Stewart Cink will be hoping to emulate one of the most decorated golfers in the history of the Travelers Championship, Bubba Watson. 
Watson, who will be missing this weekend due to an injury, has won this tournament three times and only Billy Casper has won more titles with four.
His American compatriot Cink has clinched the Travelers Championship title twice and he will match Watson's three trophies if wins this year's tournament.

After winning the Mexican Open and three events on the Nike Tour (now the Korn Ferry Tour) in 1996, Cink joined the PGA Tour in 1997.
The Alabama-born golfer won his first Travelers Championship title in 1997 in what was his rookie season and the tournament was still known as Canon Greater Hartford Open.
Then in 2008, Cink reached his highest ever ranking, sixth, in the Official World Golf Rankings with his victory at the Travelers Championship in suburban Hartford.
The49-year-old missed the cut at the recent US Open, but he will be returning to the TPC River Highlands where he has good memories.

Cink, who won the 2009 Open Championship for his only major win, recently reflected on his performances in 2022. 
“It’s kind of a year that’s gotten away from me so far,” Cink said ahead of this year's RBC Heritage where he finished 68th. 
“I’ve been really close to playing very well, but I just have been trying to grasp at something that hasn’t connected just yet and I’ve had some moments.
"But it hasn’t been the kind of year I was hoping for.”
