Chez Reavie Win’s The Travelers Championship!



Long time PGA Tour veteran, Chez Reavie, is back in the Winner’s Circle. His last win was back 2008. Heading into Sunday’s round Chez had a 6 shot lead, but history tells us that is not safe at TPC River Highlands. In the last 14 years The winner of the tournament was at least 6 shots back of the leader heading into Sunday’s final round. In the end Reavie was able to hold off Keagan Bradley to bring home the win.

The Stats That Count

In my Travelers Championship preview I predicted that a shorter hitter would have a chance this week since the course isn’t really long. (Click Here to read the article.)Which meant to win it would come down to approach shots and putting. Reavie hit 75% of his greens in regulation and averaged 31.4’ from the hole which ranked him 2nd in the field. Chez hit 83.9% of his fairways (T3) and only averaged 279.2 yards off the tee. He ranked first in shots gained total. Just like most weeks the player that hits a lot of greens will have a ton of birdie opportunities and minimize big numbers. Reavie had 20 birdies and only 3 bogeys.


The Winning Swing

Since Chez is not a long hitter he has to be straight. He does a lot of good things in his swing that anyone can add to help with their consistency. Take a look at the video below as I highlight why Reavie is so consistent and what I would recommend to add more power to his swing.
