Brendan Steele is set to tee it up this week in the $7.4-million Travelers Championship on the TPC River Highlands course in Cromwell, Connecticut.
The Idyllwild native has previously played the Travelers nine times — every year since he joined the PGA tour — collecting five top-20 finishes, including a top-5 in 2014.
PGA Tour player Nick Watney learned after the first round of last week’s tournament that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. He immediately withdrew and self-isolated. Brendan was not at last week’s tournament.
Brendan will tee off Thursday at 10:10 a.m. PDT and Friday at 4:55 a.m. PDT, playing both days with Cameron Smith and Corey Conners.
