going on, so you knew that guys were making birdies and there were all kinds of low numbers on the board,” Rollins said. “I just kept plugging along and staying with what I was doing and managed to get a good round out of it.”


As good as Moore and Rollins’ rounds were, the performance of the day went to Michael Thompson, a 26-year-old rookie who shot the best round of the day, a 62, that featured a 29 on the back nine to lock up a fourth-place finish.


“It was very exciting, especially this being my dream to play on the PGA TOUR,” he said. ■

The Travelers Championship is one of the PGA TOUR’s longest-running tournaments, beginning in 1952 as the Insurance City Open. It was initially played at Wethersfield Country Club but by the late 1970s and early 1980s, it was clear that the tournament needed more space to accommodate the large galleries.

found a site about a half-hour’s drive south of Hartford, where there was a course designed by R.J. Ross, a nephew of the famed architect Donald Ross. Pete Dye designed the original TPC River Highlands, producing two nines that were remarkably dissimilar. The front nine was fairly traditional but when it came to the back nine his imagination took full flight. After a few years, Bobby Weed, who had a long history of working with the PGA TOUR, got the call. He built seven new holes and altered 11 others, resulting in a course that year in and year out produces some of the most exciting finishes on TOUR—along with some of the largest galleries.
