Jordan Spieth becomes a late addition to the Travelers Championship field

Arguably the man who wrote the greatest shot in the history of the Travelers Championship was a late Friday addition to the field.

Jordan Spieth, who won the 2017 Travelers’ Championship thanks to a hole-in-the-flying shot in a sudden-death playoff, committed to this year’s championship shortly after completing his second round at the US Open.

Travelers Tournament Director Nathan Groppi said he got a call from Jay Danzi, Speth’s agent, around 7 p.m.

“He said, ‘Hey, we’re coming in,’” said Danzi. Groppi said he had spoken with Spieth’s group for the past six weeks about returning to play TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.

Players who compete have a short time after completing their second round to enter the following week’s tournament if they have not already done so.

According to media reports, Danzi told reporters at the US Open, which is being held at the Country Club in Brooklyn, Massachusetts, that Spieth had stomach problems. Spieth made a cut on opening.
