Rules, perks draw top field to Travelers
CROMWELL, Conn. (AP) Some of the biggest names in golf are giving up what for many is normally a week off after a major championship to play at the Travelers Championship.
Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Bubba Watson are among those in Connecticut this week, giving the tournament an unusually strong field.
"I just haven't played the week after the U.S. Open, and thought, why don't I?" said Spieth, who along with McIlroy is playing at TPC River Highlands for the first time. "You play a U.S. Open and any course you play right after should seem a bit easier and should be fun because of that. Then what put me over the edge was other players' recommendations."
