Craig Stadler is the defending champion at the Encompass Championship. In fact, his win the previous year was somewhat an incredible achievement after a string of poor performances preceding the victory. The golfer had confessed to the cameras that he had decided to quit as he felt that he was embarrassing himself in front of the audience. However, after his teacher Billy Harmon overhauled his swing in early 2013, Stadler’s love for the sport increased a great deal, culminating in victory at this tournament last year. Injuries have blighted his season so far as the defending champion struggles to recover from a sore back in time for the start of the tournament.
