The Traveler's Tournament Ended with a Flourish

A field of record proportions, with 7 of 12 top players in the world in attendance. Coming down to the last 4 holes the outcome was still to be determined as the leader by 2 strokes felt the stress and the field chasing him were trying to close the gap.

When it was all over, Marc Leishman from Melbourne Australia, with a round of 8 under par was declared the winner, with the Traveler’s trophy, and a check for $1,080,000.

17 hole


It was a perfect day for golf, some clouds just to break up the blue, a bit of wind just to make the golfers think a bit more, and a crowd of over 100,000 cheering all over the course to acknowledge the great shots the pros were making.

Webb Simpson


Webb Simpson, previously had committed to attend the tournament then won the US Open just the week before.

A man of integrity and character, he flew across country and honored his commitment to play in the tournament and held his own.


17 fairway


When the tournament, the holes around the pond on the back side, 15, 16, and 17 took their toll, and the winner was decided.






The real winners are the charities in the greater Hartford that will benefit from the tournament, and the Great Hartford Junior Chamber of Commerce and hundreds of volunteers, will have worked hard to make this day and tournament memorable.

Ed, I'm always amazed at the great charity the PGA gives to so many local areas.  I missed this (Sunday is my usual day for chilling out watching golf), but what little I was able to catch, just showed off your great Cromwell CT area.

The Traveler's Tournament Ended with a Flourish.  Good job Ed on keeping us posted. I normally keep an eye on such events but seems like I've been in the working mode more than the recreational as of late.  I agree you would make an excellent sports commentator!  Have a great week ahead my friend.

Sounds like it was a great match Ed. Do you know why they call it golf? All the other four letter words were taken!

Ed I did not get to watch as much of the Travelers Championship as I had hoped to, but it was an exciting finish depending on who you were routing for.
