    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.

Woods reached out to good friend Jason Day after the Australian sputtered to an opening-round 79 last Thursday, asking Day to call him so they could analyze what went wrong in Day’s game before Friday’s second round. Woods’ phone never rang, and Day didn’t make it past Friday after shooting a second-round 75. “He texted me after I shot 79 and said, ‘Hey, before you work on something call me because I saw something,'” Day, the world No. 4, told the Golf Channel this week at the Travelers Championship. “I was like, ‘Yeah, you saw 79 shots.’ I didn’t call him because I was so angry.”
