Palm Harbor, FL-- Ernie Els and Geoff Ogilvy committed to play in next week's Tampa Bay Championship at Innisbrook.
Els is a 4-time Major Championship winner, including last year's British Open that boosted him to #24 in the World Rankings. Els also finished one stroke out of the playoff, in last year's Transitions Championship.
Ogilvy had fallen out of the top 50 in the world, but finished second in last week's Honda Classic. Ogilvy won the U.S. Open in 2006.
However, the 4th-ranked player in the world, Brandt Snedeker, withdrew due to an injury.
The 1st round of the Tampa Bay Championship is Thursday, Mar. 14.
