HOUSTON – Keegan Bradley, 2011 PGA Championship winner and No. 20 in the World Golf Rankings, plus No. 26 Paul Casey of England, the 2009 Shell Houston Open champion, are on the commitment list for the March 26-April 1 event at Redstone Golf Club – Tournament Course.

Bradley, the 2011 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, joins 2011 British Open champion Darren Clarke of Ireland as the second reigning major championship winner in the SHO field. Casey is making his first appearance in Houston since suffering an injury during the pro-am round of the 2010 tournament.

Tournament Director Steve Timms is scheduled to be at the Cadillac Championship WGC event at Doral this week. "We hope to finalize commitments from more high profile players in Miami," said Timms.
