The PGA Tour event in Cromwell, Connecticut recorded KH Lee and Satoshi Kodaira in the championship candidate group when they were within three strokes of the top of the table.

The award with a prize fund of $7.4 million, took place at TPC River Highlands, par70 and finished the penultimate round on June 26. This leg, at the opening recorded seven representatives from the most populous continent in the world.

But after 54 holes, Lee stood at T6 at -8 while Kodaira was at T9 (-7), next to two American stars – Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau. Lee is two strokes from the top of the board. The leading position is in a duel, consisting of Kramer Hickok and Bubba Watson.

In the third leg, Lee hit 69 strokes, Kodaira 68 strokes, and the third day average was at 70.06 strokes. The Korean golfer scored three bogeys through the first five holes but later added four birdies to bring the round point to negative, in which the first two put at least 5.8 meters, the rest within 1.8 meters.

“Three birdies in the first half of the field made the rest tense. But I tried to be optimistic. That’s how it worked and had a chance to fight for the title,” Lee said after the round.

Considering the performance of the two parts of the field, the Japanese player yesterday contrasted with Lee when he hit well in the first half – two birdies, no bogey and fluttering in the second half – two birdies made up for the bogey.

In the first two days, the Asian representative pair took turns “blowing fire” on their individual performance.

In the second round, Lee scored two eagles, three birdies, and only one bogey on the 64-stroke scorecard, thereby breaking up to T4 (-7) after 36 holes. And Kodaira hit 63 on the opening day to stand T1 with Hickok.

Travelers Championship 2021 after three rounds of unpredictable results. In the list of candidates besides Lee, Kodaira and five players in the top 3, there are 31 people who are theoretically able to go to the podium because they are within five strokes of the top of the table.

The prize fund is at $7.4 million, of which the champion receives $1.332 million, equivalent to 18% of PGA Tour practice.

Lee was born in 1991, has been playing professionally since 2010. But after 80 attempts on the PGA Tour in the past 11 years, he has only won one title – AT&T Byron Nelson on May 17. Kodaira is two years older than Lee, so far he has only been crowned in the US arena – RBC Heritage 2018.
