Betting Odds: Watson, Koepka Favored at Travelers Championship

Tournaments that follow a major championship tend to get overlooked, especially the one after the last major of the year, but players still show up fighting for position on the FedEx Cup and Ryder Cup standings. This week’s Travelers Championship, being held at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, CT, doesn’t have a star studded field, but does feature nine of the games top-25 players, starting with world number six Bubba Watson.

 
Watson loves this track. The defending champ, and two-time winner, is the favorite at 14/1, but has struggled with consistency, especially with the flat stick, as of late.

Brooks Koepka (16/1) returned from injury last week at the PGA Championship and played some of the best golf of his season, finishing with a T4 at -9. He will be a player to keep an eye on this week.

 
Branden Grace (18/1) continues to perform well on the big stage, but seems to always be the forgotten man despite his name consistently lurking around the top of the leaderboard with 6 top 10’s in just 15 starts this year. Grace, like Koepka, finished with a T4 last week.

 
Jon Rahm comes in at 30/1 odds despite just recently turning pro. Experts have this guy pegged to be one of the best in the game in a few years, and thus far, his performances have matched those projections. The Spaniard contended at the AT&T National, where he could have won if it weren’t for several lip outs, and had a T2 at the RBC Canadian Open.

 
If Daniel Summerhays plays at all like he played last week, where he finished 3rd at the PGA, he could be a steal at 60/1. Other players to keep an eye on include Keegan Bradley and Padraig Harrington (60/1) and mad scientist Bryson Dechambeau (90/1).
