PGA DFS: Travelers Championship 2024

Course Breakdown

  • TPC River Highlands
  • Cromwell, Conn.
  • Par 70
  • 6,841 Yards
  • Bent Fairways
  • Bent/Poa Greens

TPC River Highlands is known for its accessible fairways and greens, making it conducive to scoring. The course features eight par-4s between 450-500 yards and one drivable par-4 under 300 yards. With approach shots primarily within the 100-175-yard range, players who excel in these distances will have an advantage. The greens are fast yet manageable, unlike the challenges seen in recent weeks. Water hazards are in play on five holes, and 70 bunkers are scattered across the course. Play surrounding the greens can be tricky due to sloping greens and collection areas. However, it is not nearly as critical as approach shots and putting.

The weather forecast suggests hot conditions with occasional gusts (10-15 mph) and intermittent rain, likely keeping the course receptive.

Our projected winning score is -23, with no cut in this event. Previous winners like Keegan Bradley, Xander Schauffele and Dustin Johnson illustrate the importance of strong approach play and birdie-making ability.

Stats to Build Around:

  • Strokes Gained Total
  • Strokes Gained Approach
  • Strokes Gained Putting
  • Birdie-or-Better Gained
  • Bogey Avoidance
  • Proximity From 125-150 Yards & 150-175 Yards
  • Par-4 Scoring From 450-500 yards
  • Opportunities Gained

PGA DFS Strategy

Given the short course and the likelihood of low scores, it will be key to target players who excel at approach shots, putting and making birdies in bunches. The smaller field size suggests focusing on a condensed player pool and targeting single-entry contests to take stands on your top picks.
