The 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open this week at TPC Summerlin signals the beginning of a three-week stretch out on the west coast, two of which will be played in Las Vegas. In addition to this week's tournament, next week's CJ Cup at Shadow Creek will precede the Zozo Championship late in October (where Tiger Woods will defend his win from a year ago). Tiger -- who got his first win in Vegas -- will not play this week's event but it still has a star-studded field, including the most recent major championship winner.
Bryson DeChambeau is making his first appearance since winning the U.S. Open at Winged Foot in September.
The top players in the world are starting to return to action in preparation for the pandemic-altered November Masters. While it does not include some of the biggest dogs, it does include nearly half of the top 30 players in the world and big names like Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, Hideki Matsuyama, Collin Morikawa, Matthew Wolff and -- the biggest name of all -- DeChambeau.
