CROMELL, Conn. (WTIC Radio) - Bubba Watson is returning to the Travelers Championship.

The three-time winner of the tournament has committed to play this year at TPC River Highlands, officials announced Tuesday.

“Bubba has become synonymous with our tournament through the success he’s had on the golf course and his great generosity off it,” said tournament Director Nathan Grube. “Many of the best moments in Travelers Championship history involve Bubba and his family, and we are glad to have him back in 2020.”

Watson’s first career PGA Tour victory came at the Travelers Championship in 2010. He has added 11 wins since that time, with two more in Connecticut in 2015 and 2018, along with two major championships at the Masters in 2012 and 2014.

Watson has appeared 13 times at the tournament.

The Travelers Championship will be held June 22–28 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.
