First came to the Travelers Championship roughly 25 years ago and have covered it for nearly a decade. Have never seen crowds like this, especially following Jordan Spieth's group for the front nine of Round 3 on Saturday. If the PGA Tour was debating if their rule about having pros play different tournaments was a good one, this photo speaks volumes.

World No. 3 Rory McIlroy nearly missed the cut Friday at the Travelers Championship and spoke about the challenges ahead ... before he knew if he'd be playing 36 more holes at TPC River Highlands. (He is.)

Rory McIlroy was on the cut line Friday afternoon at the Travelers Championship, his ball resting in the fairway just 105 yards from the final hole. He took out a wedge, aimed at his target -- and hit it 63 yards into the right rough. "My right foot completely came out from under me," he later explained. "It was weird. As soon as I started down, I just felt it and I couldn't stop. ... Not a very nice shot to finish with." He bogeyed the hole, but in his first career start at this event, quickly received a reprieve. As he moved down on the leaderboard, the cut line moved with him. McIlroy will enter the weekend eight strokes behind leader Jordan Spieth, but did avoid missing a second consecutive PGA Tour cut for the first time in five years.

India's Anirban Lahiri improved by 10 shots (73 to 63) from Round 1 to Round 2 at the Travelers Championship on Friday. His 63 is his lowest in his PGA Tour career. Lahiri is coming off a T-2 finish in his most recent start at Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament earlier this month.

Jordan Spieth's 69 on Friday didn't match his 63 from Round 1, but the two-time major winner still walked off the course with the lead at the Travelers Championship.

Two-time major winner Jordan Spieth doesn't expect to shoot 63 all four rounds at the Travelers Championship, but it's a good start.

Zach Zaback might be playing the ultimate in PGA Tour home games. The 23-year-old who has status on PGA Tour Latino America and went to UConn actually has a family home here at TPC River Highlands. Was he intimidated playing in a field win Rory McIlroy and Jason Day?

Who's idea was the Phil Mickelson and Jim "Bones" Mackay split? The answers will be in the actions they take next.

Same with comparing Isaac with Greek Freak. Anteokoumpo came into league at 6-9/7-3 wingspan and huge hands.
