The list begins with last year’s winner, Max Homa, who took advantage of Maverick McNealy in the previous tournament. But McNealy is also back this year to show his fans that his skills are still amazing. However, some of the best players in the world have decided not to participate in this one to prepare for other events. But there are still some incredible golfers participating.
