However, Simpson will not be participating in the Travelers Championship, as the PGA Tour announced his withdrawal on Wednesday due to precautionary reasons. In addition to Simpson, Cameron Champ, Graeme McDowell, Brooks Koepka and Chase Koepka have also withdrawn from the event.
Chez Reavie won this event last June, finishing 17-under par and four strokes ahead of Zack Sucher and Keegan Bradley. The field will once again be an expanded one and will feature top names like Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson for the third straight week. The notable exception is Tiger Woods, who will not participate once again. Daniel Berger, who won the first PGA Tour event after the extended COVID-19 layoff two weeks ago, will also sit this week out. The top 65 and ties will make the cut after 36 holes.
