He has missed eight of his last nine cuts on the PGA Tour. … Sixteen players in the field already have secured their spots in the Masters. … The tournament is held on two courses to allow for more playing opportunities. The 156-man field is the largest for the fall. … Robert Streb’s only two PGA Tour victories are at Sea Island, six years apart. … Scottie Scheffler is playing. He has tied for second and finished fourth the last two weeks as he tries to win for the first time on the PGA Tour.
