The Travellers beckons for surging Seamus

Just a few days after he finished off his third major event, Seamus Power will be back out on the course in Connecticut this afternoon.

The Travellers was won by Harris English last year after an eight-hole play-off with Kramer Hickock.

Waterford's own was T19 that week on 7 under and six shots off the pace of the duo who went to extra holes to decide the winner.

Since that appearance last summer he has gone on to win his first PGA Tour event, he's rocketed up the world rankings and he has played at three majors - making the cut in all three and hitting a top ten in the PGA Championship. Most recently Seamus was tied for twelfth at the US Open.

The world number one Scottie Scheffler comes to the Constitution State as the joint bookies favorite with Rory McIlroy (2nd) and Justin Thomas (5th). Seamus meanwhile is tipped further down the pecking order at 40/1.

Having impressed in Boston last time out, Seamus will be looking to make hay while the sun shines. A total prize pot of $8.3 million is on offer with $1.49 million going to the winner at TPC River Highlands.
