The 25-year-old has won three times on the PGA Tour this year with wins in the Phoenix Open, Arnold Palmer Invitational and WGC Matchplay all to his name in 2022. He will be hoping to come out on top of a field packed with household names, hopefully including Tiger Woods who would play in his first tournament since a car crash in 2021.
The field will be competing for a prize fund of just over $2 million and with the famous Green Jacket on offer it is set to be a thrilling start to a year of majors. British and Irish contenders will once again be headed up by world number nine Rory McIlroy, who despite recent major heartache, remains a contender having played consistently well on the PGA Tour in recent years.
He will be joined by Tommy Fleetwood of Southport, Lee Westwood, Paul Casey, Robert MacIntyre, Tyrell Hatton, Shane Lowry, Justin Rose and 2016 Champion Danny Willett.
