The Travelers Championship has a reputation for being a relatively easy respite after the U.S. Open.
Instead, it ended in a sudden-death playoff with a 44-year-old champion who had never won on the PGA Tour before.
The Travelers played to form this weekend at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., as the lead changed hands numerous times throughout the weekend.
Two who had never won before, Chris Stroud and Ken Duke, battled it out after scoring 12 under for the tournament with the journeyman Duke winning on the second hole of the playoff after knocking a short iron stiff.
At one point, six players shared the lead at 10 under on the last day, and 17 players were within three strokes of the lead. Among the group were two Masters champions, the past two Open winners, a player seeking redemption after last year’s debacle here and a slew of players looking for their first win this year.
Thrilling and delightful, here is a list of the winners and losers at the Travelers.
