Travelers Championship - Great Golf & Much More


Only nine putts on the front nine? Kenny Perry impressed everyone with that little... accomplishment. The end result of Mr. Perry's efforts: a bogey-free 9-under 61... and a two-stroke lead... in round one of the 2009 Travelers Championship.

Here he is on the 18th about to finish his winning round. The round included nine birdies BTW. Bravo Kenneth, to say the least. And yes, Mr. Perry radiates friendliness and generosity.

The 18th at TPC River Highlands is a wonderful place to watch golf. A natural amphitheater, the hills on both sides of the green provide the perfect perspective.

In addition to compelling PGA competition, the Travelers Championship provides exciting entertainment options for everyone. The Fan Zone is stellar, with a rock climbing wall, mini-golf and a wine tasting tent. An awesome crew from YouTube is there making spontaneous videos with spectators and Buick has cars, games and contests.

Yesterday was Women's Day an entire day of activities that included a fashion show, golf clinic and much more.

Look for an additional posts on that...and other Traveler's tales... later today. For now, I've got to get back to the action on course. BTW my Tap-in Twin, Cat, will be back on the scene with me tomorrow to assist with the reporting. Makes it much more fun. Catch you later.
