What Jay S. Fishman said in an interview in 2014 amid all the glitter of Travelers extending its title sponsorship of the Travelers Championship for 10 more years won't soon be forgotten.
"When we started with the tournament, we didn't want this to be a Hartford sports story that didn't work out," Fishman said. "We're in it for the long haul. We're giving it everything we have to make it great."
That has been the case since Travelers got involved with the tournament, a mainstay on the PGA Tour and the state's largest annual sporting event, in 2007. Fishman made sure of that, and the lengthy extension was an emphatic statement.
