Golf - River Highlands Championship

This is one of the best attended events on the PGA Tour, attracting almost 250,000 people each June to the TPC at River HIghlands near Hartford, Connecticut, Usa. Its original name was the Insurance City Open but in 1967 it took on the title of the Greater Hartford Open through to 2003. From 1973 to 1988 the name of the entertainer Samy Davis Junior was incorporated into the title. It became a sponsored Championship in 2004. Until 1983 it was staged at the Wetherfield Country Club in Hartford, before moving to the new TPC course, which was renamed River Highlands in 1991.
