CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -- On Monday, the Travelers Championship announced that Jordan Spieth will be playing in the 2019 tournament.

“Nobody will ever forget what Jordan accomplished two years ago at TPC River Highlands,” said Travelers Championship Tournament Director Nathan Grube. “The way he won — his reaction, and the reaction from the crowd around the 18th hole — shows the type of excitement he can bring to the event. We’re thrilled that he’ll be playing this year.”

Spieth joins 2019 Travelers Championship commitments that include defending champion Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Brooks Koepka,, Justin Thomas, Francesco Molinari, Bryson DeChambeau, Paul Casey, Tony Finau, Jason Day, Tommy Fleetwood, Patrick Cantlay, Patrick Reed and 2012 Travelers Championship winner Marc Leishman.
