2104 Travelers Championship Preview: Leaderboard
MARC LEISHMAN had to sit out the just completed US Open but the big Victorian returns to the US PGA Tour this week to the scene of his debut victory in 2012.
Leishman was the only Aussie to win on the tour that year but in 2014 victories have been much more plentiful.
The Aussies have a number of chances at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, probably led by world No.7 Jason Day, who did superbly well to return from injury and finish T4 at the US Open on the weekend.
Other Aussies lining up include another Pinehurst performer in Aaron Baddeley, Matt Jones, Stuart Appleby, Greg Chalmers, Scott Gardiner, Bronson La Cassie and Oliver Goss.
It will be Goss’s very first event as a professional after competing as an amateur in the US Open.
“I’m excited about turning professional and looking forward taking on the challenges that life in the pro ranks brings,” the 20 year old Goss said this week.
“I’ve been fortunate to have some fantastic experiences already as an amateur golfer and I’ll take that into my life as a professional golfer,” added Goss, who was top amateur at the US Masters and runner up at the 2013 US Amateur.
While Goss is the youngest player in the field this week, 51 year old Vijay Singh is the oldest.
Featured contenders this week include Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Keegan Bradley, Sergio Garcia and defending champion Ken Duke.
Fox Sports coverage begins Friday 5am – 8am.
