HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 28, 2022 – The Travelers Championship today announced that 14-time PGA TOUR winner Justin Thomas has committed to play in the 2022 tournament. Thomas is No. 7 in the Official World Golf Ranking and will be making his eighth appearance at TPC River Highlands.
“Justin has been a big part of this tournament since his first visit in 2013, and we appreciate his continued support,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “He had a great year last year, and was a vital part of helping the U.S. team capture the Ryder Cup – we’re excited to see what he will do against some tough competition at TPC River Highlands.”
Thomas is the most recent winner of THE PLAYERS Championship, and has recorded TOUR victories in each of the past six seasons. That includes 2017, when he was named the TOUR’s Player of the Year, captured the FedExCup points title and won five tournaments, including the PGA Championship for his first major title.
He made his Travelers Championship debut as an amateur after receiving a sponsor exemption; his best finish at TPC River Highlands was a tie for third in 2016. He has been a member of the past two United States Ryder Cup teams and the past two Presidents Cup teams. Thomas also competed in the 2020 Olympics.
Thomas’s best finish this season is third place at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.
“We are so excited to have Justin playing in our field once again,” said Andy Bessette, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Travelers. “Justin has been such a tremendous supporter of our event and he always tells me how much he loves playing in front of our fans, which are some of the greatest in golf. We’re all looking forward to having Justin with us in June.”
Thomas joins Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson in the field for the 2022 Travelers Championship, which will be held June 20-26 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.
