A Few Notes

  • Through two rounds at the Travelers Championship, a few names have risen to the top with a sizable edge over the rest of the field. Will Gordon and Mackenzie Hughes (both at -12) are far from household names, but Phil Mickelson (-13) made a late surge on Friday to take sole possession of the lead. Mickelson was still just +4500 to win after Thursday’s first round but is now the co-favorite at +500.
  • The remaining players are all three or more shots behind the leaders, but some of the world’s best golfers are still in contention. Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau, Abraham Ancer, Marc Leishman and Dustin Johnson are among the favorites to come out on top.
  • This week’s list of big names to miss the cut includes: Justin Thomas, Bubba Watson, Justin Rose, Gary Woodland, Collin Morikawa and Tony Finau.
