Notes: Brooks Koepka at No. 3 is the only player from the top 10 in the world in the field. Koepka, who defends his PGA Championship title next week, prefers to play the week before a major. ... Jordan Spieth, who grew up in Dallas, tied for 16th in 2010 as a 16-year-old on a sponsor exemption. That remains his best finish at his hometown tournament. ... Retired Dallas Cowboys quarterback and CBS football analyst Tony Romo received a sponsor's exemption. He missed the cut in his two previous PGA Tour events, both in the Dominican Republic. ... The field features 12 of the top 50 players in the world, but only two from the top 20 - Koepka and Patrick Reed. ... Lucas Bjerregaard and Thorbjorn Olesen of Denmark and Justin Harding of South Africa received exemptions. All three are in the PGA Championship field next week. ...

Notes: The first major of the PGA Tour Champions schedule dates to 1989 and spent 14 years in Arizona and eight years in Oregon before moving to Alabama in 2011. ... Jack Nicklaus is a four-time winner of the Tradition. ... An American has not won the event since Jeff Maggert in 2015. ... This is the first of consecutive majors on the Champions schedule, with the Senior PGA in two weeks. ... Senior PGA champion Paul Broadhurst is not in the PGA Championship next week because of the move to May. He played in the PGA last August in St. Louis, and the PGA of America did not think he should play in two PGAs. ... This is the only Champions major where the winner does not earn a spot in a corresponding event on the PGA Tour.
