Pavin also shot a 64 last Sunday to conclude the Travelers Championship in a tie for 10th place, one of the five top-15 finishes he has had this year. The most recent of Pavin's 15 tour victories came two years ago.
"I just made some really nice mid-range putts today and one kind of bomb," Pavin said. "But I was in position and hit most of the fairways. So it was a good, good day."
Two-time U.S. Open winner Lee Janzen was among those at 67 and Jim Furyk was in a group at 68. Rocco Mediate, making his first appearance since falling to Tiger Woods in an epic U.S. Open playoff, shot 71.
