Naples - Australia's top-ranked Jason Day and American Cameron Tringale will defend their title at the 27th Franklin Templeton Shootout in December, World Golf Hall of Fame host Greg Norman announced Thursday.

The field of 24 players was revealed for the December 10-12 event at Tiburon Golf Club but pairings were not announced, except to say that Day and Tringale would defend the wire-to-wire crown they won by one stroke last year over 2013 champions Harris English and Matt Kuchar.

The lineup includes Day and six other top-30 players in the world rankings, including Americans Kuchar, Zach Johnson, J.B. Holmes, Patrick Reed, Billy Horschel and Brandt Snedeker.

New Zealand's Danny Lee will be among five first-time players, a group also including Americans Daniel Berger, Charley Hoffman, Hunter Mahan and Patrick Rodgers.

Past major winners returning to the event include Northern Ireland's Graeme McDowell, Canada's Mike Weir, South African Retief Goosen and American Jason Dufner.

Also playing will be Americans Charles Howell, Kenny Perry, Sean O'Hair, Steve Stricker, Gary Woodland and South African Rory Sabbatini.

The event features a Scramble format on Thursday, a Modified Alternate Shot format on Friday and a Better Ball format in Saturday's final round.
