Peter Malnati, Zach Johnson and Harris English: 9:30 a.m. Thursday (No. 10 tee)
Malnati won his first Tour title in a Monday finish at the Sanderson Farms Open, played opposite the WGC-HSBC Champions, last week. Johnson, the reigning champion golfer of the year, is making his first start of the 2016 season at an event he helped launch alongside Davis Love III in 2010. English's best finish at this event was a T-15 in 2012.
Davis Love III, Dru Love, and Justin Thomas: 10:30 a.m. Thursday (No. 1 tee)
Davis, the tournament chairman and Ryder Cup captain, will play with his son Dru, who is making his first PGA Tour start on a sponsor exemption. Dru plays his college golf at Alabama and earned the invite after beating three other players - Cory Whitsett, Josh Teater and Drew Weaver - in a pre-tournament qualifier. The Loves will play with Thomas, who - after a number of close calls as a rookie - broke through for his first Tour win earlier this month in Malaysia.
McDowell and Kaufman are both winners this season, while Haas finished runner-up at the inaugural edition in 2010.
