Paul Casey breaks out for the lead at the Travelers Championship

CROMWELL, Conn. (WTNH) - The rainy weather did not slow down the great golfers at the Travelers Championship in Cromwell Saturday.

Round Three took place Saturday at the TPC River Highlands, and it was tightly packed for awhile, but then one player broke away from the pack heading into Sunday's final, Paul Casey.

Casey had four birdies to capture an eight under 62 Saturday, giving him a four shot lead over Russell Henley.

Round Two leader Brian Harmon is among three golfers at minus eleven. Six shots back at ten under par are five guys; including Jason Day and Bubba Watson. Watson was playing well until he bogied 17 and 18, but he still has a shot if he has a big round on Sunday.

"My seven under yesterday, I need to be better than that," Watson said. "I'm going to have to get to ten. If the weather is better than this then the guys are going to make birdies."

Some other notables from Saturday include Rory McIlroy, nine under going into the final round, Justin Thomas at minus five, and defending champion Jordan Spieth is off the pace a little bit after a tough round Saturday. Spieth is at minus three going into Sunday.
