Hoch, who earned back-to-back wins earlier this year at the Allianz Championship and the ACE Group Classic, will be looking to become the first three-time winner on the Champions Tour this season.
Last year, Hoch had 16 birdies and just one bogey to set the tournament scoring record at 15-under 201. The old mark was 11-under 205 by Jay Haas in 2006.
