CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -

The 62-year history of the PGA tour in Connecticut is the subject of a new exhibit that was unveiled to the media Saturday. 

That new exhibit is coming to David & Geri Epstein Learning Center at the practice facility at the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell. 

"As the exhibit proudly reveals, the gallery is the story of the thousands of volunteers, sponsors, players and fans of our storied 62-year old PGA Tour event, from the ICO days to now the Travelers Championship," said Ted May, whose family along with the ICO/GHO Past Chairman's Association are sponsors of the exhibit. 

The exhibit is a "decade-by-decade walk through time using words, photos, special video interactive kiosk and historic tournament artifacts." In the exhibit, there is a video from 1952, Sammy Davis Jr's famed golf bag and putter, tournament crystal and signed pin flags, among other memorabilia.

Bob Toski, who is the 1953 ICO Champion, spoke to members of the media about the exhibit at the First Tee of Connecticut Annual Donor Breakfast on Saturday morning.

The First Tee of Connecticut teaches young people the game of golf and core values while playing golf.

The exhibit will be open to the public "during regular Learning Center hours after the Travelers Tournament."
