the operation by Royal surgeon Sarah Muirhead-Allwood, the Scot he has been given a new lease of life.

He putted well at Pebble Beach and most of this week, but made only two birdies on Sunday, including the big one at 17.

"I just tried to stay patient and tried not to press", Reavie said after watching Sucher make four birdies on the front nine.

Reavie responded with his lone birdie on the back nine at the 17th. His 14-foot birdie putt on No. 17 was followed by a shorter miss from Bradley, pretty much sealing the outcome.

"Ten was terrible and I deserved bogey, but man, three straight holes I hit shots that weren't that far off all behind the lip, so two of them plug and, yeah, rough, that's all you can say about it, " Sucher said.

"I saw that (Sucher) was at 15-under at some point", said Bradley, who was in the group immediately ahead. It was just tough. Man, I dreamt of this ever since I've come here when I was 10 years old. The Vermont native had the support of the New England crowd. It felt like a Ryder Cup for me. "It was so fun".

Sucher had led after the second round but fell away dramatically when he dropped five shots in three holes on the back nine on Saturday.

Flesch played the back nine at University Ridge in 5-under 31 to reach 11-under 133. "I mean the whole thing was unbelievable with the huge crowds, it was quite an experience". The trio finished 11 under for the week.

World number one Brooks Koepka, after a busy stretch that included winning the PGA Championship in May and finishing second at last week's U.S. Open, also shot 71 to finish at even par.
