CROMWELL —Bubba Watson shot a 67 to extend his lead to three strokes midway through the second round of the Travelers Championship.
Watson began the day with a two-stroke lead after an opening 62. He made three birdies Friday during a bogey-free round to enter weekend play at 11-under par. He says he was forced to play more conservatively because of the wind.
Scott Brown had six birdies and shot 29 on the back nine after shooting 38 on the front to finish with a 67. He is 8 under for the tournament.
Jason Gore also was three shots back after shooting a 68 Friday, including a 31 on his final nine holes.
