28, 2009PERRY SETS NEW SCORING RECORD FOR TPC RIVER HIGHLANDS (6:02 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry's final-round 63 gave him a total of 258, which breaks the 72-hole scoring record for TPC River Highlands: Lowest 72-hole scores at TPC River HighlandsYearPlayerScoreUnder Par2009Kenny Perry25822 under2000Notah Begay26020 under2000Mark Calcavecchia26119 under1999Brent Geiberger26218 under2008Stewart Cink26219 under PERRY NOTCHES 14TH CAREER WIN, TAKES FEDEXCUP LEAD (5:56 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry easily parred the 72nd hole for a 63, his second win of the year, and his first win in Hartford after 21 years of trying.

Perry's victory of worth 500 points, pushing him into the FedExCup points lead.

The victory also makes him a virtual lock for the Presidents Cup team in Harding Park this fall.

Here is a look at Perry's scorecard: PERRY BIRDIES THE 17TH FOR A THREE-SHOT LEAD (5:42 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry rolled in a seven-footer to move to 22 under.

With David Toms looking at a likely par on No.

18, it appears that Perry can seal the victory even if he double bogeys the final hole.

GOYDOS BIRDIES, MOVES INTO SOLO THIRD (5:30 p.m.) -- Paul Goydos hit his tee shot to seven feet and made the putt, putting him one back of David Toms and three back of Kenny Perry.

Perry easily parred the 16th after a safe two-putt.

Goydos is the only player today to go eagle, birdie on the 15th and 16th holes.


16 (5:20 p.m.) -- David Toms sank his 10-foot putt for birdie on No.

16 to get to 19 under, but Perry birdied the 15th hole to get to 21 under.

GOYDOS EAGLES DURING LIVE@ (5:18 p.m.) -- Paul Goydos still only has one birdie all day, but the veteran just picked up two shots with one brilliant putt from off the fringe on the par-4 15th.

Goydos hit a big drive onto the green at No.

15, but his ball rolled into the fringe.

Goydos had his caddie take out the flagstick, and Goydos rammed the putt into the hole for fourth eagle of the year.

TOMS CUTS PERRY'S LEAD TO TWO (5:15 p.m.) -- David Toms just hit his approach on No.

16 to 10 feet.

If he can birdie that hole, it would move him to 19 under, one back of Kenny Perry.

Toms has made only one bogey all week.

He's hit every fairway today and has missed only one green.

MooreRYAN MOORE IN THE CLUBHOUSE AT 17 UNDER (5:10 p.m.) -- It probably won't be good enough to win, but Ryan Moore closed out a brilliant, bogey-free 64 with a birdie on the final hole.

Moore rolled in a 36-footer for birdie on the 18th, which has given up just four birdies all day.

The final hole is averaging 4.226 in the final round, making it the toughest hole on the course.

It hardly seems like the hole that Hunter Mahan birdied twice on Sunday -- once in regulation, once in a playoff -- to win in 2007.

VERPLANK: EXPECT THE FINAL HOLES TO BE TOUGH ON LEADERS (5 p.m.) -- We're still about an hour away from conclusion of the Travelers Championship, and while it might appear that Kenny Perry has this thing in the bag, Scott Verplank thinks the final two holes could still make a difference.

Verplank, who shot 62 earlier today, had this to say about the closing holes: "Well, you know, 15 is what it is.

There are going to be big swings there, but the longer guys can get there.

I couldn't get there, but long guys can.

16 is your last really good birdie opportunity.

Playing down wind.

"The pin's in a pretty accessible front spot.

And then 17 and 18, you know, are with the wind in your face.

They're a little more difficult holes."MAHAN MOVES TO 17 UNDER (4:51 p.m.) -- Hunter Mahan just rolled in a 16-footer for birdie on the par-3 16th.

He's still three shots behind Kenny Perry.

MahanMAHAN MOVES INTO A TIE FOR THIRD (4:35 p.m.) -- Hunter Mahan has finished second, first and second here the last three years, and it appears he's got an excellent shot at keeping that streak alive.

Mahan has birdied the 12th, 13th and 14th holes, moving him to 5 under on the day and 16 under for the week, one shot behind second place John Merrick (17 under).

Mahan now heads to our LIVE@ coverage on the 15th hole.

He's two under on this hole through the first three rounds.

