NOTES:
Since its inception, this event has raised over $47 million for adoption. The 2012 tournament raised more than $3 million for the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Established in 1992, the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption works to raise awareness for the more than 159,000 children waiting for adoption and to educate prospective parents about the adoption process. Dave Thomas was adopted at birth and was a national advocate for the cause.

The PGA Tour will be represented by Jason Day, Billy Horschel and Boo Weekley. Day is ranked 20th in the world and was a member of the International team at the Presidents Cup last month. Horschel captured his first PGA Tour victory at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April. Weekley won for the third time on the PGA Tour at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in May.

The LPGA Tour is represented by Natalie Gulbis, Cristie Kerr and Stacy Lewis. Gulbis won the 2007 Evian Masters for her lone LPGA Tour victory. Kerr won her 16th LPGA Tour title at the Kingsmill Championship in May. Lewis has won three times in 2013, including the Women's British Open in August. Lewis is currently ranked third in the world.

Fred Funk, Bernhard Langer and Kenny Perry will represent the Champions Tour. Funk has won eight times each on the PGA Tour and Champions Tour. Langer won the Champions Tour money title this year with more than $2.4 million in earnings. Perry captured the Charles Schwab Cup this season and finished second to Langer on the money list.

This year's event will be held at Rio Secco Golf Club in Henderson, Nevada for the sixth straight year. Reflection Bay Golf Club in Lake Las Vegas Resort hosted seven times (1998-2000, 2003-04, 2006-2007). In 2005, SouthShore Golf at Reflection Bay hosted the tournament for the fourth time (1996-97, 2001, 2005). Other courses to host the event are: New Albany Country Club (1992), Colleton River Plantation (1993), PGA West (Nicklaus Resort Course - 1994), Muirfield Village Golf Club (1995) and Dragon Ridge Country Club (2002). Overall, Lake Las Vegas Resort played host 11 times. The golf course was designed by Jack Nicklaus, his first design in Nevada.

The PGA Tour team of Day, Davis Love III and Nick Watney captured the tournament last year in a playoff over the LPGA Tour. Day drained a 5-foot birdie on the second playoff hole for the win. The Champions Tour finished five shots back. The PGA Tour has captured this event nine times, while the Champions Tour has garnered seven titles and the LPGA five.
