I am away again for the next two weeks so the betting guides will not be as comprehensive as normal, but here is a brief description of the course and my each-way and to win picks. As always good luck.
After last weeks heroics at the Olympic Club the tour moves on to Cromwell, Connecticut for the Travelers Championship which is being held at the TPC River Highlands.
River Highlands is a bit of a chameleon, the course opened in 1928 under the name of Middletown Golf Club, which later became known as the Edgewood Country Club. In 1982 Pete Dye completely redesigned the 6,841 yard track and finally in 1989 it went through another renovation this time undertaken by Bobby Weed with input from PGA Tour players Howard Twitty and Roger Maltbie.
The course weaves its way through mature maple, oak, eastern white pine and sycamore trees, which help to frame the gently rolling fairways. There are numerous lakes, ponds and over 100 bunkers. The tough finishing stretch of holes from the 15th – 17th play around a four-acre lake – just to make things a bit more interesting!
