Two-time Travelers Championship winner Bubba Watson ready for busy summer

Bubba Watson holds the championship trophy after winning the Travelers Championship on June 28, 2015, in Cromwell. Watson beat out Paul Casey in a playoff.

HARTFORD >> Bubba Watson (above) has played his best golf on the PGA Tour on some of the most well-known and difficult courses: Augusta National, Riviera and Torrey Pines, accounting for a combined five of his nine tour victories.

You may or may not include TPC River Highlands in that elite group, but the home of the Travelers Championship in Cromwell will always hold a special place in Watson’s heart. It was the scene of his first tour win in 2010 and he added another title at River Highlands last year.

“I feel comfortable here since I won it before,” Watson said at the Marriott Hartford Downtown Monday morning. “I’ve won in different areas, all on different grass. I’ve won in China, the Bahamas, L.A. a couple of times (Riviera) and Augusta, Georgia.”

Less than 24 hours after finishing tied for 51st place at the U.S. Open at Oakmont CC in Pennsylvania, Watson was in Hartford, then in Cromwell for Travelers Championship Media Day.
