Career low score just 'motivation' to do better, says ToddSports | ASSOCIATED PRESS 29 Jun 2020
Brendon Todd and Dustin Johnson each shot career low 61s at the Travelers Championship on Saturday, leaving Todd with a two-stroke lead over the 2016 US. Open champion.
The 34-year-old Georgian, playing a couple holes behind Johnson, had a chance at the tournament's second 60 of the week but missed a 10-foot putt to the left on the 18th hole.
He finished with a 54-hole score of 192, 18 under par. Johnson, who is looking for his 21st win on tour, also has improved each day. Both shot bogey-free rounds, with Todd making five birdies on the front nine and Johnson five on the back.
Todd said the round became a game of whatever you can do, I can do just as well.
"It's hard to miss the leader boards obviously, so [Johnson's] name was up there from a pretty early point,'' Todd said. "Again, I just use it as motivation to go out there and make some more birdies.''
