The PLAYERS Championship: Field Update

May 04, 2018

The last four qualifiers are Beau Hossler, Tom Hoge, Trey Mullinax and Brandon Harkins, who were selected based on their position in the FedExCup standings through the Zurich Classic in order to complete the field of 144.

If a player wins the Wells Fargo Championship that is not otherwise qualified and/or John Peterson earns enough FedExCup points to equal or exceed 125th place on the FedExCup Points List for the preceding season (237), the last qualifier(s) would become the first alternate(s). Harkins is currently the last man in the field, followed by Mullinax.
