PATRICK REED COMMITS TO 2021 TRAVELERS CHAMPIONSHIPadmin
HARTFORD, Conn., March 9, 2021 – The Travelers Championship today announced that nine-time PGA TOUR winner Patrick Reed has committed to play in the 2021 tournament. This will mark Reed’s 10th consecutive appearance at TPC River Highlands.
“From winning the Masters to playing on Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup teams, Patrick has amassed an impressive golf resume, and we’re pleased to see that he’s decided to be part of our field,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “He has been loyal to our event for the last decade, and it will be great to see him once again in Cromwell.”
Reed turned professional in 2011 after leading Augusta State University to back-to-back NCAA team championships. In 2012, he earned his way into six TOUR events, including the Travelers Championship, by successfully qualifying through Monday tournaments. He joined the TOUR a year later, winning for the first time at the Wyndham Championship in 2013.
Starting with that victory, Reed has at least one TOUR win in eight of nine years. That includes his first major championship – at the Masters in 2018.
Reed has been a mainstay in team play, representing the United States at the past three Ryder Cups and the past three Presidents Cups and winning 12 total matches. His best finish in nine appearances at the Travelers Championship is a tie for fifth in 2017. He is currently No. 8 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
“I’m excited because we’ve developed a really good relationship with Patrick over the years, and it’s tremendous to be adding another top-10 player to the field,” said Andy Bessette, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Travelers. “Patrick fits nicely into what the tournament strives for every year: bringing together the world’s best players to be successful and generate money for local charities.”
Reed joins defending champion Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau in the field for the 2021 Travelers Championship, which will be held June 21-27 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.
