Ones to Watch: PGA Pros

Where Dallas - - WHERE NOW -

Lo­cal PGA play­ers com­pet­ing in the back-to-back tour­na­ments in­clude J.J. Henry, Colo­nial mem­ber Ryan Palmer and 2015 By­ron Nel­son Cham­pion Steven Bowditch and of course, 2015 Masters Cham­pion Jor­dan Spi­eth, who tied for se­cond with Brandt Snedeker at the Colo­nial last year. Ranked No. 1 in the world ahead of Spi­eth at No. 2 at the time of pub­li­ca­tion, Ja­son Day has also com­mit­ted to the By­ron.

“All the ex­cite­ment and main en­ergy will be around Jor­dan, and I would definitely go watch him play,” Frazar says, who’s known Spi­eth for sev­eral years. “He’s one of those spe­cial guys who has the ‘it’ fac­tor but he has a lot of poise [that] comes from deep down.” The Colo­nial’s 2015 and 2014 win­ners, Chris Kirk and Adam Scott (who is also ranked among the top 10 in the world), will also re­turn to Fort Worth.
