McIlroy looks to regain momentum at Travelers

Jun 16 2017 Erin WI USA Rory Mc Ilroy walks up the 11th fairway during the second round of the U.S. Open golf tournament at Erin Hills

"This is one of my favourite courses on the PGA Tour". We saw that with Jim Furyk. Bubba Watson has won here twice.

Garcia is looking forward to being welcomed onto the tee as Masters champion.

The special ceremony this morning is being held to dedicate the Memorial Garden in memory of Fishman, the former chairman and CEO of Travelers who died of ALS shortly after last year's competition.

The American Ryder Cup star, dubbed the "American Eagle" by many, is back on the right track after losing it for a little bit.

Jim Furyk returns to the scene of his famed 59 from last season, fresh off his first made cut in three months. He has turned that around, finishing in the top 20 three times in his last five starts and also posting a 22nd in that span.

He hadn't played the week after the U.S. Open before. Steele has been moved back into the $9,000 salary zone on DraftKings. Arriving at TPC River Highlands is a strong field for the week after a major, owing to the overall quality of the tournament for both players and fans. If he wins one more, he's one behind Billy Casper. TPC River Highlands plays to his strengths of short Par 4s, and we know he can lap the field on the greens if he's on...

Charley and the Chocolate Factory is back to his old ways, making cuts and being in contention before ejecting in the chocolate river.

Trump Calls Warmbier's Death A 'total disgrace'
Tour operators told the wire service that Americans account for about a fifth of all non-Chinese tourism to North Korea . Warmbier was not among them, but our efforts on his behalf never ceased, even in the waning days of the administration".

Defending champion is Scotland's Russell Knox who tees it up again this week, and you can get him 66/1 - a tempting price for a defending champion. In addition to the bunker work, other enhancements to the course included: raising front edges and corners of several greens to provide for a greater number of pin positions; leveling several tournament tee boxes, including a new tee at 15; and improved routing and drainage.

It certainly gives the players a chance after getting beat up at U.S. Open.

"It feels like the first 10 years of my career is almost over, but I've still got two majors to play in so I'd like to try to finish that 10 years very well". He is 34th in BoB% and 36th in T2G. This week's event will feature its most world ranking points, a formula based on field strength, in the past decade. He finished sixth here two years ago, so it's a course he's comfortable at.

Knox, who celebrates his 32nd birthday today, has missed seven cuts in his last 12 events but is hoping for a timely tonic before he heads back across the Atlantic to contest the French Open, the Scottish Open and the Open. "It is my course, I play it all the time, when you see the best players in the world, you always want to be a part of it". Finished fourth at The Players.

All three players have come by their optimism honestly - they have, after all, each been ranked No. 1 - and if the crowds that have already gathered at TPC River Highlands are any indication it really doesn't matter what they've done in recent weeks, it's what they do next. Top 10 just two tourneys ago. Not reliable over the long haul but has two top-6 finishes this year. Steele also has five top 25s in six tries here, with the lone missed cut coming in 2012. Placed 11th here in 2014. 32nd in birdies and seventh in scoring average, as well.

While the U.S. Open isn't supposed to be a birdie-fest, that's likely going to be the case at the 6,841-yard, par-70 TPC River Highlands outside Hartford for the Travelers Championship.
