    Celebrating the differences of Spieth, Weekley at Travelers

    CROMWELL, Conn. -- One of the players in Sunday's final pairing at the Travelers Championship is among the most recognizable faces in the game today. The other looks like he just fell off a fishing boat. One of them is seeking his 10th career victory before the age of 24, a mark only preceded by a single player -- Tiger Woods. The other is 43 and seeking his first top-25 finish of this season. One of them is nicknamed Golden Boy. The other is a good ol' boy.
