“In all the years we’ve been fortunate enough to be title sponsor of this world-class tournament, we have never felt as grateful as we do right now,” said Alan Schnitzer, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Travelers. “For so many people to come together in the face of incredible challenges and help the Travelers Championship make such a difference for so many is nothing short of remarkable. We owe a great deal of thanks to the many tournament sponsors who pledged their support, the small but mighty corps of mission-critical volunteers who came out and the fans who made a difference from a distance. Congratulations to our 2020 Travelers Championship winner, Dustin Johnson. Against the best player field we’ve ever had, Dustin put on an impressive show. So did all those who had a hand in making sure this tournament was a tremendous success. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back next year.”
