Defending champion: Chez Reavie.

FedEx Cup leader: Webb Simpson.

Last week: Webb Simpson won the RBC Heritage.

Notes: Of the first five tournaments scheduled in the PGA Tour’s return, the Travelers is the only one that kept its original date. … There will be no spectators for the third week in a row. … The top five players in the world are in the field for the third straight week, with one change — Webb Simpson’s victory last week moved him to No. 5 ahead of Dustin Johnson. … Adam Scott (No. 8) is the only one from the top 10 not at TPC River Highlands. … Patrick Cantlay is playing for the first since the restart. Cantlay set the course record with a 60 in 2012 when he was a 20-year-old amateur. Jim Furyk topped that by two shots in 2016 with a 58, the lowest score in PGA Tour history. … Collin Morikawa has made the cut in all 22 starts on the PGA Tour since he turned pro last summer. It’s the longest streak to start a career since Tiger Woods (25) in 1996-97. … Phil Mickelson is the last back-to-back winner of the Travelers (2001-02). Bubba Watson is a three-time champion. Both are in the field this week.

Next week: Rocket Mortgage Classic.
