Monday, June 24, 2019

(CROMWELL, CT) – Chez Reavie is a PGA Tour winner again after 11 years and 250 events. Reavie won the Travelers Championship on Sunday, closing with a 1 under 69 for a four-stroke victory over Keegan Bradley and Zach Sucher. The 37 year old Reavie, whose first title came as a rookie at the 2008 Canadian Open, finished at 17 under 263 at TPC River Highlands a week after tying for third in the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. The former Arizona State player took a six-stroke lead over Bradley and Sucher into the round after shooting a 63 on Saturday. Reavie had an understated celebration, pulling his ball out of the hole at No. 18 and saluting the crowd with it clenched in his fist. It was the same calm he showed throughout the day, even as Bradley, a New England native from nearby Vermont, chipped away to the cheers of the large galleries. Reavie put the tournament away on the par-4 17th, making a 14 foot birdie putt, while Bradley three-putted for a double bogey. Bradley and Sucher each shot 67, with Sucher playing the back nine in 5 under 30. Reavie, who took home just under $1.3 million, has finished in the top 20 in five of his past six starts. Defending champion Bubba Watson, who was hoping for a fourth title in Connecticut, shot a 71 to finish at 1 under, but said he wasn't disappointed with his week.
