Travelers Championship Matchups
BUBBA WATSON vs. JIM FURYK
Watson is the defending Champ at Travelers and near the top of this year's FedExCup standings. How will he do against Jim Furyk, the reigning FedExCup champion from 2010?
BEN CRANE vs. HUNTER MAHAN
Crane has played exactly one competitive round at TPC River Highlands; Mahan has played 30 rounds and and has four top-4 finishes, including a win. But don't let that influence you.
AARON BADDELEY vs. PADRAIG HARRINGTON
Can the youth movement continue or will one of golf's elite put a stop to it? Check out PGATOUR.COM on Tuesday afternoon to get an insider's look at this matchup.
LUCAS GLOVER vs. GEOFF OGILVY
Both won their U.S. Open titles in the Northeast -- Glover in '09 and Ogilvy in '06. Who will play better in Connecticut at the Travelers Championship?
KEEGAN BRADLEY vs. MICHAEL BRADLEY
No, they're not related. But they do have something in common -- they've each won a TOUR event this year (Keegan at HP Byron Nelson Championship and Michael at Puerto Rico Open).
