As you likely know, one of the top PGA TOUR stops on the East Coast is back with the Travelers Championship taking place from Aug. 4 to 7 at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. So be sure to tune into Golf Channel and CBS this weekend to catch all the action. As an added bonus, the tournament has provided me with some swag to help spread the word. I have a signed Bubba Watson hat and golf ball and a signed Kevin Streelman pin flag to give away. I'll give prizes to the 50th person (signed hat), 150th (signed golf ball) and 250th (signed pin flag) who can tell me (via email at firstname.lastname@example.org) the name of the NBA player who delivered bottled water to the citizens of Flint, Mich. The answer was in A.M. Clicks. Please make the subject line Travelers Championship.
