Cink hangs on

Stewart Cink parred the final hole Sunday to win the Travelers Championship by 1 shot over defending champion Hunter Mahan and Tommy Armour III.
Cink bounced his final drive of the day off the cartpath and up on the hill. It went 366 yards. But he landed his second shot just off the back edge of the green. Cink lagged his 22-foot putt 2 feet short, then made the par.
This is Cink's fifth victory on the PGA Tour and second one here. He won during his rookie year in 1997.

play resumes at 1:58

Can we complete the final round today? We will see.

Delay in the action

there was a good crowd on hand for the final round of the Travelers Championship following around the final three groups, including leader Stewart Cink.

The final-round tee times were moved up today because of inclement weather, but they were not able to get the final round in before the horn blew at 12:57 p.m. There was a quick thunderstorm that passed through the Cromwell area. Cink, who leads Tommy Armour III and Heath Slocum by 1 shot, is on the 14th hole when play resumes...whenever that is.

Rain Delay

No sooner had I finished my blog entry stating that the rain may hold off for another hour or so than the horn sounded for a rain delay. It wasn't raining at the time of the delay, but it started about five minutes later and we're in the midst of a good thunderstorm right now.

Hopefully, it will pass through quickly. Otherwise, CBS's coverage of this event that begins at 3 p.m. may end up being live, and not on tape delay!

Tie at the Top

There's a tie atop the leaderboard, as Tommy Armour III and Stewart Cink are both at 16-under.

Meanwhile, Vijay Sing put his tee shot in the water at the par-5 13th and made bogey-6, drawing sarcastic groans of displeasure from some of the folks around me (Vijay isn't the most well-liked guy on tour).

Weatherwise, we're hearing there's rain in Hamden, even Kensington, but it's stayed away from Cromwell for the moment and hopefully will remain that way for about another hour. It is a bit windy on the course right now, however.
