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 90 and I lked down at the phone and said, This is either going to be a really gd 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 tk 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 gd 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 Hk Elementary Schl, Grube and Bessette said. The tournament will provide golf lessons in the towns elementary schls 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. kiestore.com/Packers-Dave-Robinson-Jersey/" target="_blank">Dave Robinson Youth Jersey .

INDIANAPOLIS -- Scott Tolzien and Stephen Morris see every play as an opportunity.So when they trot out Thursday night at Cincinnati, the Indianapolis Colts backup quarterbacks know this game matters.Youre always trying to be sharp, Tolzien said. The way I lk at it, its another opportunity to go play in a ftball game.On this team, those chances usually have been rare.From 1998 through 2010, Peyton Manning started every meaningful game the Colts played. Then after drafting Andrew Luck with the top overall pick in 2012, Indy plugged the rkie into the starting lineup and he started every meaningful game for the next three-plus seasons.Fortunately for the Colts, when Luck went down last season, they had a capable backup in 40-year-old Matt Hasselbeck.But when Hasselbeck announced his retirement during the offseason, it didnt take the Colts long to sign Tolzien. He spent the previous three seasons backing up Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay, and they still had Morris, a developmental quarterback who finished last season on the Colts roster.Now, with the preseason winding down, the Colts will likely follow their traditional tack by giving most of their starters an extra night off to get healthy for the regular-season opener, Sept. 11 against Detroit.With so many injuries already, who can blame them?Besides, Tolzien and Morris cherish getting some extra work.Its being consistent, making plays, getting the ball out quicker, being decisive with my feet, Morris said, rattling off this weeks goals. You have to make sure youre in the bks and preaching the right things.This time, though, the two quarterbacks could be vying for one open spot.Tolzien is listed at No. 2 on Indys depth chart with Morris on the No. 3 line.While coach Chuck Pagano has repeatedly brushed aside any discussion of a challenge to Tolzien, Morris has shown promise in his limited playing time and in a normal season might get one of the precious 53 roster spots.Its not so clear now.With the possibility of 10 or more injured players taking spots on the 553-man active roster, Pagano acknowledged Monday that trimming the roster from 75 to 53 might be tricky.dddddddddddd Things could get even more complicated when they fill out the 10-player practice squad because the Colts may need all 10 active for Week 1.Morris said Tuesday he has no idea if the Colts plan to keep two or three quarterbacks, though they have usually had only two during the Manning and Luck eras.Either way, Morris is eager to give it his best shot.Its exciting, he said. Its a great opportunity to put something gd on film. Any time youre on the field, you want to put gd film on.Tolzien also can use the work.A year ago, he threw only one pass -- a 4-yard completion at Arizona in Week 16. The only other regular-season action for the six-year veteran came in 2013, when Rodgers was injured. He played in three games that season, started two and finished 55 of 90 for 717 yards with one touchdown and five interceptions.Hell probably make his second preseason start Thursday and he wants to make the most of it.It is crunch time, but were going to play to win, he said. You play your best when youre prepared and youre comfortable.Game notes Indianapolis got under the 75-player limit Tuesday by waiving linebacker Anthony Sarao and cornerback Darius White and putting safety Dezmen Southward on injured reserve. ... Indy then re-signed safety Alden Darby, who was released Sunday. ... Left tackle Anthony Castonzo did not practice Tuesday because of a strained triceps. Pagano said he expected Castonzo to return to practice Wednesday. Tight end Dwayne Allen also sat out for the second straight day with a sore hip. ... Dont expect cornerback Antonio Cromartie to play against the Bengals. Hes in shape, Pagano said. But theres a difference between L.A. Fitness shape and ftball shape, right?---Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
