The Travelers Championship field was bolstered with commitments from Lee Westwood, Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler, Padraig Harrington, Ian Poulter and Freddie Jacobson.
Westwood, a veteran of eight European Ryder Cup teams, was a former No. 1 player in the world. Dufner won twice on the PGA Tour last year. Fowler is a perennial fan favorite and won the Wells Fargo Championship last year.
Harrington won the 2007 and ’08 British Opens and ’08 PGA Championship. Ian Poulter has a 12-3 European Ryder Cup career record. Jacobsen captured his first tour victory at TPC River Highlands in 2011.
