t the tournament and PGA plan to run in Newtown, Conn., site of the December massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Grube Antworten

CROMWELL, Conn. - U.S. Open champion Justin Rose has no plans to take any time off after winning his first major championship. Nathan Grube, the tournament director at the Travelers Championship, said Roses wife, Kate, called shortly after he won his first major title, to confirm they would be in Connecticut for this weeks tournament. "She called last night at about 9:30 and I looked down at the phone and said, This is either going to be a really good call or a really bad call," Grube said Monday. "It was fine. She said, Were coming, were just trying to rearrange our schedule a little bit because of all the media (commitments)." The Travelers held its opening ceremony on Monday morning, marking the 61st straight year the PGA Tour has visited greater Hartford and the seventh under its current name. Andy Bessette, the chief administrative officer and executive vice-president of the insurance giant, said the company is in negotiations to remain the title sponsor of the Connecticut PGA stop, and expects to finalize a deal before this summer. "As long they want us, were going to figure out how to make this work, and get this done before September 30th," Bessette said. The company took over the title sponsorship in 2006, after the tournament had been eliminated from the 2007 PGA schedule because of a lack of a sponsor. The TPC River Highlands was set to become a Champions Tour stop, when another tournament dropped out of the PGA schedule, opening a window for Hartford. Travelers agreed to help get the event back in the PGA mix, and Bessette said it turned out to be a great move for the company and the region. "Were only one of five community-based sponsors on the Tour, five out of 45," he said. "So to be a hometown sponsor and do good for the community, give back to charity, its critical." Travellers also has committed to fund a special program that the tournament and PGA plan to run in Newtown, Conn., site of the December massacre at the Sandy Hook Elementary School, Grube and Bessette said. The tournament will provide golf lessons in the towns elementary schools and through summer camps as part of the First Tee program, a youth development organization designed to teach values such as honesty and integrity through the sport. "There were a lot of ideas on the table," Grube said. "This was something the town told us would help in healing process. Were doing some other things, but the town has asked that we keep those off the radar." The golf tournament begins Wednesday with the annual pro-am, and a new twist this year, a celebrity mini-golf pro-am. Actors Alec Baldwin and CJ Adams, former UConn basketball players and WWE stars are among those scheduled to participate.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Wake Forest turned its program around and earned a bowl berth. Boston College wants to do the same thing by beating the Demon Deacons.The Eagles are trying to join Wake Forest as lower-level ACC Atlantic Division teams to qualify for the postseason when they play Saturday in the regular season finale.There is a lot of young football here to mature. Thats the beauty of bowl season. Youre dying for that, right? BC coach Steve Addazio said. Its kind of a marker, you know, going to a bowl. Its a goal you set in the beginning of the year. Its one thats still alive, and its a marker ... for success, and then its a marker for growth and development.That the Eagles (5-6, 1-6 Atlantic Coast Conference) are even in the bowl conversation at all is surprising because theyve been the ACCs worst team for the past two years, having won only one ACC game since 2014 -- a 21-14 victory last month at North Carolina State.It could be argued they inherited that mantle from Wake Forest (6-5, 3-4), which went 3-9 in both 2014 and 15 with one ACC victory in each season. The Demon Deacons lone league win last year came 3-0 at BC after they turned the ball over inside their own 1-yard line in the final minute but the Eagles then blew a chance to score.These games have always been very physical games and Im sure this one will be the same, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. We have a lot to play for. We are trying to secure a winning season and BC is trying to become bowl eligible. I think both teamms have a lot at stake.dddddddddddd--Some things to know about the BC-Wake Forest game:BCS Defense: The strength of the Boston College team once again is its defense, which ranks second in the ACC in yards allowed (312.7 ypg) and is coming off a 30-0 rout of Connecticut in which it held the Huskies to minus-6 yards rushing. In sweeping four nonconference opponents, the Eagles allowed them a total of 20 points.FAMILY MATTER: A pair of Wolford brothers will be on opposite sidelines -- Bobby Wolford is a fullback for the Eagles while John Wolford is expected to start at quarterback for Wake Forest. John Wolford missed the loss to Clemson with what team officials said was an ankle injury.SENIOR SENDOFF: Wake Forest is saying goodbye to a class of 13 seniors that were part of sub-.500 seasons in each of their first three years in the program. The biggest names in the group are DB Ryan Janvion and LB Marquel Lee. This group means a lot to me, Clawson said. This is the class our staff didnt recruit, but they bought in. Without them, we are not going to a bowl.NO O: Offense has been a struggle for both teams. Among ACC teams, Wake Forest and BC hold the bottom two spots in total offense and scoring offense, and if not for last-place Georgia Tech, would be at the bottom in passing offense.---More AP college football: and .
