Tournament: Humana Challenge
Date: Jan. 16-19, 2014
Venue: The Club at PGA West & La Quinta Country Club
Location: La Quinta, California
2013 Winner: Brian Gay

An impressive group, including 17 past major winners, heads to California for the Humana Challenge, played over multiple courses in the Coachella Valley. Last year’s tournament saw a shootout in which three players (Brian Gay, Charles Howell III, David Lingmerth) shot 25-under par, resulting in a two-hole playoff where Gay came away the victor.

Golfers to Watch

Webb Simpson (12/1): While Simpson has not been in the top-10 at this tournament since 2009, including a missed cut last year, his recent play warrants him consideration this time around. He has placed in the top-7 in his past four tournaments in 20013-2014, including a win in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open last October and a third-place finish at Kapalua to start the new year.

Zach Johnson (12/1):
Johnson has been the hottest player on tour recently with top-8 finishes over his past three tournaments, including two victories. He has shot 68 or better in 12 of his past 15 rounds, and has the second-highest driving accuracy so far this season (74.1%). In a tournament that is so low scoring, he should really have some great opportunities.

Brian Gay (40/1): Gay was the winner of this event last season and placed in the top-15 in both 2010 and 2011. His recent play has not been the greatest though, placing lower than 30th in four of his past six tournaments, but could be revived in a place where has had success in the past. Gay enters Thursday with a combined minus-18 score in his past six rounds.

Bill Haas (25/1): The 31-year-old Haas is currently ranked 31st in the world while placing in the top-25 in each of his last five tournaments, including all four in the 2014 season. He missed the cut last year at the Humana Challenge, but placed second in 2011 when it was known as the Bob Hope Classic and won the tournament in 2010.

Brian Stuard (50/1): Another 31-year-old, Stuard has two straight top-6 finishes, placing 6th in the Sony Open last week and coming in 2nd in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba back in November. He placed 10th the first time playing this event, which included a 10-under 62 on Saturday (8 birdies, 2 eagles, 2 bogeys), and could ride his recent play to his second career PGA victory this weekend.
