John Daly returns to Sioux Falls and the Sanford International for the second year. Daly, who grew up in Arkansas, won the 1991 PGA Championship in his rookie season on the PGA TOUR. Four years later, Daly won his second major championship, defeating Costantino Rocca in a playoff to capture The Open Championship at the Old Course at St. Andrews. A fan favorite since turning professional, Daly has 20 professional wins during his career, including a victory on the PGA TOUR Champions at the Insperity Invitational in 2017.

Singh, a native of Lautoka, Fiji, won three major titles in his career, including the 1998 PGA Championship, 2000 Masters and 2004 PGA Championship. Singh turned professional in 1982 and joined the PGA TOUR in 1993. He has won 59 professional tournaments, including 34 on the PGA TOUR. In 2004, Vijay became the No. 1 golfer in the world, a position he held for 32 weeks. Singh ranks third on the all-time PGA TOUR money list, winning more than $71 million in his career.

Lehman, who grew up in Alexandria, Minnesota, played collegiately in his home state for the Gophers. The former No. 1-ranked player in the world won The Open Championship in 1996. That year Lehman also won PGA TOUR Player of the Year. Since joining the TOUR Champions in 2009, he has 12 victories including three major titles.
