Expert Winner
Rob Bolton Bubba Watson

Rob Bolton of PGA didn’t specifically name a winner in his power rankings piece for this year’s edition of the Travelers Championship. But he seemed to feel very optimistic about Bubba Watson’s chances of defending his title at TPC River Highlands, placing the 37-year-old veteran at No. 1 spot of his list.

Bolton’s main reason for doing so is heavily based on the fact that this particular tournament is one of Watson’s favorites. The World No. 6, after all, already has two wins (last year and 2010) there, and is aiming to become the first player since Phil Mickelson (2001-02) to win back-to-back Travelers Championship crowns. Watson is priced at +1,200 to do so.

U.S. Golf TV

Expert Winner
Troy Klongerbo Chris Stroud or Bubba Watson

Troy Klongerbo of U.S. Golf TV is also expecting Bubba Watson to succeed in retaining his Travelers Championship title. However, Klongerbo notes that Chris Stroud ( +1,500) looks quite capable of stealing the defending champion’s crown.

Stroud, who currently ranks 131 in the FedEx Cup rankings, is no stranger to this tournament. He’s registered four top-20 finishes and almost won the event itself back in 2013. Stroud’s also going to play with a sense of urgency here, as he needs to start delivering the goods consistently to hopefully be around for the playoffs.


Expert Winner
TopBet Patrick Reed

Over here at TopBet, we’re putting our trust on Patrick Reed (+1,800), the world’s 20th-ranked player, to emerge triumphant at TPC River Highlands. Why so? Well, his current form, basically, looks really good right now. Reed heads into this tournament with some serious momentum thanks to two-consecutive top-15 finishes (at The Open and PGA Championship).
