2019 Travelers Championship: Spectator Information


 

The PGA Tour heads back to Connecticut for the Travelers Open, June 20-23, at the TPC River Highlands. As the golfing world recoups from last week’s dramatic U.S. Open, a strong field looks to improve their season. Leading the pack is defending champion Bubba Watson, now 1 win behind Billy Caspar’s haul of 4 Travelers Championship titles. Other contenders include U.S. Open runner up Brooks Koepka as well as English professional Tommy Fleetwood. Phil Mickelson is looking to put a disappointing display at Pebble Beach behind him as he tees off this weekend. The tournament is a favorite among fans and seldomn disappoints.

 

Tournament History

The tournament dates back to 1952 as the Insurance City Open, but was known for most of its history as the Greater Hartford Open. It is one of the best attended events on the PGA Tour with only the raucous Waste Management Phoenix Open having a higher average attendance. The Travelers Championship has remained at the TPC River Highlands since 1991, a course that tends to favor long-hitters. The event has seen many notable champions including 2-time winners Arnold Palmer and Phil Mickelson, as well as Sam Snead, Lee Trevino, Greg Norman and Jordan Spieth. The tournament was also the site of Jim Furyk’s final round 58, or -12, a first on the PGA Tour.
