Bet the Travelers Championship, Win $200 (No Matter What!)

Golf's elite won't have to travel far this week, going from Brookline, Mass., to Cromwell, Conn., for the 2022 Travelers Championship.

Four of the world's top-six players will be in the field at the Travelers this week: No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, No. 2 Rory McIlroy, No. 5 Justin Thomas and No. 6 Patrick Cantlay. Also playing will be former Travelers Championship winner Jordan Spieth.

The Travelers falls in a sweet spot on the PGA TOUR calendar, and it's also quite geographically convenient for players this week coming off the U.S. Open. This will be the TOUR's last major stateside stop before the Open Championship. Next week, the TOUR will be in Iowa for the John Deere Classic, but most of the elite players will take the week off before heading across the pond for the Scottish Open in an effort to get used to links golf before the final major of 2022.

McIlroy, Scheffler and Thomas are atop opening odds this week, followed by Cantlay and Zalatoris. The order of the trio varies from sportsbook to sportsbook.

McIlroy has the most recent win of the three and is in the best form of any player on the planet right now. Here are his last six finishes:

  1. Masters: 2nd
  2. Wells Fargo Championship: 5th
  3. PGA Championship: 8th
  4. Memorial: T18
  5. RBC Canadian Open: 1st
  6. U.S. Open: T5

Scheffler has gone T2-T18-2 in his last three starts, although he hasn’t won since the Masters. He’s in the midst of a historic PGA TOUR campaign, with four wins in four elite events: Waste Management Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational: WGC Match Play and the Masters.

Thomas is coming off what he’ll consider a disappointing T37 at the U.S. Open, although he did finish in the top five in three of his previous four starts before the week in Brookline. He enters the week fourth in the FedEx Cup standings behind Scheffler, Sam Burns (also in the field this week) and McIlroy.

Burns has won three times this season, twice in 2022. All of those victories have come on courses that are of the shorter variety on the PGA TOUR, and they don't get much shorter than TPC River Highlands.

Course Preview

TPC River Highlands is one of the shortest courses players will see this season on the PGA TOUR. It’s a par-70 that measures less than 6,900 yards.

While the course is on the shorter side, we have seen a few big hitters thrive on it. Bubba Watson has three wins and a runner-up finish at the Travelers Championship, while Dustin Johnson won the tournament back in 2020. The length of the course opens it up to all players, but sometimes extra distance helps.

Still, approach play will be the most important stat this week in Connecticut. Expect the players who are able to thrive on their second shots to be toward the top of the leaderboard.

Past Champions

Last year, Harris English won a lengthy playoff against Kramer Hickok to claim his second win of the PGA TOUR season. Prior to that, Johnson bested Kevin Streelman by one stroke.

Watson’s three wins came in 2010, ’15 and ’18. In those last two wins, Paul Casey finished runner-up, losing to the big-hitting lefty in a playoff back in 2015.

Jordan Spieth famously won here back in 2017, holing out from the bunker in a playoff against Daniel Berger for the victory.

Chez Reavie, Russell Knox, Streelman and Marc Leishman are in the field this week and have also won the Travelers before.

Something of note: Four of the last nine Travelers Championships have finished with a playoff.
