English is coming off a breakout season in which he earned his first PGA Tour win at the FedEx St. Jude Classic last summer, and backed it up with another win at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba at year's end.

Pieters, a native of Belgium, won the 2012 NCAA individual championship at the University of Illinois and has earned status on the European Tour. Erkenbeck was the Mountain West Player of the Year at the University of New Mexico and a member of the victorious U.S. Palmer Cup team. And Seiffert was an All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection at Florida State University as well as the winner of both the 2012 Florida Open and the Florida Amateur.
