The Zurich Classic of New Orleans picked up four commitments from players who finished in the top 25 at the Masters on Sunday.
The group is headed by J.B. Holmes, who tied for fourth in the first major of the season. Holmes, who came in 21st in the latest world rankings, finished in a tie with Paul Casey, who committed to the Zurich Classic last week.
Joining Holmes in the field are Danny Lee (who tied for 17th Sunday), Jamie Donaldson (T-21) and Angel Cabrera (T-24).
The additions of Holmes and Lee to the 156-man field for the April 28-May 1 tournament at TPC Louisiana give the Zurich Classic eight of the top 40 golfers in the updated rankings. Lee is 38th.
Holmes has won four times on the PGA Tour, while Lee won his first Tour event last July at the Greenbrier Classic.
Donaldson, who is from Wales, had six international wins before joining the PGA Tour in 2014. Cabrera has 39 international victories and has won two majors: the 2007 U.S. Open and 2009 Masters.
So far, 13 participants in this year’s Masters have committed to the Zurich Classic. The list (in order of world ranking): Day, Fowler, Rose, Branden Grace, Holmes, Casey, Byeong-Hun An, Lee, Billy Horschel, Smylie Kaufman, Donaldson, Jason Dufner and Cabrera.
Rose is the defending champion of the Zurich Classic. Horschel won in 2013, and Dufner prevailed in 2012.
