Mon, 25 Jun 2012 12:49p.m.
New Zealand's Danny Lee failed to make the final round cut at the Travelers Championship as Australian Marc Leishman fired a final round eight-under-par 62 to clinch his first PGA Tour victory at the TPC River Highlands course in Connecticut today.
Lee's third round score of 73 saw him finish in a share of 82nd place with a total of 212, with rounds of 69, 70 and 73 and is projected to be 149th on the Fed Ex Cup Standings.
Leishman made a 14-under 266, a stroke in front of 2010 Travelers winner Bubba Watson and Charley Hoffman, who was 16-under before a double-bogey, bogey finish.
Roland Thatcher needed a birdie at the last to tie but hit his approach from the fairway into a greenside bunker and finished with a bogey.
Thatcher finished at 12-under and in a tie for fourth with Briton Brian Davis, South African Tim Clark and John Rollins.
Sweden's defending champion Fredrik Jacobson finished with a 68 to tie for eighth at 11-under.
