New England golf fans can already look forward to the 2018 professional tournament schedule.
The Travelers Championship will be held next year June 21-24, immediately following the U.S. Open, which will be played at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on Long Island. The proximity of the U.S. Open site to TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Ct. where the Travelers is played each year, should help draw another strong field in 2018.
PGA superstar Jordan Spieth won this year’s Travelers Championship when he sank a bunker shot for birdie on the first hole of a playoff with Daniel Berger.
The annual CVS Health Charity Classic is usually played the week following The Travelers Championship at Rhode Island Country Club in Barrington, although no date for 2018 had been set as of publication.
The event brings players together from the PGA, Champions, and LPGA tours in a three-person team best ball competition. Brooke Henderson, Keegan Bradley and co-cost Billy Andrade won this year’s event.
And the Dell Technologies Championship is scheduled for Aug. 31 to Sept. 3 at the TPC Boston course in Norton, Ma. The event is the second stop on the season-ending PGA Tour playoffs to determine a FedEx Cup champion. This year’s tournament was won by another young star, Justin Thomas, who went on to win the $10 million prize for finishing first in the FedEd Cup race. The 24-year-old Thomas, who finished second at the season-ending Tour Championship, has won six tournaments in his PGA Tour career.
