TPC River Highlands, Remodeled by Bobby Weed Golf Design, Attracts Strong Field for '17 Travelers
For a thrilling and dramatic victory at this year’s Travelers Championship in front of record crowds, Jordan Spieth blasted out of the bunker on the par-4 18th hole, the first hole of a sudden-death playoff against Daniel Berger, marking Spieth’s 10th PGA Tour win.
Operated by the PGA Tour, the 18-hole par-70 TPC River Highlands has been the venue for the tour’s annual Travelers Championship, previously known as the Buick Championship and the Greater Hartford Open, since 1984.
Some of the other notable names in this year’s 156-player field at the Travelers Championship included Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy and Jim Furyk, among others. The defending champion was Russell Knox.
