HARTFORD, Conn. — The Travelers Championship has added two-time major champion Jordan Spieth to the field for this year’s tournament, which will played a week after the U.S. Open.

It will be the 23-year-old’s first appearance at the Connecticut PGA event.

Spieth, who won the 2015 Masters and U.S. Open, is currently ranked No. 6 in the world. He becomes the third top-10 golfer to commit to the Travelers, joining No. 2 Rory McIlroy and No. 3 Jason Day.

The field also includes two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, Justin Thomas, Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk and defending champion Russell Knox.
