CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) - The number 6th ranked golfer according to the World Golf Rankings is coming to Cromwell.

Scottie Scheffler will join the 2022 Travelers Championship field, event organizers announced on Wednesday.

“This commitment from Scottie is great news for the tournament because it gives us another top-10 player who enjoys playing at TPC River Highlands,” said Nathan Grube, Travelers Championship tournament director. “We want to provide our fans in attendance and those watching from home the best experience, with the opportunity to watch golf’s biggest and brightest stars.”

Scheffler became a winner on the PGA Tour last month by capturing the Waste Management Phoenix Open in a playoff. He also tied for second at the Houston Open this season and finished fourth at the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba.

“It was just a matter of time before Scottie won on the PGA TOUR because he is a world-class athlete and has been playing extremely well,” said Andy Bessette, executive vice president and chief administrative officer at Travelers. “His hard work, tremendous attitude, and consistent play over the past few seasons have gotten him into the top tier of professional golfers. We’re really excited that he’s coming to play our tournament.”

Scheffler joins three other players ranked among the world’s top 10 – No. 5 Rory McIlroy, No. 7 Justin Thomas and No. 9 Dustin Johnson – in the field for the 2022 Travelers Championship, which will be held June 20-26 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut.
