"It's great to be back," Simpson told the media the day before the event. "I love coming here. It's always great weather, as we're going to see again this week, I believe. But I think I love this golf course because it reminds me of the course I grew up playing. You have a lot of options off the tee, and greens are undulating and fast. So I'm just comfortable here, comfortable playing this kind of golf. But I feel good. I've had two weeks off after the Ryder Cup and rested up. Last week I practiced up, and it feels nice to get back at it." Several new fan experiences are also avaiilable this week for PGA TOUR fans including swimming pools and the No Par Bar hosted by Born and Raised.
