Travelers Championship: Scottie Scheffler wins play-off for sixth victory in 2024

World number one Scottie Scheffler won a play-off at the Travelers Championship and secured his sixth PGA Tour victory of the season.

The conclusion of the final round was interrupted when a group of protesters ran onto the 18th green while the last group was reading their putts.

When play resumed, Scheffler narrowly missed a birdie putt that would have secured victory before South Korean Tom Kim converted his birdie attempt and forced a two-man playoff.

Scheffler won on the first extra hole at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, becoming the first player since Arnold Palmer in 1962 to win six times before July.

“This is something very special,” said Scheffler. “It was a great season, I was lucky to get some wins and it was a lot of fun.”

“Tom gave it his all today. He’s a great player, a great champion and it was fun to compete against him today.”

Scheffler and Kim finished tied at 22 under par after finishing rounds of 65 and 66, respectively.

The pair returned to the 18th for the first extra hole, and Scheffler made a par while Kim was unable to get up and putt from a blocked shot in a greenside bunker.
