JR Golfers to Play with Pros at Travelers Championship


Big-hitting little ones have a chance to win the round of their (short) lives at the upcoming Travelers Championship. The iconic Connecticut tournament will add a pro-am for kids this year. It'll take place on June 23 and will give a group of junior golfers a chance to play 9 holes with the PGA pros.

For a chance to win, kids between 10 and 18 have to submit a letter to the tournament director that explains why they should be selected. Kind of like the way PGA pros request exemptions into the actual tournament, which will be held in Cromwell at the TPC River Highlands course.

The pro-am is open to both boys and girls. Those selected will challenge the PGA Tour pros.

Next year I'm hoping they open the contest up to a couple of high handicap adults. Um...not that that would apply to me or anything.
