Rory McIlroy is coming back to Connecticut to compete in the Travelers Championship this summer.
Travelers made the announcement Wednesday morning on Twitter.
During McIlroy’s his initial appearance at the Travelers Championship in 2017, McIlroy tied for 17th. He closed with a 64 at TPC River Highlands, his best score of the week.
“I made the comment after last year’s tournament that I would definitely be back, and I’m delighted that my 2018 schedule will allow me to do that,” McIlroy said in a statement. “I love everything about the Travelers Championship: the golf course, the positive impact it has on the community and the support we receive from the fans.”
McIlroy, who turned professional in 2007, has won 22 tournaments around the world.
“We loved having Rory play in last year’s Travelers Championship, and we’re so thankful and excited that he’s decided to come back,” Andy Bessette, executive vice president and chief administrative officer at Travelers, said in a statement. “Rory had so many wonderful things to say about his experience, especially when it came to the fans. I know they’ll be rooting for him to have another great week this June.”
The PGA Tour runs from June 18 to 24 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
