CROMWELL, CT (WFSB) -- The Travelers Championship is rapidly approaching, and Connecticut is gearing up for some professional golf.

From now until play begins, Channel 3 is taking you to the TPC River Highlands in Cromwell to get a look at each hole on the course.

Hole 6 is a par 5 at 574 yards.

Head golf pro Ron Scheyd says a lot of pros hope to make birdie on this tough hole.

"TPC River Highlands has two par 5's, this is the first of the par 5's. Number 6 is a wide open driving hole; you'll see some guys swing for the fences here off of the tee, the second shot is challenging, you'll see some long irons and some fairway woods on number 6, a lot of birdies throughout the week, it's a great place to see some action early in the round," he said.
