Puerto Rico Open 2014: Daily Leaderboard Analysis, Highlights and More
Ricardo Arduengo/Associated Press

With the world's top golfers battling it out in Doral, Fla., at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, the 2014 Puerto Rico Open lacks star power. 

Don't let the lack of stars fool you into tuning out, however. This is still an important tournament. 

Held at the Trump International Golf Course in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico, this event has a $3.5 million purse, which provides a great opportunity for lesser-known golfers to grab a nice paycheck and solidify their standing on the money list.     

I wonder if they keep the winnings in a pot at the end of this rainbow tweeted by Fearless Golf.

There are also 300 FedEx Cup points up for grabs. 

Scott Brown is the defending champion. He notched his first PGA win at this event last year. That made him the third first-time winner to take this tournament in the past six years. 

Brown's win was not the big story last year, though. That belonged to Jordan Spieth.

At just 19, Spieth finished in second place, just one stroke off the lead. That result made the golfing world take notice, and Spieth continued to impress all last season. He was so impressive, that he is playing in the WGC event this week. 

Brown will be back to defend his win, however, and he will be battling for the title against the likes of, among many others, Brooks Koepka, John Daly, David Duval, Trevor Immelman, David Toms, Scott Brown, Y.E. Yang, Fabian Gomez, Alex Cejka and Lee Janzen. 

We'll be tracking the action round by round in the slides that follow.
