After three days of spectacular golf at the 2023 Travelers Championship, Keegan Bradley holds a one-shot lead over Chez Reavie going into the final day. While Bradley and Reavie are the two overwhelming favourites to win the tournament from here, there are still some big names in the pack underneath them that won’t have given up hope just yet.
Scottie Scheffler is currently in a tie for 7th on -14 alongside Justin Thomas while Rickie Fowler catapulted himself up to 4th thanks to a career-best round of 60 on Saturday. Ahead of what looks set to be a thrilling final day at TPC River Highlands, here are some betting tips and predictions that you might want to consider.
Latest Travelers Championship tips
Keegan Bradley to win the tournament – 4/5
After three days in Connecticut, Keegan Bradley leads the way after three rounds of superb golf. If it wasn’t for Chez Reavie somehow clinging on to his coattails, then Bradley would already have this tournament wrapped up. As things stand, however, the 37-year-old is going to need one more big performance on Sunday if he is to win his sixth PGA Tour event.
Considering Bradley’s form this week and the fact his only real competitor, providing he doesn’t produce a terrible performance on Sunday, is someone ranked outside the top 100 we believe he will have enough to get over the line. Bradley has performed well this season and the win will be a well-earned one after a couple of difficult years.
Scottie Scheffler to finish inside the top five – 6/5
After shooting a 63 on day one, Scottie Scheffler would have fancied his chances of going on to win the tournament. The world number one has already won two events this season and a third looked very much on the cards after his opening effort.
However, he slumped to an even-par round of 70 on day two which resulted in him being outside the top 20 at the halfway stage. Another 63 on Saturday moved him back up to 7th in the leaderboard and he very rarely has more than one bad round in a tournament. As a result, we expect another low score from Scheffler on Sunday and for him to keep his brilliant run of form going.
Adam Scott – Top rest of the world player – 11/8
Adam Scott is a hugely successful golfer with 14 career wins to his name on the PGA Tour, however, the Australian has found the game difficult in recent years. There have been signs in recent tournaments that Scott is starting to feel more comfortable with his game again and he has had a great week in Connecticut this week.
Scott is currently on -15 and his only competition for the prize of top rest of the world player is fellow Australian, Min Woo Lee. Lee is currently one shot behind Scott which will make for an interesting subplot on Sunday afternoon. Scott has played better than his compatriot this week, though, and but for some iffy putts, he would be up there with Bradley and Reavie.

Rory McIlroy to beat Hideki Matsuyama – 8/11
After coming up just short at the US Open last weekend, Rory McIlroy has performed well again at the Travelers Championship. Although he isn’t in contention to win going into the final day of the tournament, he will be confident of securing another top-ten finish.
On Sunday, he is playing alongside Hideki Matsuyama and he will fancy his chances of beating the 2020 Masters Champion. Matsuyama has had a difficult season this time around and only has two top-ten finishes to his name. McIlroy on the other hand is currently in the midst of some good form and we expect him to comfortably come out on top in this pairing.
Shane Lowry to beat Wyndham Clark – 11/10
After winning the US Open last weekend, Wyndham Clark can be proud of how he has applied himself this week. It is never easy to play in another tournament immediately after the high of winning a major but Clark has performed well and made the cut relatively comfortably.
On day four, he has been paired with Shane Lowry and the reality is, Clark will probably just be going through the motions so he can get home and properly celebrate last week’s triumph. We expect Lowry to come out on top with the Irishman needing a big performance if he is to threaten the top ten.
