Hunter Mahan shot an 8-under 62 yesterday to take the first-round lead in the Travelers Championship before rain suspended play with 39 golfers still on the course. The round was one stroke off the course record and it was his sixth consecutive round in the 60s at the TPC at River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. "It's one of the courses that you look at it and you feel comfortable," said Hunter, who finished second in last year's tournament. "There's not really a shot here that I worry about.

CROMWELL, Conn. - David Mathis had a hole-in-one and shot a 6-under 64 on Thursday to take a 1-stroke lead after the first round of the Travelers Championship. The 38-year-old Mathis, who missed the cut last week in the U.S. Open, began play on the back nine, making a birdie on 10 before holing out from 158 yards shot on the par-3 11th hole. He was 6 under after six holes. U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson and Masters winner Bubba Watson played together and finished in a group of 10 at 66. The third member of the threesome, PGA champion Keegan Bradley, shot a 68. Mathis' ace was the shot of the day. He said he was just trying to cut a 9-iron close to the pin and it hit exactly where he aimed, bounced right and into the hole.

CROMWELL, Conn. - Marc Leishman shot an 8-under 62 on Sunday in the Travelers Championship, then went back to the clubhouse to eat, watch some soccer, and see where he would finish.

Patrick Cantlay kept his cool while all those around him were losing theirs. Playing a mature game, well beyond his age, Cantlay walked off, his head held high, with a 1-under-par 69 at the AT&T National at Aronimink on Friday. He had held his own on a course that left Jim Furyk looking at his shoes and also chewed up and spit out the feel-good-story of the tourney, Erik Compton - the golfer who survived two heart transplants - who finished 12-over. Cantlay shot a bogey-free round on a tough course, as many veterans admitted they thought that the bogeys were inevitable.

It wasn't exactly the kind of homecoming West Chester's Sean O'Hair expected. This season has been mostly a struggle for him. But he's a member at Aronomink Golf Club, where he tied for 11th in last year's AT&T National despite playing with a sore back. At the moment, he'd probably take that. Assuming he makes the 36-hole cut. "It sucks," is how O'Hair summed up his opening 6-over-par 76 yesterday. He wouldn't get many arguments. He started early in the morning from the 10th hole, with 2008 champion Anthony Kim and Cameron Beckman.

Aronimink Golf Club poses a daunting challenge to golf's best players as one of the toughest courses on the PGA Tour in 2010. But it's easy for anyone to fall in love with the place, especially if he plays well. That's the way it is for Justin Rose and Ryan Moore, who finished 1-2 in last year's AT&T National. And it could be like that for any of the 118 other players who have returned to Newtown Square to compete there for the second and final time in the event, which begins Thursday.

The AT&T National at Aronimink still has to play out over the weekend, but PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem already has seen enough to think that the Philadelphia area deserves a chance to host a tour event on a more permanent basis. "We would definitely like to continue an involvement here in Philadelphia and we're actively looking for ways to do that," Finchem said Wednesday. "We have a full schedule right now, but there are some times we're moving tournaments around, doing things.
