TPC River Highlands, Remodeled by Bobby Weed Golf Design, Attracts First-Rate Field for 2018 Travelers Championship
Defending champion Jordan Spieth, whose dramatic victory over Daniel Berger last year came on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff, is joined by a top-tier list of players, including Brooks Koepka, winner of the 2017 and 2018 U.S. Opens, and Patrick Reed, this year’s Masters champion.
Some of the other notable names in this year’s field at the Travelers Championship include Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson, Patrick Cantlay and FedEx Cup titleholder Justin Thomas.
TPC River Highlands, marking its 35th year as a PGA Tour venue, welcomes 50 players who competed at last week’s U.S. Open.
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.
