"I can't do any more than that", he said. "So all these things just mean so much to my family".

Needing to catch up to Watson and running out of holes, he sailed his shot over the 16th green for a bogey and sliced his drive on No. 17 into the lake to drop another shot.

Bryan tee shot went 238 yards to the left side of the fairway and his chip went 25 yards to the green where he had a two-putt for bogey, bringing Bryan to even for the round.

Fred Couples (67) - the tournament's 2017 champion - Kent Jones (67), Billy Mayfair (68) and David Toms (66) were a stroke back, and eight golfers were at 8 under.

He showed a command of the course by shooting 5-under yesterday on the front nine that included eagle on 5.

Watson, 39, started the day six shots behind overnight leader Casey, but took the outright lead with a birdie on the 18th to finish on 17 under.

According to the PGA Tour, third-round leaders with four-shot margins have won 82 percent of the time since 2013. I had three tough holes left, but they had more holes. I would have loved to have won outright or at least have another go at him in a playoff would have been nice. There hasn't been a repeat champion in Cromwell since Phil Mickelson in 2001 and 2002.

Notable players finishing outside the top 10 included Rory McIlroy and Jason Day (11 under), recent U.S. Open champion Brooks Koepka (nine under), Zach Johnson (nine under) and last year's victor, Jordan Spieth (four under). He said his top priority right now is rest, but said that won't come until after he attends a bachelor party for his best friend next week.

Kerala football fan, who went missing after Argentina’s defeat, found dead
Police believe that Dinu Alex jumped into a nearby river named Meenachil and a search for him by the state Fire Force unit is on. However, it seems that no one is as disappointed by Argentina's performance as Dinu Alex from Kerala .

"It's been a pretty good week with the short game", Day said after finishing his round with a mere 26 putts. That's all it was, lack of focus, low energy.

Chase Seiffert, who was a Monday qualifier into the tournament field, moved into second place after 10 holes of the final round.

"It's absolutely unbelievable. You can't really put it into words, but it's nearly like a second home".

There wasn't any fireworks on the final day from Jordan Spieth this year, but Jason Day chipped in from the rough at 18 to finish in a share of 12th with Rory McIlroy, who birdied two of his last four holes.

The 33-year-old former Nebraska player made a 12-footer to beat Brandon Hagy.

"I feel like my game's good enough to be out here full-time and kind of confirms that with the way I've been playing this week and past year here as well", he said.

Lee, the Volvik Championship last month in MI, bogeyed her final hole to drop into a tie with the 19-year-old Japanese player at 13-under 129.

David Lingmerth (Arkansas Razorbacks) shot a 66, his best round of the tournament, and finished tied for 19th at 9 under.
