Travelers Championship Makes CT a Golf Destination

Three weeks from now the Travelers Championship will be officially underway.

Personally, I find that hard to believe because last year's event seems so ...recent. ~ But then, that's how everything seems once you've had a few too

Anyway, I was looking through my photos of the 2008 Travelers Championship and remembering what an awesome time I had. I was covering the event for "Red Tee Tales", my daily blog on The magazine ultimately fell victim to the economy and the changing media landscape, and is still missed by many. The Travelers Championship however, promises to be better than ever.

I'm a CT native and this is an opportunity for me show off my amazingly stellar state, and to urge anyone who's considering CT as a vacation destination to come. To that end, I took my old pics and threw together this video - a CT/Travelers Championship MashUp - with the assistance of Animoto.

OK. It's the first time I've used this wonderful web app, so the end result is a bit...disjointed, but you get the idea... right?

So come for the tournament and the top tier players, then stay a little longer to take in our coastal villages, cosmopolitan casinos, and gorgeous golf courses.

I'll be featuring some "CT - Must See" destinations over the next couple of weeks.
