The world No. 2 and former Arizona State star has three wins this season, but hasn't played in a full-field event since the TOUR Championship. He will be joined this week by names like John Daly, Aaron Baddeley, Stewart Cink, Arron Oberholser and Justin Leonard.
This inaugural event marks the second time the PGA TOUR will play in Scottsdale this season. Baddeley won the FBR Open in February by capitalizing on a late collapse by Jeff Quinney at the TPC of Scottsdale. Both players live in the same nearby community, and both will be in the field this week.
The GOLF CHANNEL will have coverage off all four rounds this weekend. Next week is the Ginn sur Mer Classic at Tesoro, another new event on the schedule.
