The PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship—the closest major sporting event to my house!—announced early commitments to this year’s tournament scheduled for June 20-23 at TPC River Highlands, in Cromwell, Conn.
Bubba Watson, Hunter Mahan, Keegan Bradley and defending champion Marc Leishman (pictured) say they are playing this year, according to the tournament.
Watson, the defending Masters Champion, won his first PGA Tour event at River Highlands in 2010. He finished second last year.
Mahan was the 2007 Travelers champion.
Bradley, the 2011 PGA Championship winner and 2011 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, is local favorite haling from Vermont.
Tickets also go on sale today, and with the tournament only 97 days away, the Travelers Championship is offering a special ticket package for $97 that includes four Any One Day tickets, one Lot B Parking Pass and $30 in food and beverage vouchers, a savings of $99.
