The PGA Tour may have suspended 17 LIV Golf Invitational Series players, with more to follow, but there’s still a strong field for this week’s Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.

Rory McIlroy makes the short journey from Massachusetts to Connecticut as he looks to build on his tie for fifth in last week’s tournament. McIlroy struggled to take the positives from that display, describing it as another missed opportunity after once again falling short of a fifth Major win. Still, having won the RBC Canadian Open in the week leading up to the Brookline event, another strong showing here will represent a highly encouraging run of form for the World No.2.

Other notable entrants include 2017 Travelers Championship winner Jordan Spieth and Keegan Bradley, fresh from his strong US Open showing – and the huge reception he received. World No.9 Sam Burns and World No.6 Patrick Cantlay also appear, while, Rickie Fowler plays after narrowly missing out on a US Open spot. Harris English, who won a mammoth playoff to take last year's title, is in the field, too, as his comeback from hip surgery gathers pace. 

The Travelers Championship is second only to the WM Phoenix Open in attendance on for PGA Tour events, so we can expect the crowd out in force this week as they watch players compete for a purse of $8,300,000. Of that, the winner will receive $1,494,000, with the runner-up earning $904,700.

Below is the full breakdown of the prize money and field.
