    Bubba Watson, the two-time Masters champion, will be back in Connecticut this summer to play the Travelers Championship

    He has committed to play in the Cromwell tournament for the 10th time in his PGA Tour career. 

    “Bubba is a fan favorite and seems to be in contention to win here every year,” Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube said in a statement. “Not only that, but off the course he has always taken a personal interest in things that are important to the tournament, whether it’s visiting The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp or supporting our charitable initiatives.” 

    Watson’s first of 10 PGA Tour victories was at the 2010 Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands and he won again in 2015. 

    Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy have also committed to play in the 2018 Travelers Championship, which will be held June 18 to 24 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
