The 2024 Travelers Championship Recap

Cromwell, CT – Scottie Scheffler has won The 2024 Travelers Championship after a playoff with Tom Kim.  This marks his 6th PGA Tour win of 2024 and his 12th overall win.  Along with the title and 700 FedEx Cup points, he also earned another $3.6 million in prize money.  

The golf wasn’t the only exciting aspect of this tournament though.  As the final group was getting ready to finish the round, five protestors stormed the 18th hole with paint and smoke bombs and were promptly tackled and arrested.  Red and white powdery substances littered the green of the final hole and needed to be cleaned up before a playoff between Scheffler and Kim. 

Nobody had a closer shot to beat Scheffler though than Kim, who nearly holed out from the fairway on the 18th hole of regulation.  After draining the birdie putt, that led to a playoff.  However, after a poor wedge shot from the fairway, he would miss out on what would have been his 4th career PGA Tour win.  

Scheffler continues his dominant 2024 season and continues to prove he is the best golfer in the world.  This win allows him to join the likes of players like Tiger Woods, Nick Price, and Vijay Singh who all won six or more times in a single PGA Tour season.  This was his 4th signature event win this season and his 6th win in his last 10 starts.  He now has more FedEx Cup points than the 2nd and 3rd place golfers combined.  

The next tournament will be The Rocket Mortgage Classic.  There in Detroit, Rickie Fowler will look to defend his sixth PGA Tour win.  It is one of the weaker fields in recent history though, as only 10 top 50 players will attend.  Undoubtedly, that’s because of three straight weeks of signature events and a major championship.  The top players that will play include Tom Kim, Will Zalatoris, and Cameron Smith.
