Stallings, 30, has recorded three PGA TOUR titles since turning professional in 2007. His latest victory came at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open. The Knoxville, Tennessee resident is currently ranked No. 142 in the Official World Golf Rankings and No. 91 in FedExCup points. Stallings will be making his fifth start on The Old White TPC Course, after a T-35 finish in last year’s event.
