“Tournament champions become part of the Travelers Championship family, and we’re always happy to see them return. Chez, Jordan and Marc all have great memories from their winning weeks at TPC River Highlands, so I know they’re looking forward to coming back. And we’re looking forward to having them here,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube.

Reavie will make his 10th appearance at the tournament after he had a record setting week last year, making it his second PGA TOUR victory.
