Cromwell, CT (Sports Network) - David Mathis carded a 6-under 64 on Thursday
to take the lead over three players after the first round of the Travelers
Championship, though a number of big names aren't far off his pace.
Defending champion Fredrik Jacobson fired a 5-under 65 and shares second place
with Nathan Green and Will Claxton.
Behind the second-place trio is a group of 10 knotted for fifth at minus-4.
Among them are Webb Simpson, last week's U.S. Open winner, and Masters
champion Bubba Watson.
They're all in pursuit of Mathis, who is chasing his first PGA Tour title. A
two-time winner on the Nationwide Tour, Mathis has missed the cut 12 times
this season, though does have a top-10 finish.
