As the first official weekend of summer gets underway at the 2013 Travelers Championship, an impressive leaderboard and a fine forecast are promising to make this year's event the most memorable ever.

Earlier this week several pro ams... and numerous fan-friendly events... entertained crowds, while funds and awareness were raised for the many charities the championship supports.

I spent Wednesday at TPC River Highlands and, as always, enjoyed the relaxed vibe and pastoral setting that make this tournament unique.  A mini golf tournament and the celebrity pro-am animated the day.

For me personally, the highlight of that day came in the form of a portly, middle-aged Asian woman... wearing a jaunty straw bucket hat.  She stood at the top of the rather steep hill players climb from the 18th green and greeted Angel Cabrera with, "Hey Baby, I watch you all the time and I really like you".  The popular Pato was somewhat winded by the time he got up to where his admirer was standing, but did acknowledge her with a tip of his hat.  It was a pretty awesome scene.

Bubba Watson currently tops the leaderboard with Padraig Harrington two back, I'm looking forward to getting back up to Cromwell on Sunday.
