Jason Day has added his name to the growing list of top players to commit to play in the 2017 Travelers Championship.
The 10-time winner on the PGA Tour is currently the third-ranked player in the world.
“Jason has established himself as one of the best players and biggest draws in golf,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “We’re excited that our fans will be able to watch him again at TPC River Highlands. Our already strong tournament field just became even stronger.”
Day, 29, is from Australia. It will be his third appearance at the Travelers Championship. He first played in the tournament in Cromwell as a tour rookie in 2008, according to a news release.
He joins Rory McIlroy, the No. 2 ranked player in the world, who committed to the Travelers Championship in February.
Others who have also committed include Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas and Jim Furyk, who shot a record 58 on Sunday during last year's tournament.
