Jordan Spieth headlines Valspar Championship field at Innisbrook

The field is set for next week's Valspar Championship at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor.

World No. 1 Jordan Spieth will return to defend his title. Henrik Stenson (sixth) and Patrick Reed (10th) are also top-10 players in the tournament.

Other notables include Ernie Els, Matt Kuchar and Steve Stricker, and past champions Vijay Singh, Sean O'Hair, K.J. Choi, Kevin Streelman, Carl Pettersson, John Senden, Luke Donald, Gary Woodland and Retief Goosen.

Graeme McDowell, the 2010 U.S. Open champ, will play at Innisbrook for the first time.

Notably absent is John Daly, who was not given a sponsor's exemption. Daly, 49, had played in six straight tournaments and 10 overall.

The PGA Tour event begins Thursday on the Copperhead Course.
