20. Chez Reavie (+5000)

19. J.T. Poston (+6600)
The 2019 champ missed three straight cuts before a T-30 finish at the WGC and a T-75 last week. No one who made the cut last week did worse than Poston’s 0.59 strokes lost on approach per round.
18. Shane Lowry (+4500)
Lowry will need to be much better around the greens this week, but it’s usually a slight strength of his game. He finished seventh here in 2017 before a missed cut last year.
17. Si Woo Kim (+4000)
Won this event in 2016 but missed the cut in 2018 before a fifth-place finish last year. Tied for 13th last week with 2.18 SG: Tee-to-Green per round.

14. Brooks Koepka (+1000)
Playing here for the first time since a sixth-place finish in 2015. He should make it to The Northern Trust while entering the week 92nd in the FedExCup standings, but he’ll need a good showing in the next two weeks to qualify for the BMW Championship.
13. Joaquin Niemann (+6600)
The first winner of the 2019-20 PGA Tour season at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier enters the week 25th in the FEC standings. Finished 13th in this event last year with 1.38 SG: Putting per round.
12. Sergio Garcia (NA – late entry)
The 2012 champ was a late entry Friday afternoon after missing the cut in San Francisco, California. He’s 134th in the FEC standings and seems motivated to continue his season.
11. Corey Conners (+5000)
Tied for 22nd in this event last year with 1.29 SG: Off-the-Tee per round. Missed the cut last week with a horrendous putting performance but had been showing well in strong fields with a T-22 at the Memorial and a T-30 at the WGC.

9. Brandt Snedeker (+5000)

8. Brendon Todd (+3500)
Todd missed the cut in his two appearances here, but the two-time 2019-20 winner is coming off a T-17 at the PGA Championship and a T-15 at the WGC and should be able to finish better in a weaker field.
7. Harris English (+2500)
Has finished in the top 20 in four straight events. Averaging 1.07 SG: Tee-to-Green for the season. The top-ranked player in the field by the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings.
