Nutmeg Sports, HAN’s Connecticut sport show, airs Monday-Thursday at 2 pm on HAN.Network, hosted by Frank Granito, Kevin Coleman and various HAN sports editors.
On the Monday, June 26, episode of Nutmeg Sports hosts Frank Granito and Kevin Coleman wrap up this past weekend’s PGA tournament, the Travelers Championship, from Cromwell at TPC River Highlands. No. 3 ranked golfer in the world Jordan Spieth defeated No. 18 Daniel Berger on the first playoff hole with a chip in birdie.
Competing in the Travelers Championship for the first time in his career, per a PGA rule change, Jordan Spieth took in all that Cromwell had to offer on his way to a winning score of 268 (-12). After saving par from a greenside bunker on the 72nd hole of the tournament to force a playoff with Daniel Berger, Spieth found himself right back in the same bunker on the first playoff hole and was able to hole his sand shot to win the tournament. The championship represents the 10th title of Spieth’s career at only 23 years of age. He became the 2nd youngest player to reach 10 victories behind only Tiger Woods. Frank, Kevin and director Mike Suppe debate where Spieth ranks at this moment in his career and where the sport of golf is at as a whole.
Frank and Kevin also take a look at Hearst Media’s all star basketball roster from this past season which features players from five different FCIAC schools. Plus a nationally ranked Ridgefield varsity swimmer with a college announcement.
