Patrick Reed pumps his fist to celebrate his one-stroke victory at last year's WGC-Mexico Championship. Reed will defend his title as the tournament moves for 2021 to Bradenton, Fla.

The year’s first World Golf Championship event hits the PGA Tour schedule, arriving in Bradenton, Fla., after being forced to move for 2021 from its usual home in Mexico due to logistical challenges surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.

A strong field is set to play the WGC-Workday Championship, led by World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, Patrick Reed, Rory McIlroy, Viktor Hovland, Sebastian Munoz and Cameron Champ. They'll be competing at The Concession Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus/Tony Jacklin design that commemorates their famous Ryder Cup halve in 1969. The tournament also serves as the start of the PGA Tour's Florida swing.

Bryson DeChambeau trying to solve 'speed' problem at site of 2015 NCAA title

  Bryson DeChambeau trying to solve 'speed' problem at site of 2015 NCAA title At the site of his 2015 NCAA individual title, a very different looking Bryson DeChambeau has something to figure out.The Concussion.

Reed is looking to defend his 2020 title and get his second win of the 2020-21 season. It was three straight final-round birdies on Nos. 15, 16 and 17 at Chapultepec a year ago that allowed him to hold off Bryson DeChambeau.

A secondary storyline to watch for: With a victory, McIlroy would wrap up the “WGC Slam” having won the other three WGC events on the annual calendar (Dell Match Play, FedEx St. Jude and HSBC Champions). Dustin Johnson accomplished this feat back in 2017.

The winner will receive 550 FedEx Cup points and a $1.82 million share of the $10.5 million purse.
