TIMOTHY MADIGAN - After making the first two cuts of the season, The Players Cup champion is looking to rebound from a weekend off last week in Cartagena.
HUGO LEON - The Great Waterway Classic champ from 2013 has made two of three cuts this season but is looking for more as the South American swing continues.
MARK SILVERS - The Cape Breton Celtic Classic champion is a Web.com Tour rookie and looks to continue his winning ways on a bigger stage this season.
JOSH PERSONS - The big North Dakotan got his 2014 season started off right with a win at the Bayview Place Island Savings Open presented by Times Colonist, and looks to do the same this week in Brazil.
