The Franklin Templeton Shootout will be receiving some girl power this year.
Tournament officials announced Monday that Lexi Thompson will be among the 24-person field at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples, Fla., which will be hosting the unofficial PGA Tour event for the 16th consecutive year.
Thompson is ranked No. 4 in the latest Rolex Rankings and has won seven times on the LPGA, most recently the Honda LPGA Thailand in February. She also represented the U.S. at the Olympics, where she finished T-19.
Brandt Snedeker and Jason Dufner will return to defend the title they won last year over Matt Kuchar and Harris English, who will also make a repeat appearance. Other former champs expected to participate include Davis Love III, Steve Stricker, Jerry Kelly, Kenny Perry and Sean O'Hair.
Played annually since 1989, the Franklin Templeton Shootout will be held Dec. 8-10 and features scramble play during the opening round, followed by modified alternate shot and better ball.
