  • No Travelers Championship cut line will help sleeper picks
  • Will another longshot pick surprise the field?
  • Which players offer solid value as a sleeper pick?

As the PGA Tour’s best invade Cromwell, Connecticut for the Travelers Championship, there’s a notable name missing from the field. No Rory McIlroy is not a sleeper but his absence this week may just open the door for a Travelers Championship sleeper to break through into the winner’s circle. There have been multiple surprise winners over the years at this event, and with such a small field, it’s quite possible another player with long odds in the Travelers Championship odds will prevail. And things will come a bit easier, especially since there isn’t a Travelers Championship projected cut line.

Past longshot winners include Ken Duke, Russell Know and Chez Reavie just to name a few. Last year Keegan Bradley was by no means the favorite heading into the week, but he was able to outlast all the other players in the field to take home the win. When looking at the Travelers Championship sleeper pick odds, there’s a handful of names that stand out. From former major champions to PGA Tour veterans, there are several players who could wind up cashing in large in what is the final signature event of the 2024 PGA Tour season.

Top Travelers Championship Sleepers

Adam Scott (+500000 at DraftKings sportsbook)

Playing some inspired golf lately Adam Scott is a name to consider this week when looking for a sleeper pick at the Travelers Championship. A player with major pedigree, Scott sits 58th in the official world golf rankings. With just two missed cuts to his record this season, Scott has shown that he hasn’t lost his competitive edge after all these years on the PGA Tour. Following a missed cut at the PGA Championship, Scott has gone tie for 12th at the Charles Schwab Championship, tie for 42nd at the RBC Canadian Open and then tied for 32nd at the U.S. Open where he finished with an impressive Sunday showing of 69 on the final day of the tournament.

Will Zalatoris (+125000 at Caesars Sportsbook)

When an event has only 68 players in the field you are going to find many big names with long odds, especially when Scottie Scheffler is in that field. This week Will Zalatoris is simply too far down the odds list to be ignored. While injuries have plagued him, he has been back from injury long enough now that he is ready to return to the winner’s circle for the first time since the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship, which was the only time he has tasted victory on the PGA Tour. Although he did miss the cut at the U.S. Open, Zalatoris does have three top ten finishes this year. When looking at the odds for sleepers at the Travelers Championship, Zalatoris should be a name to remember.

Tom Hoge (+9000 at FanDuel sportsbook)

*Odds were +32500

Sitting at number 64 in the official world golf rankings, Tom Hoge is looking for his second career win and first since he won for the first time in 2022 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. The North Carolina native missed the cut with the U.S. Open in his home state last week, but we’re going to give him a pass on that one. Prior to that it had been a season to remember for Hoge with two top-ten finishes to his credit. With nine top 25’s in 19 events, Hoge has found himself on the leaderboard this season often. Expect him to bounce back nicely this week following his disappointing week in his home state last week.

Justin Rose (+400000 at Caesars Sportsbook)

A big-time player with a knack for being all over leaderboards is England’s Justin Rose. It has been an up and down season for Rose, but when his game is on, he can compete still with the best in the world. With 11 PGA Tour wins to his record, it has been an illustrious career for Rose. A win last year at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was his first trip to victory lane in four seasons. Just one top ten to his credit this year, it has been hit or miss for Rose this year. But when he is on, like his tie for sixth-place finish at last month’s PGA Championship, he can compete with the best in the world.

Chris Kirk (+500000 at DraftKings sportsbook)

2024 couldn’t have gotten off to a better start for Chris Kirk winning The Sentry, which is the opening event played on the PGA Tour season. He followed it up the next week with a tie for 18th at the Sony Open in Hawaii. However, things have gone sideways for Kirk since he opened the season with such a flourish. Four missed cuts have been added to his resume on the season and just one top ten finish outside of the win at The Sentry. But an impressive performance at the U.S. Open where he finished tied for 26th after an impressive display of golfing. If Kirk has turned the corner, these are some massive odds for someone who has won the last two seasons on the PGA Tour.
