Top Players To Participate In Travelers Championship
The event will witness some of the best Golf players including: Jason Day, Paul Casey, Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Aaron Baddeley, and Andrew Landry. The Travelers champion will feature five golfers ranked among the world’s top 10 and all four reigning major championship winners. The top five players who will take part in the Official World Golf Ranking are Justin Thomas (No.2), the defending champion Jordan Spieth (No.4), Jason Day (No.8), Brooks Koepka and Rory Mcllroy.
Will Jordan Spieth Will Be Able To Defend His Title?
Well, last years bunker shot by Jordan Spieth on the first hole of the playoff was the highlight of the tournament leading him to defeat Daniel Berger. The New England crowd went into a frenzy around the 18th green. This time around it will not be a piece of cake for him and he will have to work even harder to defend his title. He has been struggling to perform in 2018 and his morale is not at all time highs.
