The American Express kicks off this week with one of its best fields in the past several years, despite the fact that it’s not one of the PGA Tour’s new (and lucrative) designated events that’s guaranteed to bring big names. The marquee players are there anyway.

Five of the top seven players in the world are in the field, as well as 10 of the top 19. World No. 2 Scottie Scheffler is the top-ranked player, and Jon Rahm (No. 4), Patrick Cantlay (No. 5), Xander Schauffele (No. 6) and Will Zalatoris (No. 7) are all entered as well.
