Reavie had a record-setting week at TPC River Highlands in 2019, Spieth won the 2017 Travelers Championship in dramatic fashion, holing out from a bunker on the first playoff hole to beat Daniel Berger and Leishman overcame a six-shot deficit in the final round of the 2012 Travelers Championship.

“We’re so proud of our previous winners, and Chez, Jordan and Marc have all been wonderful champions,” Travelers' Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer, Andy Bessette said . “I am looking forward to see who will win this year’s Travelers Championship and join them in that distinguished club.”

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Travelers Championship held June 25–28, will be a TV-only event this year.
