Fifteen of the top 20 in the world golf rankings will head to the Bahamas for the Hero World Challenge in December.
The December 2-5 tournament, a benefit for Tiger Woods' TGR Foundation and other charities, will include 20 players, up from 18 last year.
The field features world No. 3 Collin Morikawa, the reigning Open Championship winner, and No. 18 Hideki Matsuyama of Japan, the reigning Masters champion and the 2016 Hero World Challenge winner. Two other past winners of the event, Jordan Spieth (2014) and Sweden's Henrik Stenson (2019), also will compete.

Woods won the event five times before it moved from Southern California to Albany, Bahamas, in 2015. The tournament was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
