Highlights: Round 2 of Travelers Championship 2021; half the field eliminated ahead of the weekend

Travelers Championship

CROMWELL, Conn. (WTNH) — Round 2 the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell started off with two pro golfers sharing the lead.

In Round 1 Thursday, Japan’s Satoshi Kodaira and Kramer Hickok of the U.S. each shot 7 under 63, the best in their careers on tour. Talor Gooch is one shot back at 6 under.

Defending Champion Dustin Johnson has the chance to reclaim the No. 1 spot in the world ranking since U.S. Open champ Jon Rahm is sitting out this week. Round 1 left him with an even-par 70. He’s in a group with Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau, and they are set to tee off at 7:45 a.m. Friday.

Three-time Travelers champion Bubba Watson is in a group at 4 under par.

Director of the Travelers Championship, Nathan Grube spoke to News 8 about round two and what to expect.

“People are just excited to be here, to be honest. This is one of the first big events where the community has really gotten together in a long time,” said Grube. “We did make some changes. We are at limited capacity this year…at about 10,000 people a day. Our structures are all open air…”

Another former champ and fan-favorite Phil Mickelson ended Round 1 at one under. It’s been 19 years since Lefty won in Cromwell. The tournament had a different name back then.
