NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The field for the 2019 Zurich Classic continues to add big names.

Brooks Koepka, the world's No. 3-ranked golfer and reigning U.S. Open champion, has committed to play the New Orleans-based tournament again this year with his brother Chase, now a member of the European Tour.

Tournament officials announced the additions this week after earlier commitments from Bubba Watson and J.B. Holmes, who will team again at this year's tournament, were revealed.

Australian star Adam Scott makes his Classic debut, teamed with fan favorite, Jason Day. Both have been ranked #1 in the world and are major championship winners. Day has claimed 12 PGA Tour titles, including the 2015 PGA Championship.

The tournament will be played April 25-28 at the TPC of Louisiana in Avondale.

The Koepka brothers tied for fifth in the 2017 Zurich Classic, the first year of the tournament's new team format.
