Travelers Championship Preview: Best Spot to Use Spieth

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

The PGA Tour heads all the way across the country this week to Cromwell, Conn., and luckily, many of those who were in attendance at Pebble Beach, have decided to make the trek to the Northeast.

This Week: Travelers Championship – TPC River Highlands, Cromwell, Conn. 

Last Year: Bubba Watson shot a final-round 63 on his way to a three-stroke victory over three players, including Paul Casey and J.B. Holmes.
