Olympic golf prompts schedule change for Travelers Championship

Next year’s Travelers Championship golf tournament will be pushed to the first week of August, organizers said.

The tournament, which concluded June 28 this year with a Bubba Watson victory, will be held Aug. 1 to Aug. 7 in 2016. 

"Golf's return to the Olympics for the first time since 1904 will affect the majority of PGA TOUR events taking place from June through August," Tournament Director Nathan Grube said in a statement. "By working closely with the PGA TOUR, we identified the best timing for recruiting a strong player field and finishing the planned modifications to TPC River Highlands."

The Cromwell golf course’s multi-million-dollar renovations include new fan viewing areas around the four finishing holes, greens modifications and bunker renovations.

The tournament would return to a late June schedule for 2017, organizers said.
