Defending Champion Steve Stricker is back to try to repeat and claim the winner’s share of the $6.5 million purse. Tiger Woods is taking the week off, but the rest of field is star studded, with Phil Michelson, Anthony Kim, Freddie Couples and K.J. Choi among the PGA’s best scheduled to tee off on Thursday.
The Northern Trust Open gets 500 Fedex Cup points. It’s early, but the current leaders are not household names, for sure:
- Mark Wilson - 1,008
- D. A. Points - 688
- Jhonattan Vegas - 672
- Bubba Watson - 584
Should be a fun week.
