Keegan Bradley commits to 2023 Travelers Championship

Keegan Bradley, a New England native and five-time PGA TOUR winner and major champion, will tee it up at TPC River Highlands June 22-25 at the Travelers Championship.

HARTFORD, Conn – Keegan Bradley will play in the 2023 Travelers Championship. It will be the 13th straight tournament appearance for Bradley, a New England native who is a five-time PGA TOUR winner and major champion.

“Given Keegan’s local roots, there’s no doubt he will have strong support with so many family members and friends in attendance, not to mention our tournament fans who are behind him,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “I know it’s a special tournament to Keegan, who has momentum going this season with four top 10 finishes, including a win.”

Bradley, who is No. 22 in the Official World Golf Ranking, has played at TPC River Highlands every year since 2011, when he was named PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year. Bradley won twice that year, including a playoff victory at the PGA Championship in his major championship debut. He has added TOUR victories at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in 2012, the BMW Championship in 2018 and the ZOZO CHAMPIONSHIP earlier this season.

The Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell (CT) is scheduled June 22-25.

Born in Vermont and a graduate of Hopkinton High School in Massachusetts, Bradley has played on two U.S. Ryder Cup teams (2012, 2014) and competed in the Presidents Cup in 2013. His best finish at the Travelers Championship was a tie for second in 2019.

“Keegan has been a great ambassador for New England golf and has established himself as one of the best players on the PGA TOUR,” said Andy Bessette, Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer at Travelers. “He’s been such a wonderful friend to this tournament, playing every year that he’s been on TOUR. We’re looking forward to seeing Keegan, catching up with him and his family and watching him compete as part of the best player field in our tournament’s history.”

Bradley joins a loaded field, with commitments already from five top 10 players: Scottie Scheffler (No. 1), Rory McIlroy (No. 2), Patrick Cantlay (No. 4), defending champion Xander Schauffele (No. 7) and Will Zalatoris (No. 8).

The 2023 Travelers Championship will be held June 19-25 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, and fans are welcome on site beginning Wednesday, June 21. Tickets officially go on sale to the general public beginning April, 3.
