Viktor Hovland, Matthew Wolff turn pro at Travelers Championship 

The week after the U.S. Open can be a difficult spot in the schedule, with many players opting for rest rather than competition in the week following the national championship. It also has its upside, however, as many top amateurs eschew pay-for-play until after competing in the U.S. Open, embarking on their professional career the week after. At the Travelers Championship, that has led to the professional debut and equipment-deal signing of two of the game’s top amateurs, Matthew Wolff and Viktor Hovland at TPC River Highlands. Hovland, the low amateur at Pebble Beach last week, signed a multi-year deal with Ping to play a minimum of 11 clubs, including driver and putter, along with a Ping staff bag and logo on the hat. The top-ranked amateur was a standout at Oklahoma State where he was a three-time All-American. He also won the 2018 U.S. Amateur at Pebble Beach, earning an invitation to the year’s Masters where he also was low amateur. Hovland also won the Ben Hogan Award as the top men’s collegiate player while taking into account all amateur competition in the previous 12 months.
