"Among the entries this week will be three frustrated major winners. Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day all missed the cut at Shinnecock Hills."

The PGA Tour heads to Connecticut for the traditional post-US Open bash.

This week's Travellers Championship will once again be staged at TPC River Highlands, a lush parkland course located in New England.

River Highlands started life as Middletown Golf Club in 1928, later becoming Edgewood Country Club, before being completely redesigned by Pete Dye and renamed TPC of Connecticut in 1982.

After some extensive remodelling during the late 1980s, the name was changed again to its current title.

The gently rolling fairways cover almost 150 acres, with the course undergoing some more alterations during the winter of 2015-16.

Regarding these recent changes, the club's website reads: "The primary focus was to renovate and reposition bunkers, as well as several greens and tee boxes." The layout and routing remained untouched.

The course sits high above Connecticut River, around 30 miles from the coast and approximately 140 miles from Long Island, New York, where last week's US Open was held.

A low-scoring venue, 20 of the last 21 champions to be crowned at TPC River Highlands posted 72-hole totals of under 270.

Major Misfortune

Among the entries this week will be three frustrated major winners.

Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day all missed the cut at Shinnecock Hills last Friday, and will be hoping to rediscover their touch as quickly as possible with The Open and PGA Championship just around the corner.

Spieth is the defending champion, having won on his River Highlands' debut, but is currently experiencing the most lack-lustre spell of his young career.

Course Specialists

Paul Casey, Marc Leishman and Bubba Watson are among a number of course specialists teeing-up, with the latter a two-time champion.

Casey, who rarely finishes outside the top 20 nowadays, topped the Driving Accuracy standings at River Highlands 12 months ago.

However, three of the four players who finished above the Englishman after 72 holes in 2017, were ranked outside the top 40 in this category at the end of four days.

Perhaps accuracy will prove more important from the fairway, than off the tee, this weekend.

Others who have strong River Highlands' records include Daniel Berger, Charley Hoffman, Ryan Moore, Brendan Steele and Kevin Streelman.

Hoffman, who started well in the US Open last week, has twice stood on the podium in Connecticut but never the top step.

Meanwhile Berger, who was sixth last week on Long Island, is averaging 67.13 for his eight rounds in Connecticut.

Finally, Moore should feel fresh having been one of the highest ranked golfers to miss out on US Open qualification.

In 10 trips to this tournament, the quiet American has finished inside the top-seven five times.
