Charles Howell III [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #56
Howell has played the Byron Nelson 10 times since 2001 and last year’s T17 marks his personal best. Over the last two weeks he has finished T18 Quail Hollow and missed the cut at TPC Sawgrass.
Pat Perez [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #200
Perez scored a T9 at the Byron Nelson in 2012, but dipped to T75 last season. He has finished outside of the top 40 in his last two starts, but finished T11 and T18 prior to that and hasn’t missed a cut this year.
John Senden [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #53
Following his T8 at the Masters, Senden has finished T29 at TPC Louisiana and T26 last week at TPC Sawgrass. He owns a solo seventh at the Byron Nelson back in 2009, but has missed his last three cuts in the tournament.
Rory Sabbatini [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #163
Sabbatini won this event back in 2009, but has missed two cuts and failed to record a top-40 each of the last four years. Last week’s T38 at TPC Sawgrass ended a streak of four straight inside the top 20.
Brandt Snedeker [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #61
You have to go back to 2007 to find the last time Snedeker played in the Byron Nelson. His T8 at Bayhill back in March gave some optimism that Snedeker was turning his season around. However, despite making all three cuts since, Snedeker has yet to finish inside the top 35.

Hoffman caught fire in the final two rounds in last year’s Byron Nelson debut to finish T5. He has missed a lot of cuts this year, but is coming off a surprise T17 at THE PLAYERS.
