WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) To get ready for this week's tournament, Bubba Watson simply has to walk out his front door.

Watson moved his family a month ago into a home built at The Greenbrier, the resort in West Virginia that has hosted U.S. presidents and royalty - and now has its resident Bubba.

He'll tee it up in the Greenbrier Classic starting Thursday on the Old White TPC.

Watson is No. 3 in the world and is the top-ranked player in the Greenbrier Classic field. Others include No. 17 Jimmy Walker, No. 18 Steve Stricker and No. 25 Keegan Bradley.

Ten winners on Tour this season are entered, as well as the four past champions of the tournament and 16 ex-major champions, including Nick Faldo and Tom Watson, the Greenbrier's golf pro emeritus.
