20. Lee Westwood (+8000)
The veteran Englishman has been off since a 63rd-place finish at the RBC Heritage capped a four-event stretch which included missed cuts at The Honda Classic and the Masters. He previously had back-to-back runner-up finishes at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship to climb as high as No. 19 in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR).
19. James Hahn (+12500)
Few in this week’s field have the experience of Hahn at TPC Craig Ranch. He finished as the runner-up at the 2012 Web.com Tour Championship played here. His victory at the 2016 Wells Fargo Championship was at a similarly long course (Quail Hollow Club).
18. Keith Mitchell (+8000)
Mitchell remains a quality value play coming off a T-3 finish at last week’s Wells Fargo Championship. He was second in the field with 1.85 Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee per round and will need to rely on that same part of his game this week.
17. Cameron Champ (+8000)
Sixth on the PGA Tour among qualified golfers and fourth in this field in SG: Off-the-Tee through 32 measured rounds this season. His putting has been awful, but the new venue should help level the field on the greens.
16. Luke List (+7000)
Tied for sixth last week with 1.33 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.77 SG: Tee-to-Green per round. He tied for 13th at the 2012 Web.com Tour Championship.

14. Sam Burns (+3500)
Returns to play after a week off following his first career PGA Tour victory at the Valspar Championship. It’s another venue that
