Travelers Championship 2020 Preview
The course for the Travlers Championship, the TPC River Highlands, is a familiar one for many of this year’s participants. Round 1 of the tournament will take place Thursday, with Rounds 2-4 coming Friday through Sunday. There will be 156 participants, with a $7.4 million purse.
Bubba Watson is one of several golfers who will be driving more than big shots on the teeing grounds. Watson will be driving his own mobile home to the event, which will take place without any fans due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“It makes it weird, I guess,” Watson said about not having fans at the event, “because even when I made a couple putts, you just don’t even wave, you don’t even high-five. It’s just a weird feeling, which we all love trying to challenge ourselves under pressure in front of the fans, and not having that makes it a little weird. I’ll call myself an athlete, we know we’re playing for fans on TV, but man, it’s just the roars, the electricity. Even if you’re playing terrible, to hear other roars, it gets you excited, so that’s what we miss.”
Watson joins several of the world’s top players at the Travelers Championship, including No. 1 Rory McIroy, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Phil Mickelson and Sergio Garcia, all of whom will all be among those competing.
This week, the sport saw its first positive COVID-19 case when Nick Watney tested positive for the coronavirus. McIlroy doesn’t think it’s time to pull the plug on golf yet despite recent developments, however.
“We’re still in the middle of a pandemic,” McIlroy said recently. “I think we’ve done really well to start golf again and get back up and play golf tournaments. I don’t think anyone was blind to the fact that someone could catch the virus, and it’s a shame Nick did. But as I said, it’s one case. And as long as it’s contained to that and we move forward, we can keep playing.”
