The 2020 Travelers Championship is the third tournament played after the PGA Tour’s restart. Many famous Golfers participated in the Travelers Championship Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. Unlike the first two events, a couple of golf players pulled back before the event because of positive tests for COVID-19 to either themselves or those close to them. We have brought you the highlights of all over the rounds. The 69th edition of the Travelers Championship golf tournament held on June 25 to June 28, 2020. Let’s find out all the rounds in detail.
Round 1, June 25, 2020
Mackenzie Hughes birdied three of his last four holes to get to 10 under overall and went to the last realizing he would require a birdie there for 59. He had a 40-footer for the bird after a mediocre drive and somehow short it left. Really short, as well. It’s in every case great to shoot 60, however, it needed not to get that one even within the vicinity. The thing Hughes has got to worry a few bit that he led the field in putting on round 1, which is perhaps unsustainable.
Rory McIlroy was about field average with his putter and still sits in second place after the end of round 1. To wit, McIlroy had 13 birdie or eagle putts inside of 20 feet, and he made less than 70 feet of putts total.
Xander Schauffele hit 9 of 14 fairways and 15 of 18 greens in regulation, completing at 7 under for the tournament. By the end of round 1. Xander Schauffele and Viktor Hovland are both in third place at the leaderboard.
Round 2, June 26, 2020
Phil Mickelson turned in his best single-round score of the season to require sole possession of the lead at the 2020 Travelers Championship.
Mickelson backed up his round 1, 64 with a 7-under 63 on round 2 and leads the event after 36 holes of play at TPC River Highlands. Mickelson began with one bogey and three pars through the initial four holes. He turned things around during a significant way from that time on with eight birdies throughout the following 14 holes.
Will Gordon hit 9 of 14 fairways and 17 of 18 greens in regulation, finishing at 12 under for the tournament. Gordon finished his day tied for 2nd at 12 under with Mackenzie Hughes.
It wasn’t as sensational as his first round, but Mackenzie Hughes is more than satisfied with his score of 68 on round 2 at the Travelers Championship. He made four birdies, along with a couple of bogeys, and finds himself at 12 under. By the end of round 2, he was in third place at the leaderboard.
Round 3, June 27, 2020
Brendon Todd and Dustin Johnson got everyone’s attention during the third round of the 2020 Travelers Championship on Saturday. Todd, who started the day as a major part of a five-way tie for the fourth spot, took the inside and out lead with 18 holes remaining to shoot a 61 to bring down his three-round score to 18 under par.
Dustin Johnson shoots up abruptly at the leaderboard after completing the second round in the 20th.
Todd has been on point through 54 holes, with no single-round score above 66. His success stems in large part from his capacity to hit the fairway. Inputting the ball on the fairway for each hole in the third round, Todd hit 88.9 per cent of greens in regulation and increased 2.8 strokes putting.
Kevin Streelman hit 9 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens in regulation, finishing at 15 under for the tournament. He finished his round 3 in 3rd at 15 under.
Final Round, June 28, 2020
At the final round, 4th day at TPC River Highlands, close to a hundred people available in these strange pandemic days to witness what Johnson’s 21st PGA TOUR victory. Beginning two behind, Johnson made four birdies on the front, turned in 32 to overtake Todd, at that point apparently headed into victory with another birdie at the tenth.
This is often the Travelers Championship, where wildness consistently happens and it did so once more. Nothing unexpected that Johnson hit some turbulence coming home, he pulled his drive OB and bogeyed the par-5 13th and he hit a 3- hybrid almost into the water at the short, par-4 15, at that point needed to move up his pants and go in and hack his second shot go into play.
This is Johnson’s 21st PGA Tour title and his first in 16 months, since the WGC-Mexico last February. Following a second-place finish to Brooks Koepka last May at the PGA Championship, DJ fell into what was by all standard a long droop, recording only two top-10 finishes in 14 beginnings folded over arthroscopic knee medical procedure last September. Johnson received $1.332 million from an overall prize money payout of $7.4 million.
Kevin Streelman hit 9 of 14 fairways and 16 of 18 greens in regulation and finished the final round without a bogey. He finished his final day in 2nd at 18 under. Kevin Streelman received $806,600 prize money.
Will Gordon hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation during his final round at the Travelers Championship, finishing at 17 under for the tournament. He finished his final round tied for 3rd at 17 under with Mackenzie Hughes. Will Gordon got $436,600 whereas Hughes also received $436,600 prize money.
