There will be a 48-golfer tournament field infield that will include Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson. Newer signings Brooks Koepka, Bryson DeChambeau and Patrick Reed will make their debut in the tournament. The total prize purse will be $25 million with the winner taking home $4 million. This is the second of eight scheduled tournaments for the new organization.
This will be the first tournament held in the United States and there is controversy surrounding the funding of the Saudi Arabia-based organization.
