The world’s best golfers return to Connecticut from June 18 to 24 for the 2018 Travelers Championship held at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell.  Hartford HealthCare, a key sponsor of the Travelers Championship for the past decade, will have an even bigger presence at this year’s event as it unveils the Hartford HealthCare Sports Zone.

This 30’x50’ public access venue, located between the 15th tee and 16th green, will feature some of the best views on the course while providing guests with interactive activities, healthy foods and beverages and a climate controlled area where they can enjoy the tournament and learn more about the world class services available at Hartford HealthCare’s Bone & Joint Institute.

Visitors of the Hartford HealthCare Sports Zone will not only be able to watch the likes of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Bubba Watson play the exciting 15th and 16th holes from elevated stadium seating, they will also have the opportunity to speak with clinical specialists and doctors about sports health, have their golf swings analyzed by certified therapists and participate in full motion screening assessments to see how they stack up against the pros.
