Hughes to retire next week

Henry Hughes, the chief operating officer for the PGA Tour players, retires on July 1. The Travelers paid tribute to Hughes, 62, during a brief ceremony on the first tee Wednesday for his years of service and dedication to the tour and the Travelers itself when it was known as the Sammy Davis Jr. Greater Hartford Open.
In 1975, Hughes became the chairman of the event when it was played at Wethersfield Country Club. Hughes went to work for the tour in 1984, holding a variety of positions, including his current one, which he has held since 1999.
