2022 Travelers Championship Betting Preview

2022 Travelers Championship Betting Preview

After a scintillating U.S. Open with Matthew Fitzpatrick winning his first major—and first-ever PGA event—the Tour heads back to familiar territory for the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands. One of the most favored tournaments by players and caddies, the event attracts a strong field each year. Its huge crowds makes it the second-most attended Tour event behind only the Waste Management Open.

TPC River Highlands is a classical par-70 Pete Dye design where shot-shaping is almost required and where players are encouraged to get creative and utilize every club in their bag. It is a tree-lined parkland course with lush wide fairways and plenty of subtle changes in direction. The average winning score over the past 12 events has been 15-under par and has favored players who get hot with their putter and have a sharp short iron and wedge game.

Thanks to its tremendous finishing stretch of holes, it also almost always seems to deliver a climactic ending. Fourteen of the past 18 events have been decided by one shot or less with five of the past 11 finishing in a playoff. Many fans can still remember last year’s marathon Sunday that saw Harris English outlast Kramer Hickok after eight playoff holes.

The Field

Plenty of stars show up to play this event on an annual basis, and this year is no different. Six of the world’s top-10 ranked players are scheduled to tee it up in Connecticut, led by top-ranked Scottie Scheffler. Joining him is a strong group of favorites including Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, Sam Burns, Will Zalatoris, and Xander Schauffele. Finally healthy after missing a couple of months with an injury, Harris English returns to defend his title. After a higher cut-line last week at the U.S. Open, it returns to the usual top-65 and ties this week.