THIS IS TURNING INTO A ROUT (4:13 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry now holds a four-shot lead after rolling in a 28-footer for birdie on the par-3 11th -- it's his third birdie in the last four holes.

Goydos parred the hole and remains tied for fourth at 15 under.

Perry"Goydos said yesterday someone could come from five back with four to play.

Well, he's five back of Perry on 12 right now," Brian Wacker just Tweeted.

TWEETS AS LEADERS MAKE THE TURN (4:07 p.m.) -- Our Brian Wacker just Tweeted these updates: "Another birdie for Kenny Perry after hitting it to 16 feet and hole high at 10.

Goydos makes another bogey, sliding it by.""Bad mojo for PG.

After that missed putt, he pulled his tee shot into the trees left on 10.

All he could do was chase it near the green.""Things must be a little stormy in Sunshine Paul Goydos' world after missing the putt on 9.

Golden chance to get one back as they go to back."VERPLANK IN THE CLUBHOUSE AFTER A 62 (3:45 p.m.) -- Scott Verplank missed a 16-footer for birdie at the 18th hole that would have tied the course record.

He went for it, too: Verplank blew the putt four feet past but made his comebacker for par.

VerplankHis 8 under 62 is the low round of the day (naturally) and is Verplank's lowest round of the year by three shots.

Verplank's career low round is 61, which came at TPC River Highlands in 2001.

The finish virtually assures Verplank his first top-10 finish since the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard, where he was fourth.

Here is a look at his scorecard: TWO-SHOT SWING AT NO.

8 (3:36 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry just hit a mid-iron stiff at the 199-yard eighth (watch the shot), while Paul Goydos missed the green and failed to get up and down.

Perry has absolutely killed the eighth hole this week at TPC River Highlands:Trip deucesFinal RoundBirdieRound 3BirdieRound 2ParRound 1BirdieMORE COURSE RECORD NEWS (3:31 p.m.) -- Scott Verplank is the latest player with a chance to shoot 61 today.

He's 8 under on his round after a birdie during our LIVE@ coverage on No.


GOYDOS, PERRY TIED AGAIN (3:25 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry's lead lasted all of 10 minutes.

Paul Goydos poured in a 40-footer for birdie on No.

7 to get to 17 under.

As always we'll upload videos as they happen as post them to our video page.

NEW LEADER (3:15 p.m.) -- Kenny Perry just birdied the par-5 fifth after getting up and down from the bunker.

He's the first player to hit 17 under.

Paul Goydos remains at 16 under after his fifth par to start the day.

CBS IS ON THE AIR (3:01 p.m.) -- Jim Nantz has just opened the broadcast with shots of Lucas Glover (he's 2 under today) and Kenny Perry.

LIVE@ COVERAGE IN FULL SWING (2:58 p.m.) -- This tournament promises to go down to the final shot, and our exclusive video stream has been at the 15th and 17th holes all week to document the action.

The pin on the driveable 15th hole is in almost the same spot -- back left -- as Thursday.

WATSON FINISHES BOGEY, PAR (2:50 p.m.) -- Bubba Watson's spirited run at the course record ended when he missed the 17th green and failed to get up-and-down, but he's still in the clubhouse at 13 under.

Will it be good enough to remain in the top 10? The way guys are scoring so far, it might not hold up.

But a 63 is a 63 any way you look at it.

This was the third time this year Bubba's shot 63 or better -- he shot a 63 and a 62 (his career low) at the The 50th Bob Hope Classic hosted by Arnold Palmer in January.

Here is a look at Watson's scorecard: THE GREATEST PITCHER ON EARTH? (2:40 p.m.) -- Sandy Koufax played in the pro-am at the Travelers Championship on Wednesday, but it's another great pitcher, Paul Goydos, who has a shot at winning today.

Goydos Goydos is one of the best on TOUR with a wedge from 50 yards in, and he just showed us why.

As our Brian Wacker noted in his Twitter feed (see below), Goydos clipped a tree on the par-4 third hole and had to pitch out, leaving him 40 yards to the green.

Goydos expertly clipped a pitch to three feet to keep a share of the lead with Kenny Perry at 16 under.

It's no wonder: Goydos is 14th on TOUR when he has to scramble for par from more than 30 yards out, and when the distance is between 50 and 75 yards, he's especially deadly.

