A week too late
CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) David Mathis hoped to start strong at the Travelers Championship after missing the cut last week in the U.S. Open.
The 38-year-old Mathis birdied his first hole, then holed out from 158 yards on the par-3 11th hole. He knocked in a 49-foot birdie putt on his third, was at 6-under par after six holes, and fished with a 6-under 64 for a one-shot lead.
''It was an awesome start,'' said Mathis, who has never finished better than eighth in a PGA Tour event. ''I was hitting a lot of great shots (later), and I guess it felt like a lull compared to how I started.''
