TPC River Highlands close to finishing renovation project

CROMWELL >> For the first time since Travelers took over title sponsorship in 2007, the Travelers Championship golf tournament will not be played the week after the U.S. Open.

Instead, it will be held Aug. 4-7 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell. A number of tournaments on the summer PGA Tour schedule were moved because of the Summer Olympics in Rio the week after the Travelers is played.

That change has provided some extra time to renovate TPC River Highlands. The multi-million dollar project did not lengthen the course (6,820 yards), but did make enough changes where spectators who have attended the tournament for years will notice the different nuances.

Some of those nuances include a new, flattened out viewing area behind the 16th green (pictured above).

What else will be different for this year's tournament? Check out the full story here.
