CROMWELL, Conn. — Brian Harman has always looked up to Bubba Watson, who preceded him as a standout left-hander for the University of Georgia Bulldogs.

On Sunday, Watson will begin the day looking up the leaderboard at Harmon as the two begin play in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

Harman birdied the 18th hole for his second consecutive 5-under 65 and a one-stroke lead over Watson and Canadian Graham DeLaet on Saturday in the Travelers Championship.

Looking for his second PGA Tour victory, Harman had a bogey-free round to take a 14-under 196 total into the final round at TPC River Highlands.

Harman hit a 149-yard wedge to 4 feet on the par-4 18th. He sank the putt after Watson, who led by two strokes after the each of the first two rounds, missed a 17-footer.

“Bubba’s a lot of fun to play golf with,” Harman said. “He was a little before me at Georgia, so I always looked up to him, was always really proud of the way he was doing and we were always rooting for him at Georgia.”

This is the second 54-hole lead for Harmon, who won the 2014 John Deere Classic from the front on the final day.

CHAMPIONS TOUR: Bernhard Langer and Jeff Maggert shared the lead over a bunched field heading into the final round of the U.S. Senior Open in Sacramento, California.

Langer shot a 2-under 68, and Maggert had a 70 on Saturday.

They were at 5-under 205 for the championship at delightful Del Paso Country Club, where conditions cooled off after consecutive days above 100 degrees.

But the competition remained hot, with eight players within a shot of the lead. That includes Tom Watson, Kenny Perry and defending champion Colin Montgomerie.

The 65-year-old Watson, who was tied with Maggert and Peter Fowler through 36 holes, salvaged a 71 after a tough round . Perry shot a 64 to surge into contention, and Montgomerie had a 70.

EUROPEAN TOUR: English golfer James Morrison shot a 5-under 67 to claim a two-stroke lead in the third round of the BMW International Open in Munich as overnight leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello dropped six off the pace.

Morrison, who began the day one stroke behind Spain’s Cabrera-Bello, made six birdies and would be further ahead if not for a bogey on the final hole.

LPGA TOUR: Na Ye Choi matched her career low with an 8-under 63 to surge to the top of the leaderboard at 13 under in the NW Arkansas Championship in Rogers, Arkansas.

Choi, the South Korean player who won the season-opening Coates Golf Championship for her eighth LPGA Tour title, made a 45-foot eagle putt on the 18th hole for a back-nine 29.
