Bubba'c course but he is struggling and apparently they have made some fairly significant changes to the layout since last year. Think Grace is a great price once again, am on. Also with Knox and Streelman.

The 2017 Travelers is back in its usual post-US Open slot - following last year’s Olympic shuffle, where scheduling ramifications were to blame. All the Majors were in the books last August and many players who are on the bubble for a Ryder Cup spot, whereas the may have skipped it if it were the week after the US Open.


Stat to watch - 3 of the 6 winners before Knox in 2016 did not play the US Open a week earlier, while 6 of the past 11 Travelers winners have made it their first win on TOUR, including four-in-a-row from Bubba in 2010, Freddie Jacobson 2011, Leishman in 2012 to Ken Duke in 2013. (Only Phil Mickelson has managed to win this event back-to-back in 2001-02). 47 players who teed it up at Erin Hills are all set for River Highlands.

Two time winner BUBBA WATSON only 36 holes last week so it's "IN THE HOLE BUBBA" again this week !

Top ranking players that did NOT play last week include Anirban Lahiri, Tony Finau, Jim Herman, Luke Donald (7th in 2015), Hudson Swafford, Sung Kang, Kyle Stanley, Danny Lee, Mackenzie Hughes, Billy Hurley, Kevin Streelman (2014 winner), Graham Delaet (4th 2015/3rd 2013), Chad Campbell (7th & 5th here before), Patrick Rodgers (3rd in 2016) and Padraig Harrington is back in action.

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW....for this 66th year

http://travelerschampionship.com/tournament-history/

Course opened in 1928 and has been the venue for the Travelers Championship since 1984. Formerly known as the Greater Hartford Open and then the Buick Championship 2004 to 2006, the course was redesigned by Pete Dye in 1982 with a further upgrade being done by Howard Twitty and Roger Malthie in 1989. Another Par 70 this week (6,841 yards) which is usually one of the easiest on TOUR. The most notable stretch is Nos. 15-17 which play around a four-acre lake. The 16th Hole is a very tough Par 3, while the 420yd 17th Hole, ranks among the toughest holes on the Tour.

Of the top 3 OWGR only JASON DAY has played here before, when 18th in 2014 & 27th way back in 2008. THOMAS was 3rd last year while CASEY was 2nd the year before.

In typical Travelers fashion Kevin Streelman STOLE the 2014 Championship !

By that of course we mean, Kevin and others have proven over the last 12 years, that a big charge on Sunday is possible as he was four back after 54 (and five back after 63 and tied for 20th). No one saw KEVIN coming down the STREETman as he played flawless golf on the back nine Sunday shooting a seven-under par 28 for a final round 64. Twenty four players were within (or at) 6 of lead starting that Sunday as Kevin finished his round with seven consecutive birdies to win the tournament, breaking a PGA TOUR record that dates back to 1956.

Faxon trailed by seven shots before winning in 2005 (shooting 61 on Sunday), Bubba trailed by six-strokes in 2010 before winning on the 2nd play-off par-3 16th hole, and the fifth 'International' winner Marc Leishman was down by six in 2012 - the biggest comebacks - so watch-out on Sunday morning for anyone inside the T10 (or 'bout 6 shots back).


Heck, maybe even wait ‘till Sunday to have your biggest bet.

Si-Woo KIM is OUT - withdrew from the Travelers - Kim was perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2015-16 season. He started the season well, like many rookies seem to do, but unlike most rookies, he got hot in the middle of summer. A crushing loss in a playoff at the Barbasol Championship didn't deter Kim at all as he picked-up his first PGA Tour win just a month later at the Wyndham Championship. The jury is still out on Kim, it's way too early to tell if he's for real or just a two-month aberration. Kim finished -6 for 13th last week in Erin Hills.

Hi Catch, I have been looking at the 'lovely' Par 3's on this course and that is where our paths have diverged,...I was trying to find a 'Jerry Kelly' stat that made him so good here. Snedeker is my pick from all my ruminations re these Par 3's but I do not think that there is wild value about on him. Might use him later....Oosty is good on the 'small ones' too and so is Henley but he ran into a lawnmower Sunday evening and he might be a little 'bruised'. Keep thinking.Confused

Last year, the PGA Tour instituted a rule which states that players who don't play a minimum of 25 tournaments each season must compete in at least one event that they haven't played during the previous four seasons.

"It's a feel-good event," McIlroy said. "If you want to play a round of golf, there is no better place to come than here where you can make birdies. The US Open can zap your confidence a little bit, as well. So it's nice to come back to a venue where you can see shots going close to the hole, you can see putts going in, you can make birdies. Sometimes you need that." This week's event will feature its most world ranking points, a formula based on field strength, in the past decade.
