Plenty of big names will be scrapping it out when the WGC Bridgestone Invitational gets underway at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio this Friday (August 2, local time).
Australia has a good record in this event. Last year, Adam Scott claimed a dominating victory by finishing a full four strokes ahead of runner-ups Luke Donald and Rickie Fowler.
For Scott, the objective will be putting that infamous Open Championship meltdown out of his mind and continuing what has been a solid season so far.
He'll have some serious competition however, as seven-time Bridgestone winner Tiger Woods and FedEx Cup second ranked Zach Johnson will both be in the hunt.
Bubba Watson, Rickie Fowler and Lee Westwood also feature in a field that promises plenty of scintillating putting and powerful driving.
Perhaps the most dangerous man on the course however will be 30-year-old Hunter Mahan, who won here in 2010. Mahan started his year with a bang, winning the WGC Accenture Match Play Championship in February and the Shell Houston Open in April.
Since then he's been solid if not spectacular, a couple of top 20 finishes with his best result being an eighth in the AT&T National. Could Bridgestone be his chance to climb back to the top of the mountain?
Many are arguing that Rory McIlroy has failed to deliver this year, having missed three cuts in his last five PGA Tour events, including a disappointing 60th in the Open Championship.
A player of McIlroy's calibre is hard to keep down however, and at a pre-match press conference the 23-year-old said he was looking forward to a busy few weeks of golf.
"Love this event; it's one of the, I think it's one of the best events we play all year and definitely one of the best courses. Yeah, I think I had a ninth and sixth in the last couple of years so you know, I come in here with a couple of good finishes behind me and I feel like I'm hitting the ball pretty well," said McIlroy.
"It's just about going out there and putting a score on the card, and if I can do that... it'd be nice to, ya know, to play well here this week."
Aside from Adam Scott, Australians in the field include Jason Day, Marc Leishman, Aaron Baddeley Geoff Ogilvy, Greg Chalmers, Robert Allenby and John Senden.
