Clouds clear, make way for gorgeous weekend on the green at the Travelers Championship

CROMWELL  — After a week of cloudy skies and showers, clouds cleared Friday afternoon to  a blue sky, making the weather perfect for the finals rounds of the Travelers Championship this weekend!

Phil Mickelson jokes that TPC River Highlands is clearly a left-handed golf course. Mickelson and fellow lefty Bubba Watson have combined to win five times in Connecticut since 2001. The two will be playing in the same Travelers Championship for the first time on Thursday, part of a field that includes 16 of the top 30 golfers in the world.

Here’s some video from the first round.
