GolfWRX is live from the 2017 Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas. The famed course — it’s nicknamed “Hogan’s Alley” after Ben Hogan’s history and success there — will play as a par-70 measuring 7,209 yards for the event.
Defending champion and local-Texan Jordan Spieth, who’s currently ranked No. 7 in the Official World Golf Rankings, headlines a field that also includes 2017 Masters Champion Sergio Garcia and 2017 Players Champion Si Woo Kim. Other notables in the field are Wesley Bryan, Tony Finau, last week’s champion Billy Horschel, Kevin Kisner, Matt Kuchar, Graeme McDowell, Phil Mickelson, Pat Perez, and long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski, who was awarded a sponsor’s exemption this week.
Last year, Spieth shot a final-round 65 to win by three strokes over Harris English, and with the victory, he recorded his first PGA Tour victory in his home state. Spieth, who’s fallen in the world rankings since then, is coming off back-to-back missed cuts ahead of his title defense.
