GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut. The course -- it was designed in 1929 and has since been overhauled by Pete Dye, Bobby Weed, Howard Twitty and Roger Maltbie -- will play as 6,841-yard par-70 for the event.

Headlining the field is Rory McIlroy, who's currently ranked No. 3 in the Official World Golf Rankings, Jason Day (No. 4), Jordan Spieth (No. 6) and Justin Thomas (No. 12), who set the all-time major championship scoring record at last week's U.S. Open by shooting nine-under par in one round.

Last year, Russell Knox outlasted a strong final-round charge by Jerry Kelly, who shot 64 on Sunday, to win his second-ever PGA Tour event. It was Jim Furyk who stole the show, however, by shooting a final-round 58, the lowest score in PGA Tour history.

Check out our photos from the 2017 Travelers Championship!

Seems like a stronger field then normal, post-US Open.  I wonder if some of these top tier players had made the cut last week, they'd stay committed to playing?

I think that new tour rule that you have to play in a new tournament (or something like that) contributed to the field.

What's with the tape covering the badges on the Pings in the Tuesday Part 1 photos at top of page?? These something new coming? Appear similar to the 55s.

I think he may have had the elastomer insert in the cavity replaced; because they are definitely S55s, and the tape is likely there to ensure they stay in place while curing.  That is all I can come up with.

Amazing that Zach Johnson still has his AP1 4 iron in his pxg set up.  Looks like ping has plenty of G400 heads for bubba to sort through.

Lets say a player wants to test a certain head and/or shaft but doesn't like the combination, is it theirs to keep or do the manufactures take it back to their equipment truck for another player to try?

Thanks. Makes sense. Looking at the insert there's more red than the original, that's what got my attention!

The red is a a reflection and the that's not the insert that was replaced. There is one in the muscle of the iron.

How low are the scores going to be in this thing? With a 7800 yard Erin Hills getting crushed, how is a 6800 going to hold up? Are there significant OB and hazards, etc?

Scores here can get pretty low.  IIRC, Patrick Cantlay shot a 60 as an am and Furyk shot his 58 here.  But the last 4 or 5 holes or so all have a lake to contend with and there's plenty of places to blow up a round.  I don't remember seeing -20 or something lower very often.

Yeah looks like accuracy is a massive premium on a few holes, which negates a little bit of the length. I already see a few 6 and 7 under today...

I got a chance to follow Rory for a few holes Saturday. Here are some photos of his bag/ clubs. He was using the TP line Saturday, not sure what the model was though. The irons look even better in person IMO. Sorry if the images are all sideways!

I am a fan of the looks of the p770 and p750's.  I have to check for left handed availability.

Lets say a player wants to test a certain head and/or shaft but doesn't like the combination, is it theirs to keep or do the manufactures take it back to their equipment truck for another player to try?

It goes back into a staff bag on the van, someone else will look at it, put it down, ask a question about it, then maybe go try it. Especially Fw's
