It will be exciting to see him alongside many of the game’s other top players Jan. 24-27.”

Other golfers who have committed are Jason Day, Justin Rose, San Diego native Xander Schauffele, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Tony Finau, Rickie Fowler, Patrick Reed, Marc Leishman, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Cantlay, Alex Noren, Gary Woodland and Hideki Matsuyama.

The field is not final until the commitment deadline on Friday at 5 p.m.
