Westwood, Poulter among latest Travelers commitments


Six more golfers committed to the Travelers Championship at the annual media day Tuesday,
including European Ryder Cup teammates Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter.
Also returning to the TPC River Highlands next month are Rickie Fowler, Jason Dufner, 2011 champion Fredrik Jacobson and Padraig Harrington.
Westwood tied for 51st place in his only appearance in Connecticut in 2005. Now at No. 11 in the latest world rankings, Westwood has five top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season. Poulter makes his third straight appearance, his best finish a tie for 24th place. He is 15th in the world rankings.
Fowler is making his third appearance at the Travelers and first since 2010. He is 30th in the world rankings and his only PGA Tour win came at the Wells Fargo Championship in 2012.
Dufner, who won twice on tour last year, is making his fourth appearance at the Travelers. He is 20th in the current world rankings. Harrington is the only major champion of the six, capturing three, including two British Opens.
Jacobson has yet to win since the Travelers two years ago, but had three top 10 finishes this season and is ranked 48th.
