Welcome back to the Snake Pit.

The 2017 Valspar Championship kicks off Thursday at Innisbrook's Copperhead Course, with defending champ Charl Schwartzel looking to defend his title at the challenging track.

Henrik Stenson returns to play after withdrawing with illness in Mexico last week. He tees off with Schwartzel and Bubba Watson at 7:56 a.m. Thursday. Justin Thomas will look for redemption after narrowly missing what would have been his fourth win of the season in Mexico. He'll play the first two rounds, starting at 12:35 p.m. Thursday, with Daniel Berger and Steve Stricker. Last year's runner-up Bill Haas, defeated in a playoff, tees it up with Matt Kuchar and Gary Woodland at 12:46 p.m. Thursday.

Other notable names in the field include Patrick Reed, Jim Furyk and Jason Dufner. Can they survive one of the toughest closing-hole stretches on Tour?
