Luke List is one of the top names from the web.com Tour on the PGA Tour this year.
The Sony Open has traditionally been the coming-out party for rookies fortunate enough to have earned their PGA Tour playing cards.
Somewhat surprisingly, no rookie has ever won since this event moved to a January date. Jerry Kelly, in 2002, was the last player to make the Sony Open his first PGA Tour victory.
Twenty-six players qualified for their PGA Tour cards this year, 25 coming from the top 25 of the Nationwide Tour (Web.com Tour).
Twenty-four of those will be making their PGA Tour debut this weekend.
This will be the first appearance in a PGA Tour event for nine of these players.
You'll be hearing more and more from names like Luke List, Russell Henley and Robert Streb.
