2022 Travelers Championship leaderboard: Live updates, full coverage, golf scores in Round 4 on Sunday - CBS Sports

1 month ago 73

The final pairing of the Travelers Championship on Sunday will feature the same two guys featured in Saturday's final pairing: Xander Schauffele and Patrick Cantlay. That duo took just 130 strokes on Saturday, and if that's the total again on Sunday, then it's almost certain that one of them will win (only one other golfer is within two of Cantlay).

Schauffele leads at -17, but Cantlay (-16) closed the gap to one stroke after shooting a comfortable 63 in the third round. Now, the pair will duke it out for what would be the second win of the year for both of them after they took the Zurich Classic while playing together last month as a team.

It would be an upset if anybody other than one of those guys walked away with the trophy on Sunday, but also a compelling story. Sahith Theegala, who has had a fabulous rookie year, is 11-1 to win on Sunday and would have been shorter if not for a bogey at the final hole in Round 3. He could overtake Cameron Young, Davis Riley and Mito Pereira as top rookie of the season with a victory on Sunday at TPC River Highlands. Following his heartbreaking loss at the Phoenix Open earlier this season, he'll have plenty of backers on Sunday as he tries to chase down Cantlay and Schauffele at what should be a fantastic closing round at the Travelers.

Keep it locked here as CBS Sports will be keeping track of everything with live updates and analysis throughout Round 4. You can watch the final-round action live on CBS, CBSSports.com and the CBS Sports app from 3 - 6 p.m. ET on Sunday.

Story of the day

The winner will undoubtedly get all the headlines -- whether that's Cantlay,. Schauffele or Theegala, but for me the story of the day right now is what amateur Michael Thorbjornsen does over these last 14 holes. He's currently inside the top 10, and his T7 after 54 holes marks best 54-hole position by an amateur at this event in 38 years.

There are now two at the top

After making bogey on No. 1, Patrick Cantlay bounced back with a birdie on his second to return to 16 under. Meanwhile, Schauffele dropped a shot on the short par-4 second as the two Ryder Cup friends now share the lead and are one stroke ahead of Sahith Theegala.

Players getting beat up by No. 1 

A number of players have gone through the first hole and have dropped shots. Kevin Kisner just stuck his approach from the rough in tight and will have a nice opportunity to to get closer to Xander Schauffele who is about to begin his final round alongside Patrick Cantlay.

Nice to see defending champion Harris English faring well

It has been a tough 2022 for English as he was away from the sport for more than four months due to hip surgery. In his third start back, he has a realistic chance to capture a top-10 finish and propel his name into the latter stages of the PGA Tour season.

World No. 1 improving each round

Signing for rounds of 68-67-65, Scheffler has slowly but surely gotten more comfortable around TPC River Highlands this week. He is seven strokes back which seems to be the lucky number this year and will need to fire something in the low 60s to even have a remote chance of win No. 5.

Finau on the cusp of another quality finish

It was a poor start to 2022 for the former United States Ryder Cup member, but in recent months, Finau has turned things around. Finishing inside the top five at the Charles Schwab Challenge and runner up to Rory McIlroy at the Canadian Open, he is hoping to bounce back from his poor play at the U.S. Open with a similar result as he begins the day in a tie for 15th.

Cantlay's season could take a big upswing with a victory

Beginning the day only one stroke out of the lead, the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year has enjoyed a good, but not great 2022. A playoff loser twice and a consistent fixture on the first page of the leaderboard, a victory today would help propel Cantlay into the FedEx Cup Playoffs where he was oh so effective last season.

This would be Xander's first "normal" win in half a decade

The Olympic gold medalist remains an enigma. First breaking through on the PGA Tour at the 2017 Greenbrier Classic, Schauffele has not won a full-field stroke-play event since. With his latest win being a team victory alongside Patrick Cantlay, Schauffele will look to get the job done by himself en route to PGA Tour win No. 6.
