Tournament Storylines

Armstrong, Hogan, Farnsworth compete against nation’s top junior golfers
Dawson Armstrong and Garrison Hogan of Brentwood, Tennessee, and Alexandra Farnsworth of Nashville, Tennessee, will represent the local community as the trio competes in the prestigious Invitational for the first time.
Championship history
As the longest-running tournament on the AJGA schedule, it’s no surprise to find some of golf’s biggest names on the list of past champions. Former champions have gone on to succeed not only at the amateur and collegiate levels but at the professional level as well. Notable alumni who have competed in the Rolex Tournament of Champions include Tiger Woods, Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson, Jim Furyk, Paula Creamer, 2004 champion Morgan Pressel, 2003 champion Inbee Park, 2001 champion Webb Simpson and three-time victor Phil Mickelson.
Collegiate success
Former winners have also gone on to receive collegiate All-America nods, All-Conference accolades and National Championships, including Jamie Lovemark, Heather Bowie and Charles Howell II. Currently, UCLA freshman and 2013 champion Alison Lee is the top-ranked collegiate player in the nation after a first-year campaign which included three individual wins. A staple for college recruiting, 51 colleges and universities were represented at the 2013 event. The 2014 field features 93 players who have made college commitments.
USGA-AJGA Presidents' Leadership Award
Dree Fausnaugh of Maitland, Florida, and John Hayden of Birmingham, Alabama, will compete on an exemption after being named recipients of the 2014 USGA-AJGA Presidents' Leadership Award. Fausnaugh and Hayden will be honored and formally presented with their awards during the Rolex Dinner of Champions on Wednesday, June 25.
Playing for the Wyndham Cup
The final spots on the Wyndham Cup roster will be awarded to the boy and girl with the best Polo Golf Ranking as of June 30, 2014, who were not already eligible and who participated in the 2014 Rolex Tournament of Champions.
