A Quick Stop in Cromwell - The Travelers Championship

TPC River Highlands. I got up to Cromwell too late to catch much of the ProAm yesterday, but did get to watch some of the players on the practice green. Check out my rather shallow observations and photos over on Red Tee Tales.

Everyone... and I mean everyone... was talking about the Tiger news. Players discussed it between practice putts, journalists rehashed and wrote about it in the media center and fans The Tiger aura, especially in light of "the announcement", overshadowed the tournament like the dramatic and foreboding rain clouds that rolled in at about 4:00. Then there was the torrential downpour... and the eventual clearing. CT weather at its most typical. This morning is beautiful.

I won't get up to Cromwell today, but I'll be there tomorrow, and I'm really looking forward to it, because you know what? Tiger Woods is star of epic proportions, one we love to watch, but it's also really nice to watch players that aren't Tiger. And His temporary absence might just give some of these other players the opportunity to shine in a way, lets face it, they just can't when He's in the field.
