During the practice round on Tuesday at the Travelers Championship, PGA TOUR players were given a chance to hit at The Umbrella at 15½, a floating green in the pond between the 15th, 16th, and 17th holes in the shape of Travelers’ iconic red umbrella logo.
Sticking his shot just seven inches from the pin, this year’s winner was TOUR pro Michael Kim.
The hole is 85 yards long and the target is a 40-foot umbrella. Travelers donates $10,000 to the charities of the winner’s choosing. Kim earned a $5,000 donation to both the Zach Johnson Foundation and Windy Hill Foundation.
