PGA Golf Playing Field for the 2016 Franklin Templeton Shootout

The 2016 Franklin Templeton Shootout golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from December 8-10, 2016, at the Tiburon Golf Club located in Naples, Florida. Here is a list of the playing field of PGA golfers at the 2016 Franklin Templeton Shootout.

The Franklin Templeton Shootout features 12 teams of two players each competing over three days using scramble play in the opening round, followed by modified alternate shot on day two and better ball play on day three. The Franklin Templeton Shootout has a big twist this year as female LPGA golf star Lexi Thompson is among the 24 players who will compete. Lexi Thompson will be teamed with PGA rookie Bryson DeChambeau for the event.

Also in the playing field are top ranked golfers Kevin Chappell and Kevin Kisner, who are playing together, along with Russell Knox (teamed with Luke Donald), Justin Thomas (teamed with Smylie Kaufman), Matt Kuchar (teamed with Harris English), Brandt Snedeker (teamed with Jason Dufner), Daniel Berger (teamed with K.J. Choi) and Gary Woodland (teamed with Davis Love III). All players not in parenthesis are ranked in the top 50 in the world.

Filling out the playing field for the 2016 Franklin Templeton Shootout are the teams of Sean O'Hair and Kenny Perry, Charles Howell III and Rory Sabbatini, Charley Hoffman and Billy Horschel and the team of Jerry Kelly and Steve Stricker. Just about every player in the field is ranked in the top 100 in the World Golf Rankings. 

Lexi Thompson is ranked #5 among women players and it's really her presence this week that makes the 2016 Franklin Templeton Shootout a very watchable golf event.
