During tournament week on Friday, August 5, 2016, the Travelers Championship will hold the Bruce Edwards Foundation Benefit Dinner to raise funds for ALS research. The dinner will be hosted by legendary golfer Tom Watson, award-winning sports columnist John Feinstein, and Travelers Chairman Jay Fishman. A native of Wethersfield, Connecticut, Bruce Edwards was a longtime friend and caddy of Watson and actively worked on the PGA TOUR until a few months before his death from ALS. His career as a caddy, which began at the Travelers Championship when it was played at Wethersfield Country Club, and his relationship with Watson became the subject of a best-selling book, “Caddy for Life,” by Feinstein. After Edwards’ death, Feinstein and Watson founded the Bruce Edwards Foundation in his honor to help find a cure for ALS.
