Keegan Bradley leads the Travelers Championship by one shot as Rickie Fowler scores 60.

After the third round of the Travelers Championship, Keegan Bradley took a one-shot lead after making three birdies in his final five holes.

After carding a flawless six-under-par 64, the 2011 PGA Championship winner leads fellow American Chez Reavie by one stroke.

Following a stellar round in which he narrowly missed joining the elite sub-60 club, Rickie Fowler is among those in pursuit.

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland is nine strokes behind following a disappointing 66.

Fowler, 34, showed last week that he was back in top form with a tie for fifth place at the US Open and a round of 62, the joint-lowest at a major.

He had a chip from the fringe on the final hole at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut to post a 59, but just missed being the 13th player in PGA Tour history to break 60.

Fowler said that he was “very aware” of the potential. “I had a nice start to the day with a couple of good pars, made the turn at five [under], and at seven under through 11, I knew it [59] was a legitimate shot,” the golfer remarked.

With six shots behind Bradley and a score of 15 under, Fowler is still in the running for the title. After shooting a seven-under 63, world number one Scottie Scheffler is 14 under par.
