Charley Hoffman missed the course record by a stroke, but shot a 61 Thursday to take the first-round lead at the Travelers Championship. The round comes a year after the 36-year-old Californian blew a two-stroke advantage on the tournament's final two holes. In his latest round, Hoffman hit a 126-yard approach shot within 3 feet of the pin to help him birdie 18 and separate himself by a stroke from Hunter Mahan, who also flirted with 59 earlier in the day. Bubba Watson was two strokes back after shooting a 63. Six golfers had shot 5-under 65s by late afternoon. Justin Rose shot a 67 and says he soaked in the moment on the first tee when he was introduced as the U.S. Open champion.
