England's Paul Casey matched his career-best round with an eight-under-par 62 to open a four-stroke lead after three rounds of the Travelers Championship in Connecticut.

Casey, 40, carded an eagle on the 273-yard par-four 15th to add to six birdies as he moved to 16 under.

Russell Henley is second after a three-under 67, with JB Holmes, Brian Harman and Anirban Lahiri a shot further back.

Rory McIlroy is eight shots adrift of the lead after a second successive 69.

Like Casey, the Northern Irishman also eagled the 15th, but a bogey at the last - his third of the day - left him well adrift.

Casey finished second on his first visit to TPC River Highlands in 2015, and has not been lower than 17th.

He said: "I love this golf course. I did everything I wanted to do. I can't do any more than that."
