State Senator Matt Lesser Applauds Agreement Made to Extend Title Sponsorship of Travelers Championship with PGA Tour Through 2030

State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown), co-chair of the Insurance and Real Estate Committee, is applauding the agreement made between the Travelers Companies, Inc. and the PGA TOUR to extend Travelers’ title sponsorship of the Travelers Championship through 2030. As part of the sponsorship extension, Travelers will remain the Official Property Casualty Insurance Provider of the PGA TOUR, PGA TOUR Champions and Korn Ferry Tour. The Travelers Championship takes place at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, which is one of the five towns in the 9th district Sen. Lesser represents.

“As Cromwell’s state Senator and co-chair of the Insurance & Real Estate Committee, I’m thrilled by Traveler’s corporate citizenship and by its renewed commitment to Cromwell and to the Traveler’s Championship,” said Sen. Lesser. “This is tremendous news for tourism and local jobs as we work to build back a better economy. The Travelers Championship is Connecticut’s only PGA tour stop and I’m glad to see the TPC River Highlands remain a world class golf destination.”
