This weekend at the Travelers Championship and for all PGA TOUR events this year, CBS Sports’ PGA TOUR coverage will be fully available through live streaming. Visitors to CBSSports.com and PGATOUR.com will be directed to a co-branded video player to watch live streaming of Saturday’s and Sunday’s broadcasts. The live streaming also will be available on the CBS Sports app for the iPhone and iPad, as well as through the CBSSports.com mobile website (m.cbssports.com).

Last year, Leishman was six shots off the lead going into the final round before firing a bogey-free, 8-under 62, to match his career-best round and earn his first PGA TOUR victory. His final round was the second best comeback in the Travelers Championship history. Leishman aims to be the first player since Phil Mickelson in 2002 to successfully defend his Travelers Championship title. Leishman competes in a field which includes 14 major championship winners including Rose, Bradley, Watson, Angel Cabrera, Lucas Glover, Padraig Harrington, Webb Simpson, Zach Johnson, Mike Weir, Stewart Cink, Trevor Immleman, David Love III, Vijay Singh and Y.E.
