The Northeast’s One and Only PGA TOUR Stop Will Feature the World’s Best Players

HARTFORD, Conn., Feb. 6, 2024 – The 2024 Travelers Championship, scheduled for June 17-23, is one of the PGA TOUR’s prestigious Signature Events this year. It will feature one of the best, most exclusive player fields in golf where everyone will compete in all four rounds. The tournament at TPC River Highlands is expected to generate millions of dollars for local charities and once again is the only PGA TOUR event in the Northeast.

“This year marks another tremendous milestone for our tournament, and we couldn’t have become a PGA TOUR Signature Event without the commitment of our title sponsor, Travelers, and everyone in the community who supported us along the way – from our corporate partners to volunteers and charities,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “We’ve stayed focused on making our event better each year, and there are several new features in store for players and spectators alike. We’re looking forward to hosting the world’s best players over four incredible days of competition and putting on the best show our fans have ever seen in Connecticut.”

Players will be challenged by a TPC River Highlands course that has undergone competitive enhancements to select holes, with new tee boxes, narrower fairways and smaller greens. There will also be improvements to the onsite experience for fans with upgraded venues and new concession areas.

“From day one, we’ve pledged to make this a world-class event on the PGA TOUR so that our fans, volunteers, sponsors, and the community can have a memorable experience and be proud of the Travelers Championship,” said Andy Bessette, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Travelers. “The tournament has generated significant money for hundreds of charities and made a positive impact on all those who benefit from it.”

The field is expected to include between 70 and 80 players, with the PGA TOUR establishing eligibility criteria for Signature Events based on performance. Players qualify to participate in this year’s Travelers Championship if they meet any of the following benchmarks:
