Security Policy 

Due to recent events and heightened security across our nation, the PGA TOUR and the Travelers Championship have updated our Security Policy to include mandatory screening of all patrons, sponsors, volunteers, media and vendors attending or working the event.

Officials are asking everyone to participate in making the event safe and enjoyable by being aware of their surroundings during their visit to a PGA TOUR event.  Should a person see an activity that might be unusual or suspicious, they’re urged to notify a security personnel or Tournament Official working the event.
