The final PGA Tour event before the The Masters takes place at TPC San Antonio

Given the tournament's proximity to the first Major of the year, it's no surprise that there are some of the world's biggest names in the field, despite it not being one of the PGA Tour's signature events. 

Much of the attention will be on World No.2 Rory McIlroy, who is looking for his first PGA Tour win since last year's Genesis Scottish Open, which was co-sanctioned with the DP World Tour. 

Surely the priority for McIlroy this week, though, will be to ensure he's in the best possible shape heading into his 16th attempt to claim a maiden title at Augusta National

The four-time Major winner is in a strong group in the opening two rounds as he makes his final preparations in his latest bid to complete a career Grand Slam. He plays alongside 2023 Ryder Cup teammate Tommy Fleetwood and a player who was on the opposing Team USA at the Marco Simone match, Rickie Fowler. 

The three get their first round underway at 2.08pm ET (7.08pm BST), with a start of 8.53am ET (1.53pm BST) in the second round. 

Elsewhere, three Major winners are grouped together - The Open champion Brian Harman, 2022 US Open winner Matt Fitzpatrick and Adam Scott, who won The Masters in 2013. The group begins at 9.04am ET (2.04pm BST) on Thursday with a 2.19pm ET (7.19pm BST) start on Friday.

Another group with three Major winners sees 2021 Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama line up alongside Jordan Spieth, who has three Major titles, and 2009 US Open champion Lucas Glover. The three begin at 2.19pm ET (7.19pm BST) on Thursday with a tee time of 9.04am ET (2.04pm BST) on Friday.

Two-time Major winner Collin Morikawa is also playing, and he's been grouped with defending champion Corey Conners and World No.10 Max Homa. The three go out at 8.53am ET (1.53pm BST) in the first round, with a 2.08pm ET (7.08pm BST) tee time in the second round.
