2021 Travelers Championship: Strong Field Lines Up At TPC River Highlands
There’s no rest for the sport’s elite, with many of the world’s best players travelling to Connecticut for the Travelers Championship just hours after a gruelling US Open at Torrey Pines. Now the winner of that tournament, Jon Rahm, is having a well-earned break, but this week’s tournament certainly doesn’t lack for star power.
Already confirmed for this week are the likes of Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and world number one Dustin Johnson. DJ is the defending champion this week and will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing final round at the US Open. It wasn’t quite as disappointing as DeChambeau’s however. Bryson held a one shot lead at the halfway stage on Sunday only to falter down to T26th on the Leaderboard after a dismal back 9. His rival Brooks Koepka enters this week feeling a bit more positive. Koepka made a Sunday charge to finish in 4th place and only solidified his incredible major record. But can he energize himself for a standard PGA Tour event this week, that’s the question.

He may well be the World Number One, but Dustin Johnson is not the number one in the Travelers Championship odds lists. +1300 is the best line around on the defending Travelers Championship winner and that's sure to be popular with some bettors after a slightly better showing from Johnson in the last two weeks.
2021 Travelers Championship: Course Breakdown
Course: TPC River Highlands
Date: June 24 - 27
Designer: Pete Dye
For players heading from Torrey Pines to TPC River Highlands this week, there couldn’t be much of a bigger difference in course styles. From the heavy lifting required at Torrey, players this week will need to find fairways at a premium if they’re to contend in the Northeast. With just two par 5’s on the course this week, the bombers won’t be at quite such a big advantage as they were at the US Open, but that didn’t stop Dustin Johnson winning last year.

2021 Travelers Championship: Picks & Predictions
Obviously it’s best to wait for Geoff Fienberg’s Travelers Championship predictions, which you’ll find live HERE on Tuesday, but if you’re after an early lean we suggest avoiding those at the top of the market and taking a flyer at bigger odds.
The likes of Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau all come in to the event after contending at a gruelling US Open and with fatigue a likely factor for this event, it looks worth siding with an outsider such as Bubba Watson.
Bubba hasn’t been at his best throughout this year, but there were glimpses last week that’s he’s on his way back to form. The return to TPC Highlands could spark that revival even further seeing as he's a three-time winner at the course. +7000 (70/1) odds look worth taking with DraftKings Sportsbook.
