HARTFORD, Conn., May 27, 2014 – Young, established and veteran stars continue to commit to the Travelers Championship’s most competitive field to date as Sergio Garcia, Graham DeLaet, Ryan Moore, Retief Goosen, Stewart Cink, and Angel Cabrera have committed to play TPC River Highlands from June 16 to 22.
“This is a very exciting announcement for us, as it features star players from across the globe, major winners, and a former champion,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “Sergio, Graham, Ryan, Retief, Stewart and Angel are all major names on the PGA TOUR. Our 2014 field features many of the best players in the world and continues to get stronger by the day.”
Sergio Garcia is one of the game’s elite players, evidenced by his No. 8 ranking in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) and No. 30 ranking in the 2014 FedExCupRankings. In his 15-year career, he has earned eight PGA TOUR victories, nine second-place finishes, 80 top-10 finishes, and nearly $35 million in TOUR earnings. Garcia is known for his consistency, and in the last two years he has missed just one cut in 25 events. This season, he has five top-10 and seven top-25 finishes in just eight tournaments. This will be Garcia’s third appearance at the Travelers Championship.
Graham DeLaet has proven to be one of the TOUR’s next big stars and is currently ranked No. 17 in the FedExCup Rankings and No. 32 in the OWGR. DeLaet, who will be making his fifth straight appearance at TPC River Highlands, experienced success at the tournament last year, finishing in third place behind Ken Duke and Chris Stroud. He has been near the top of leaderboards for the last two seasons on TOUR, and this year he has already garnered two second-place and six top-10 finishes. In his short career, he has earned 19 top-10, 33 top-25 finishes, and nearly $7 million in TOUR earnings. He has also shown a passion for charity off the golf course, donating $9,000 to Alberta flood relief in 2013, which was linked to his performance at the Travelers Championship. (He pledged $1,000 for each birdie he made.)
Ryan Moore is having another productive season, ranking No. 16 in the FedExCup and No. 40 in the OWGR. Moore has played TPC River Highlands every year since 2006 and owns five top-13 finishes in his career at the course, including a tied for second place finish in 2006. Since turning professional in 2005, Moore has had a successful career, earning three TOUR victories, six second-place finishes, 42 top-10 finishes, and nearly $18 million in TOUR earnings. This year, Moore already owns a victory at the CIMB Classic, four top-10, and eight top-25 finishes.
Two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen has been one of golf’s top international players for years. The South African has seven TOUR victories, seven second-place, 65 top-10 and 117 top-25 finishes in his 20-plus-year career, netting him more than $28 million in TOUR earnings. The 2001 European Tour Player of the Year has had even more success internationally, winning 14 times on the European Tour and four times on the Asian Tour. He saves his best golf for majors, earning 16 career top-10 finishes in major tournaments, including victories at the U.S. Open in 2001 and 2004. Goosen – who is ranked No. 100 in the FedExCup Rankings – will be making his second appearance at the Travelers Championship.
Stewart Cink, who won the Travelers Championship in 1997 and 2008, has become a staple at TPC River Highlands, where he ranks No. 4 in all-time tournament earnings at $1.9 million. Cink, best known for winning The Open Championship in 2009, has six career TOUR victories, 10 second-place, 91 top-10 and an impressive 210 top-25 finishes, which has earned him more than $32 million. Cink has made the cut in 12 of 15 events this year and owns four top-25 finishes, including a tie for 14th at the Masters. This will be Cink’s 15th appearance at TPC River Highlands.
Two-time major winner Angel Cabrera is known to raise his game in major tournaments, especially the Masters. Since 2001, he has six top-10 finishes at Augusta National, including a victory in 2009 and a second place finish in 2013. He also won the U.S. Open in 2007. The Argentinian also owns five victories on the European Tour and 28 victories on the Argentine Tour. In his career on the PGA TOUR, he has 24 top-10 finishes, 70 top-25 finishes, and nearly $12 million in earnings. Cabrera – ranked No. 102 in the OWGR – will make his third straight appearance at TPC River Highlands, where he finished in the top 10 last year thanks to a final round 7-under-par 63.
Garcia, DeLaet, Moore, Goosen, Cink, and Cabrera join one of the most competitive and deepest fields in Travelers Championship history. Two-time Masters winner Bubba Watson, Jason Day, Matt Kuchar, Keegan Bradley, Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedeker, Zach Johnson, Hunter Mahan, Patrick Reed, Jonas Blixt, Marc Leishman, Brendon Todd, Louis Oosthuizen and reigning champion Ken Duke have already committed to play the tournament from June 16 to 22 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn.
