For many in the Nutmeg State, the arrival of warmer weather is the first harbinger of a favorite yearly tradition. It's a tradition that begins with with dispatches from Hartford, on the forming field for Connecticut's premier sporting event, the Travelers Championship.
Today, top talents Matt Kuchar and Dustin Johnson announced their commitment to compete in Cromwell, joining earlier entrants, including Hunter Mahan, Brandt Snedeker, Bubba Watson and defending champion Ken Duke.
The announcement that Travelers had signed a ten-year title agreement with the PGA Tour... extending its sponsorship through 2024... came in late February, brightening up the dead of winter for legions of CT golfers and sports fans. The 2014 schedule of events looks stellar, with activities beginning in early May and continuing through tournament week which is June 16-22. There's a lot to look forward to as we slowly slip into Spring.
