As the Masters tees off in Augusta, Georgia, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans announced the addition of three former LSU golfers to their 2016 field. Smylie Kaufman, Andrew Loupe and David Toms have all pledged their participation in the PGA Tour's annual stop in South Louisiana.

Kaufman ranks 49th in the World Golf Rankings and is currently at the Masters where he hit an ace during Wednesday's Par 3 Contest. Toms has been a regular in New Orleans' premier tournament since winning it all in 2001. Loupe has been in the Zurich field the last two years.

TPC Louisiana will play host to the tournament and its festivities from Monday, April 25 to Sunday, May 1 with the first round teeing off on Thursday.
