The Power Fade: 2024 Travelers Championship

The Approach to fading big names for the 2024 Travelers championship

What’s going on TJ Nation! Ann Arbor's Own Good Ol' AK Allen Klutts here bringing you another edition of the Power Fade: The Fades 8K and Above You Need to Smash Your DraftKings GPP's!

Coming off the heels of Bryson's historic triumph at Pinehurst, we head up I-95 to Cromwall, CT and The Travelers Championship.

TPC River Highlands provides the players a different test this week, as birdies will be abound. A Par 70, tipping out at just over 6,800 yards, it will be target golf and make some putts as distance is neutralized.

Keegan Bradley looks to defend in his native New England, and this no-cut 68 man field will provide thrills as no one will be truly out of this tournament.

After nailing the Power Fade last week (Hovland: MC, Koepka T-26) we take on our final Signature event of the season. Let us see who will have that post US Open hangover. Bring on the Power Fades!





Tommy Fleetwood ($9,100)

Our first Power Fade of the week is man who many would think is a great course fit this week. Tommy Fleetwood makes a return appearance to the PF at $9,100 on DraftKings.

Why The Fade Works:

Over the course of the 2024 season, Tommy has just seemingly been there every week. What has seemingly derailed him is the same fate Rory McIlroy faces: one bad round.

When you break down the stats on ol' Tommy Lad, he rates out rather mediocre for the field in many categories.

With 12 par 4's on the card and a bridie fest on our hands, Birdie Average will be a key stat. Fleetwood ranks 41st in this category. Unsurprisingly, Tommy ranks rather low in the Key Approach range of 150-175 yards this week (53rd).

Simply put there are also better plays in the low 9K to high 8K range this week. I believe that we have to ride the form of Russell Henley or even a potential low owned defending champ in Keegan Bradley.






Tony Finau ($8,900)

Our second Power Fade of the week comes in fresh off a T-3 at the US Open. Tony Finau makes a return to the PF, with a DraftKings salary of $8,900.

Why The Fade Works:

Looking at the stats on Finau, we can see some warts that may hinder his success around TPC River Highlands.

Finau struggles in the key Par 4 Birdies stat, ranking 48th. Considering his struggles with the flat stick: (39th) it is hard to believe Finau can make enough putts in a putting contest to keep pace.

Course History is also an underrated stat this week. Players either excel or struggle on this short Par 70, and  Finau has not fared well. With 3 MC's and only 1 top 15 finish in seven tries, it is a week to bench Finau and look elsewhere.

That's it folks for this week's edition of the Power Fade! We will be returning to you next week we head to my beloved home state of Michigan. It's Rocket Mortgage week in the Motor City!
