Former UConn golfer, Farmington native Zach Zaback qualifies for Travelers Championship

(WTNH)–Monday was a big day for UConn graduate Zach Zabak. The former Huskies golfer qualified for the Travelers Championship, after shooting a five-under 67 at the tournament qualifier at Ellington Ridge Country Club.

The 23-year-old is now into the main field, which begins on Thursday. Zaback joins Tom Hoge, Brett Wetterich, 2003 Masters runner-up Len Mattice, and four-time PGA Tour event winner Heath Slocum as qualifiers.

Last year Zabak, who’s from Farmington and now lives in Cromwell, put up a 67 in the qualifier but wastched as six other golfers did the same. He was eliminated in a playoff.

He won the state amateur title last year, even knocking in a double eagle on a 332-yard par-4 at Wethersfield Country Club. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
