After a week of rest and coming off his best performance of the season, Jonathan Byrd will be back on the course at the PGA Tour's Travelers Championship at Cromwell, Conn. this afternoon, paired with former Clemson teammate Lucas Glover for the first two rounds.
Byrd and Glover will tee off at 1:10 p.m. from the No. 1 tee at TPC River Highlands, along with Sean O'Hair.
Also in the field is D.J. Trahan, who'll go off two groups later with Troy Matteson and Fabian Gomez.
Byrd, who is working his way back into form after being sidelined for more than five months because of wrist surgery, tied for 10th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic two weeks ago in Memphis.
