It’s always exciting when the PGA Tour rolls through Connecticut. The annual Travelers Championship is happening this week in Cromwell. Some of the biggest names in golf are competing, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and one of Connecticut’s own! 19-year-old Ben James from Milford, CT tee’d it up Thursday for the first time at the Travelers. Playing as an amateur he did really well in rounds one and two. Shooting a 72 (+2) on Thursday and a 69 (-1) on Friday (+1 for the tournament). Unfortunately he will not make the cut for the weekend as the scores for the top players are pretty nuts. But what a debut!
Ben has a bright future ahead too. He just graduated high school this year and will be heading to the University of Virginia. For someone who started playing competitive golf at the age of FOUR it’s safe to say this will not be the last we see of Benjamin James playing golf at a high level.
Good luck Ben!
