Nearly 5,000 players from around the world compete for a spot in the championship. Only 264 players will advance to the starting field, with one emerging as a Champion, winning the coveted Robert T. Jones Jr. Memorial Trophy.

64 players will tee it up for two qualifying spots and two alternate positions Monday at Kokopelli.
