Larry Bohannan reports on Dustin Johnson's last minute change of heart, entering an improved Humana (RIP Bob Hope Classic) Challenge field.
Johnson becomes the highest-ranked player in the Humana field this year and is joined by Matt Kuchar (11th), Phil Mickelson (15th) and Bill Haas (24th) as players in the field ranked in the top 25 of the world. Johnson is also one of five players (Kuchar, Mickelson, Haas and David Toms) who played for the United States in the Presidents Cup last fall.
Certainly an improved field but considering the effort Humana and Clinton are putting into the inaugural event, I'm a bit disappointed that one or two more elite players couldn't make it to the desert.
And speaking of the effort, I'll be attending Tuesday's intriguing "Health Matters" conference and reporting on the festivities. The lineup was announced this week and elements of the conference will be viewable through a live stream. Viewing/following information:
