The PGA Tour heads to TPC Highlands in Cromwell Connecticut for the Travelers Championship this week with another star-studded field.
After a poor performance in the first tournament back in the Charles Schwab event, Webb Simpson proved that he is one of the in-form golfers on the PGA Tour with a victory at the RBC Heritage Tournament.
Check out some of the highlights from the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town last week.
This event also sees Chez Reavie try and defend his title from last year in which he won on 17 Under Par. Chez made the cut last week, but finished with a final round of 5 Over Par to finish in last place.
The tournament has been held at the TPC River Highlands since 1984 and has seen some of the lowest scores in PGA Tour Histrory. Jim Furyk shot a 58 at the 2016 Event which is a PGA Tour Record. Jim Furyk is once again in the field this week, but did miss the cut at last weeks RBC Heritage Event.

Here are some Travelers Championship Golf Picks for the 2020 Event.
Current Odds – $29
It’s his first event since the break, but Casey has finished in the Top 10 in this event in four of the last five years. He plays well at the TPC River Highlands and has the game to be there at the back end of Sunday.
A long hitter and consistent ball striker, if his putter gets hot, he will be a real chance. No real form to go off recently, but the previous form on a specific course is usually a pretty good indicator.
Current Odds – $29
The Hot ball-striker on tour right now, Ancer led Driving Accuracy and Green in Regulation at the RBC Heritage last week. He finished second behind Webb Simpson and will want to capitalize on his excellent ball-striking this week. A top 10 finish in this event last year and if the putter gets going he’s going to be in the mix again.
Current Odds – $61
A Top 10 finisher in this tournament in the last two years, Harman is in some good form in recent weeks with two consecutive top 30 finishes.
Not the longest hitter on tour, but that doesn’t matter too match on a shorter golf course. His form has been excellent and that should continue in an event he is proven to play well in.
Current Odds – $301
If you like an outsider, then Chris Stroud might be it. In his first event back last week he finished in a tie for 28th on 13 Under Par.
Not the best form before the break, but it looks as though he has put some time into his game and improved in certain areas. Has played well on the PGA Tour before and could be a good long shot.
