Tournament: Travelers Championship
Date: June 19-22, 2014
Venue: TPC at River Highlands
Location: Cromwell, Connecticut

In the wake of the U.S. Open, the PGA Tour heads north to Connecticut for the Travelers Championship; which has been played at TPC River Highlands since 1991. The field will be rather diluted this week after the major championship with just seven of the top-25 players from the World Golf Rankings in the field; including four (Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jason Day, Sergio Garcia) of the top-10. Last season, virtual unknown Ken Duke took this tournament in a playoff, fending off Chris Stroud with a score of 12-under and winning with a birdie on the second playoff hole.

This tourney has also given spectators plenty of excitement over the past 10 years, with the winner taking home the trophy after a playoff in five of the seasons. This is yet another tournament that is wide open to some of the fresh faces on tour, so let’s take a look at a few players who have a solid chance this week at the par-70, 6,844-yard course.

Golfers to Watch

Bubba Watson (23/2): Watson was 10-under after two rounds at this tournament last season, but could not close as he posted a 70 in each weekend round while also winning here back in 2010. He has now played himself to the third spot in the World Golf Rankings and is second in the FedEx Cup standings with two victories and seven top-10 finishes this year. Watson currently ranks first on the PGA Tour in driving distance (313.2 yards per) and this will definitely help him score low on one of the shortest courses on the PGA schedule.

Keegan Bradley (22/1): Bradley has posted a score in the 60’s in six of his past eight rounds at this course and finished in a tie for 18th last year with a score of 5-under. He had a solid performance last week at the U.S. Open, finishing in fourth place as he went under par in three of the four days, and should use that to boost his confidence this week. Just like Watson, Bradley is a long-hitter (301.4 yards per, 19th on tour) and averages 4.0 birdies per round (9th on tour) which should put him in contention from day one.

Graham DeLaet (35/1): DeLaet started the season on fire with top-8 finishes in five of his first six tournaments played, but has placed in the single-digits just twice since (11 starts). He has continued to be a force though, and has hit the most greens in regulation (72.01%) so far this year. He scored 11-under at this tournament last year, finishing in third place, and has a good chance to earn his first career PGA Tour victory this weekend.

Brian Davis (100/1): Davis has always played well at this course, finishing in the top-10 both in 2011 (9th) and 2012 (4th). He is not having the best season, but is coming around at the right time with top-14 finishes in two of his past four tournaments played, and could rebound from a poor year here this week.

Robert Streb (130/1): Streb has been solid in his second season on the PGA Tour, making the cut in 11-of-12 tournaments; including a runner-up finish at the Zurich Classic earlier this year. He is 9-under overall this year on par-4’s (2nd on tour) and could use that to help him win his first career PGA Tournament this week in Connecticut.
