Six-time major champion Phil Mickelson has joined the Travelers Championship's 2021 players field, his second time playing in the tournament.

Mickelson won the 2021 PGA championship this year, becoming the oldest major winner in tour history and first player to win a major after age 50. The golfer made his first appearance at the Travelers Championship in 2019.

The tournament will be held at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell June 23 through June 27. Organizers are expecting about 10,000 people each day, including players, tournament staff, fans and others. 

Golf fans can buy tickets through the championship's website. They will be available in two pricing tiers: grounds tickets cost between $50 and $70 ($50 for Wednesday, $65 for Thursday and Friday and $70 for Saturday and Sunday), and courtyard tickets cost between $150 and $280 ($150 for Wednesday, $260 for Thursday and Saturday and $280 for Friday and Sunday).

Organizers previously announced fans at the tournament will have to adhere to COVID-19 precautions, including wearing masks unless eating or drinking, and following social distancing measures.

Travelers Cos. CEO Alan Schnitzer announced in March the company would extend its sponsorship of the tournament through 2030.

In addition to Mickelson, defending champion Dustin Johnson has committed to play in this year’s tournament, as have Bryson DeChambeau and three-time winner Bubba Watson, among others.

The Travelers Championship is staged each year in June at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell. Travelers has been the title sponsor since 2007.

The event was known as the Greater Hartford Open until 2004.
