World Number 10 Justin Rose won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans last year, setting a total of 22-under-par
This week the PGA Tour hosts the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana.
Justin Rose took the title last year for his seventh career PGA Tour victory.
His final round six-under-par 66, which included a birdie-birdie finish, was enough to beat Cameron Tringale by one.
Charley Hoffman comes into the tournament looking to become the third back-to-back winner on tour already this season, after Adam Scott and Jason Day.
Hoffman won the Valero Texas Open last week where he birdied the 72nd hole to win by one.
2013 Zurich Classic Champion Billy Horschel comes into the week after as strong T4th finish at TPC San Antonio.
The weather looks sunny for the first three days but there is a thunderstorm predicted for Sunday, with highs of 30 degrees celsius throughout the week.

Jason Day – He has to be top of the list hasn’t he? At the moment if the World Number One plays well, he wins. Day was 54-hole leader at the Zurich Classic last year so TPC Louisiana is a course he scores well on.
Justin Rose – The defending champion is without a victory since the Hong Kong Open back in October so he is due another W. He finished T10th at Augusta in his previous outing so he’s had two weeks of rest and practice. His stunning total of 266 last year was the lowest total since Vijay Singh posted the same number in 2004.
Rickie Fowler – The world number five is making his sixth consecutive start at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans so it’s a course he now has plenty of experience of. Fowler’s had five top tens this season already on tour and won the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship back in January.