That is the main reason he's so good on short par-4s and long par-5s.

Here is a look at Goydos' stats from 50 to 75 yards this year: PGA TOUR leaders from 50 to 75 yardsRankRank last weekPlayerRoundsAvg.

Some of his early tidbits: "Goydos' tee shot on 3 was so far left it hit a tree and got knocked down short of the fairway and he couldn't reach the green.""The breeze has picked up considerably and could play a role on one of the shortest courses on TOUR.

Not for Perry though; birdie to tie lead.""Lots of love for Kenny Perry as he makes his way down 2 and good conversation between he and Goydos, talking economy and other things."WATSON NEEDS ONE MORE BIRDIE TO TIE COURSE RECORD (2:22 p.m.) -- Bubba Watson just hit it to 12 feet on the par-3 16th and made the putt for his eighth birdie of the day, giving him an outside chance to shoot 60 and break the course record of 61, which is held by four players.

THAT'S ONE WAY TO GET A COUPLE SHOTS BACK (2:10 p.m.) -- John Merrick's day didn't start too well -- he bogeyed the first hole to fall back to 12 under, four shots behind Paul Goydos.

Merrick then holed his pitch shot on the short par-4 second hole from 62 yards out.

The eagle moves back to 14 under and in a tie for third with David Toms and Ben Curtis.

Curtis birdied his first two holes today.

THE LEADERS HIT THE COURSE; FOLLOW WITH SHOT TRACKER (2:01 p.m.) -- The final group of Paul Goydos and Kenny Perry are on the first hole at TPC River Highlands.

BUBBA STILL REELING OFF BIRDIES (1:39 p.m) -- With the leaders minutes away from teeing off, Bubba Watson has packed on two more birdies to get to 7 under for the day and 13 under for the week.

WatsonBubba actually had a good eagle try on the short par-5 13th -- he had 188 yards to the flag and stuffed his approach shot to 18 feet, but his putt slipped just by the cup.

BUBBA OFF TO HOT START (1:05 p.m.) -- One of the players making a move from the morning tee times is Bubba Watson, who lost ground with a third-round 70 that included 34 putts.

Watson has hit every green so far in the final round, and his five birdies have pushed him into a tie for ninth at 11 under.

Watson has quietly enjoyed a solid year in 2009.

He is 39th in FedExCup points and is in solid position to qualify for all four events of the PGA TOUR Playoffs for the FedExCup.

SOME QUIPS FROM GOYDOS (12:45 p.m.) -- Paul Goydos has about the best dry wit of anyone on earth.

Some of his gems this week at TPC River Highlands: GoydosOn playing against Kenny Perry and David Toms: "They have a lot of experience winning.

I have a lot of experience playing."On how easy the course has been playing this week: "If Kenny or David or anybody else goes out and shoots 59 or something, there's not a whole lot I can do about that except try to shoot 59 myself."On how he likes being in the last group: "You know, you're the last people to finish.

So you know where you finished right when you get done.

You don't have to worry about waiting around."On his foot slipping on the 14th hole on Saturday: "I actually had my foot slip on my tee shot.

I don't know if they got that on the TV or not, but I almost fell down."On TPC River Highlands: "I like these par 70 courses, let's start with that.

It's easier to shoot in the 60s."AND NOW, INFO ABOUT OUR FINAL GROUP TODAY (12:30 p.m.) -- The overnight leader, Paul Goydos, is one of the shortest hitters on TOUR.

Kenny Perry, the Kentuckian who has made a living for 20 years by hitting the ball right to left, is one of the longest hitters.

PerryGoydos has thrived on TOUR with his mid-iron and wedge ability.

Perry has overpowered courses with his driver while hoping his putter knocks in enough 10-footers to go low.

The two really couldn't be any different, but yet, very much the same.

Both are family men who share a quick wit.

Both saw their games disappear for awhile before recent successes.

Goydos' win at the Sony Open in 2007 was his first victory in nine years; Perry stunned the golf community last summer when he broke through with three victories in five starts.

Note we posted yesterday in this space: You might remember the last time Goydos and Perry played together in the final group.

It was a little over a year ago at the 2008 THE PLAYERS Championship -- the one that Goydos lost in a playoff to Sergio Garcia.

Perry shot an 81 that day and finished tied for 15th.
