CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -

It was an exciting and historic way to cap off this year’s Travelers Championship on Sunday.

The beautiful weather was all fans could talk about, and while some missed the tournament being in June, they said you couldn’t beat the sun and the perfect days out on the green.

"Great turnout and great weather, so all good,” said Todd Thurston of Windsor.

The tournament is in its 65th year in Connecticut.

"I've never been before so this was my first time, and it was nice having good weather,” said Andy Archambeault of Simsbury.

"It's tough this year because the Olympics are going on at the same time. People are home watching the games and missing this, and there are people here missing the Olympics,” said Phyllis Liebman, of South Windsor.

For fans, Sunday was a historic day and one they said they’ll never forget, as Jim Furyk shot a 58, the lowest round ever in a PGA tour event.

Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube said he was thrilled with how this year’s event went.

He said he’s grateful to the fans for being so understanding when play was bumped up Saturday due to impending storms.

"We didn't have any negative comments on social media. People were like, ‘we understand, there were storms’…Public safety,” Grube said.

The tournament will be held in June once again next year.
