The Travelers Championship is the last of a three-tournament run of big events in golf One And Done pools in June. After this tournament, the only remaining events with a first place prize over $3 million are The Open and the FedEx Playoff tournaments.

So it’s time to use the golfers you need to win, and craft an optimal pick strategy that takes into account your current place in the standings.

Last week, we introduced weekly One And Done pick popularity estimates, to help you decide if you wanted to take a popular golfer or try to get unique, depending on where you currently stand in your pool. That approach becomes central to strategy this week.

Last Week’s One And Done Pick Results

  • Bryson DeChambeau was the most popular pick to win the U.S. Open, and came through with a final hole up-and-down from the bunker, to win $4.3 million.
  • Rory McIlroy finished 2nd after having the lead with four holes remaining, before missing two short putts in that span; he cashed $2.32 million.
  • Patrick Cantlay and Tony Finau were both reasonably unpopular picks, at under 1% popularity each, and finished in a tie for 3rd, earning over $1 million.
  • Scottie Scheffler had by far his worst result of the last calendar year, finishing well back and never having a below par round.

Travelers Championship One And Done Pick Strategy: Purse Info

The Travelers Championship has a total prize purse of $20,000,000, with $3,600,000 going to 1st place.

It is the last Signature Event of the season with a limited field and no cut, and is likely the highest remaining prize opportunity until we get to the FedEx playoff events in August. (We do not officially know The Open prize amount yet.)

At this point, your default pick strategy should be to target one of your five best remaining win odds options, only deviating from that for popularity/uniqueness purposes as warranted.
