Travelers Championship 2018
t might be a little much to ask Koepka to contend after expelling all his energy last week to win the U.S. Open, but he’s proven he can beat the odds.
McIlroy, Day, Spieth and Justin Thomas will help bring in galleries, but none of them have been in top form this month. Day, McIlroy and Thomas all at least have wins on Tour this season, while Spieth has not finished inside the top 2.
If golf fans were expecting a quiet week on the PGA Tour following the craziness that was the U.S. Open, that won’t be the case this week, as some of the worlds best make the short trek from Shinnecock to TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., site of the Travelers Championship since 1991. The event has become one of the most underrated stops on tour in recent years thanks to the course’s exciting final four-hole stretch that has produced some wild finishes.
Perhaps the tournament’s best finish came in 2017 when Jordan Spieth holed a bunker shot on the first playoff hole to defeat Daniel Berger and send the New England crowd into a frenzy around the 18th green. The shot capped off an eventful final round for Spieth, earning him his 10th career PGA Tour victory. Spieth went on to win an even wilder Open Championship just a month later but has not won since.
He’ll have a tough time defending is title this year, not only because of his 2018 putting struggles but because the Travelers boasts by far the strongest field the tournament has ever had. Nine of the world’s top 20 players are set to tee it up, including Justin Thomas, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy and Brooks Koepka, fresh off his second straight U.S. Open victory.
Marc Leishman seemingly always flies under the radar, but the Australian is ranked 16th in the world and has four top-9 finishes this season.
Jamie Lovemark and Kyle Stanley are long hitters who could take advantage of this course if their wedge games are in form.
