2022 Travelers Championship Odds and Picks

2022 Travelers Championship Odds and Picks

Will the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut end with an exciting playoff finish like last year and as with five of the last eleven? It could happen as the Travelers Championship field is packed following an exciting 2022 U.S. Open!

Matthew Fitzpatrick held off Will Zalitoris at the U.S. Open by one stroke on the last hole. Both of those players are taking a break this week. But others that were in the hunt at the U.S. Open are set to tee things off at the Travelers including the outright favorite Rory McIlroy who comes in at +900 followed by Scottie Scheller at +1000.

The player to fade on this week is Brooks Koepka. As of this writing, the news was breaking that he may be heading to the LIV Golf exhibition series. But, he’s still listed as being in the field as of Tuesday, June 21.

Once again, the Travelers is loaded with a tough group of players and it’s on a course that players are very familiar with. The 156-player field includes 24 of the top 50 players on the OWGR rankings. And, last year’s winner, Harrish English, is returning as is the player that he faced off against for an extended playoff which was Kramer Hickok.

Here are the favorites to win the 2021 Travelers Championship outright:

Rory McIlroy +900

Scottie Scheffler +1000

Justin Thomas +1100

Patrick Cantlay +1400

Sam Burns +1600

Players are teeing off on a course that has not changed much since last year. That’s a welcome bit of news following the USGA’s annual tweaking of the course known as “The Country Club” at Brookline last week for the U.S. Open. TPC River Highlands features greens averaging 5000 sq feet covered in Poa Annua grass draining off to a 3-4” rough.

The course has been tweaked since it was redesigned by Pat Dye but it still has his touch. Fairways feature several trees, predictable bunkers, water, and a host of slight doglegs. At the same time, there are plenty of seemingly straightforward holes that only require a straight shot off the tee.

The course is not overly tricky and the rough will be much more forgiving than that of the U.S. Open last week. Players with clean drivers and a reliable putter will top the leaderboard early.

2022 Travelers Championship Predictions

Scottie Scheffler +1000

Scottie Scheffler faded a bit last week after a roller-coaster round at the U.S. Open on Saturday finishing T2. Then on Sunday he played a solid game but could not shave enough strokes off to keep up with Matthew Fitzpatrick. Scheffler looked more in form for much of last week than he has since he won his 4th event this season. He’s also carded five top 20 finishes recently.

Jordan Spieth +2200

Jordan Spieth won here in 2017 so he knows this course. He’s not at the same level he was back in 2014-2017 but he has been looking better this season. He won at the RBC Heritage and has finished 2nd twice. He dropped to T27 last week at the U.S. Open but had a T7 at the Charles Schwab Challenge.

Seamus Power +5000

Seamus Power has finished in the top 20 in over half of his PGA starts this season. He finished T12 at the U.S. Open with three rounds of 70 and one round of 71. He was T3 at the Sony Open, T4 at the RSM Classic, and T5 at the WGC Dell Match Play. He’s now No. 36 on the OWGR.

Others: I would love to take Rory this week but I think the last few weeks must have been exhausting for him. This course should be a great fit for Harold Varner III (+5000) and he needs a bounce back after missing the cut at the U.S. Open. I like Harris English (+10000) this week. He’s the defending Travelers champ but he’s still recovering from his hip injury.
