SEASON IN REVIEW: Garrigus was all smiles on Sunday at Crooked Stick where he played his way into the top 30 in the FedExCup standings. He shot all four rounds in the 60s and tied for fourth, which enabled him to move from No. 31 to 20th and earn his first start at East Lake. Garrigus had three runner-up finishes in 2012. -- Helen Ross

EAST LAKE HISTORY: Garrigus is making his first start at East Lake.

ALBERS’ QUICK TAKE: Fred Albers, on-course correspondent for SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio, provides a quick look at Garrigus:
He is scary long and has another putter change. We have seen Robert with a short putter, a long putter and now the "tweener." Probably should have won the RBC Canadian Open. Has worked hard on physical conditioning this year. A very approachable, likeable and talented player.
