JUNO BEACH, Fla. – There are no Official World Golf Ranking points, no FedEx Cup points, no official earnings, but the Seminole Golf Club Member-Pro may be the deepest field of 2014.

For the first time this calendar, all four major champions from 2013 are playing the same event – complete with all four Grand Slam trophies on display adjacent the first tee – as well as former major champions Ernie Els, Lucas Glover, Davis Love III and Arnold Palmer.

Making the 18-hole shootout even more compelling this year is a complete absence of wind, normally a staple on the south Florida gem, as the early groups set out.

“It’s always a scramble to get an early tee time,” smiled Love, who was in the day’s sixth group off.

Rory McIlroy, who lost a playoff on Sunday at the Honda Classic, was also one of the early starters, but not before an extended session on the Seminole practice tee.
