--Jason Day returns to the event after withdrawing after 54 holes last year due to a neck injury.

BEST BETS
--Dustin Johnson (+1000 at DraftKings) is making his season debut and is the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 2. He's coming off a perfect 5-0-0 record at the Ryder Cup, but is not among the top-10 most popular bets at DraftKings this week.
--Justin Thomas (+1200) is a two-time winner of the event when it was played in South Korea.
--Collin Morikawa (+1600) is a member of The Summit Club, where he has shot a 62. He has recovered from a back injury and went 3-0-1 at the Ryder Cup. Morikawa has been backed by 10 percent of the bets and 20 percent of the handle at DraftKings, more than four times more than any other player in the field.
--Viktor Hovland (+2500) is second only to Morikawa with 4 percent of the money at DraftKings backing the young Norwegian this week.
--Shane Lowry (+2800) played well at the Ryder Cup before finishing T4 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship at St. Andrews.
--Im (+3000) is coming off his second career PGA Tour victory and is a CJ brand ambassador.
--Maverick McNealy (+5500) is also a member at Summit, where Morikawa said he has carded a 61. McNealy has yet to win on tour but has been backed by 3 percent of the total bets and money at DraftKings.
