Update: Chase Koepka withdraws due to COVID-19 concerns.

Two Koepkas will be in the field this week for the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands.

Chase Koepka, the younger brother of Brooks, fired a 5-under 67 in the Monday Qualifier, and then made it through a playoff, to secure one of the two spots up for grabs at Ellington Ridge Country Club in Ellington, Connecticut.

It will mark the third start of the 2020 season for the younger Koepka, who received a sponsor’s exemption for both the Shriners Open (T67) in Las Vegas and the CJ Cup (T46) in South Korea during the wrap-around portion of the season.

Brooks, meanwhile, will enter off a solo seventh-place finish at last week’s RBC Heritage. It was the best result of the season for the four-time major winner.

David Pastore was the other Monday qualifier.
