TPC River Highlands played host to the Travelers Celebrity Pro-Am Wednesday.

With a score of 25, Zach Johnson’s team took first place amongst the front nine group. Johnson’s winning group included Chris Thornell, Bill Timmerman and Dan Pace. On the back nine, Padraig Harrington’s group won top honors with a 10-under par 25. Playing alongside Harrington was Richard Hylant, Mary Beth Hahn and Mike Horvath.
The celebrity field included singer/songwriters Michael Bolton and Eddie Money, actor Joe Pesci, ESPN’s Chris Berman, Karl Ravech and Kenny Mayne, WWE wrestler The Miz, UConn men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun and assistant coaches George Blaney and Kevin Ollie, along with associate head women’s basketball coach Chris Dailey, Boston Celtics guard Ray Allen, Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Doug Flutie, NFL Hall of Famer Andre Tippett, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, sportscaster Ahmad Rashad, in addition to Quinnipiac head men’s basketball coach Tom Moore and assistant Scott Burrell.
