"I've had a few missed cuts, so to come back and finish a solo second is nice, but to be that close and perform and be right there, I'm just a little disappointed right now, " Streelman said.

Two more bogeys and four more pars capped off a birdie-less 75, plummeting Todd to a nine-way tie for 11th, six back.

Mackenzie Hughes made over 90 feet of putts on his final two holes at the Travelers Championship to shoot a 3-under 67 and finish in a tie for 3rd.

"It was a long time between wins though", Johnson said.

"It seems like he's starting to play really well and make some putts and we're both kind of peaking this week at the same time, so hopefully we can both go low". (He ranked fourth in SG: putting for the tournament.) Johnson poured in a 27 foot-sidewinder at eight, a 9-footer at nine and drilled a 24-foot putt from off the green at 10 for his third straight birdie.

Just when Johnson looked like he might cruise to victory, he hooked his tee shot out of bounds at the par-5 13th and needed to make a clutch 7-foot putt for bogey. 17 and 18, and after Johnson safely parred the 17th, he made par on the 18th to seal the win. His third-place finish was just enough to earn him a special temporary card and unlimited exemptions for the rest of the season. Johnson had to take off his shoes and stood in the water to play his second shot at the par 4, but escaped with par.

Bryson DeChambeau shot a 68 to tie for sixth at 15-under.

Former world No 1 Johnson bagged his first tournament win since February 2019 after a closing three-under-par 67 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. "There's been some really good stuff in there, but then just some really stupid mistakes".

Phil Mickelson, playing his first tournament since turning 50, followed up his opening rounds of 64 and 63 with two 71s to finish at 11-under. Even today, like I got off to a good start and then bogeyed some easy holes. "My misses were much better".

Frittelli, who missed the cut at the Travelers Championship in CT, is the fourth golfer to test positive since the elite U.S. Tour resumed on June 11.

Cameron Champ and Denny McCarthy, who hit an opening round of 67, withdrew from the event following positive results, while Graeme McDowell and Brooks Koepka did not participate after their respective caddies returned positive tests.

"We're making several adjustments to our health and safety plan as noted in the memo sent to players this morning, and we will continuously reinforce to all players, caddies, staff members and support personnel on property at PGA Tour events to adhere to social distancing and other safety professionals that further minimize risk".

"As part of the PGA Tour's pre-charter testing process, Tour player Dylan Frittelli tested positive for COVID-19".
