HARTFORD, Conn., April 11, 2023 – Two-time major champion Collin Morikawa confirmed that he will play in the 2023 Travelers Championship. It will be the third tournament appearance for Morikawa, who is a five-time PGA TOUR winner and is No. 11 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

“We’re delighted to add another highly ranked and supremely talented golfer to our player field with Collin joining us,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “He has played here twice before, so we know the intensity he brings to every shot and the exciting moments he’s capable of at TPC River Highlands.”

Morikawa joins a star-studded player field that includes Scottie Scheffler (No. 2 in the OWGR), Rory McIlroy (No. 3), Patrick Cantlay (No. 4), defending champion Xander Schauffele (No. 6) and Justin Thomas (No. 12).

The first PGA TOUR win for Morikawa came in just his sixth start as a professional, at the Barracuda Championship in 2019. He won the PGA Championship the following year for his first major title, then captured The Open Championship in 2021 for his second. This season, Morikawa has three finishes on the PGA TOUR of sixth or better, including a second at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Morikawa represented the United States at the Walker Cup in 2017, the Olympics and the Ryder Cup in 2021, and the Presidents Cup last year. He went a combined 5-1-1 in helping the U.S. win back the Ryder Cup and retain the Presidents Cup.

“Collin’s talent was evident since his college days at Cal, which is why we gave him an exemption in 2019, and since that time, he’s had a tremendous start to his career,” said Andy Bessette, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Travelers. “I’m excited that our fans will have another opportunity to see him up close this year. Hosting the best golfers in the world is just one of the many reasons why fans will want to experience this world-class event.”
