With the Masters in the rearview mirror, it's natural to look ahead to the U.S. Open or Players Championship, but the most intriguing tournament in the upcoming schedule is the Zurich Classic and its new team format.

And the field is getting even better.

That event received an entry from a heavy-hitting Texan duo today: Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer. The announcement was made public on the tournament’s social media accounts Friday morning. Spieth and Palmer join the likes of Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day, and Brooks and Chase Koepka, among others. The Zurich now includes four of the top six players in the world ranking.
