The always popular Franklin Templeton Shootout, which will feature 24 of the game's best players, gets under way on Friday at Tiburon Golf Club in Naples.
The first round will be played with a modified alternate-shot format while the second round is contested as best ball and the final round is a scramble.
Scott Stallings, who won The Greenbrier Classic earlier this year, was the last man in the field after J.B. Holmes had to withdraw earlier this week. The Shootout was to be Holmes' competitive debut after he had surgery in September to correct a Chiari malformation of his brain.
"While I continue to make great strides in my recovery ... I am not 100 percent and I think it would be a disservice to my partner, Kenny Perry, and the entire Franklin Templeton Shootout organization for me to play at less than full capacity," Holmes said.
Stallings, who is making his Shootout debut, will now play with Perry. Here are the first-round pairings.
