-- The field includes 46 of the top 50 in the World Golf Rankings.
-- Spieth and Jason Day missed the cut last year.

Tune in or check KSR for complete coverage of the four participating Wildcats. John Calipari spoke to the media for almost 40 minutes yesterday. Coach Cal had way too much to say in his offseason press conference for me to rehash it all here, so follow these links from yesterday's stories to get completely caught up: here. Devin Booker invited to join Team USA select team. Booker's big year continues with an invitation to Las Vegas to play with the USA select team this summer. Players on the select team do not participate in international play, but they do scrimmage against the national team in preparation for the upcoming Olympic games. The select team also provides the opportunity for young players to showcase their talents for consideration of a national team spot in the future. It is a great opportunity for Booker. UK announced basketball exhibition schedule and Big Blue Madness. UK announced on Wednesday that the Cats will host Clarion, John Calipari's alma mater, for a second time during the Calipari era. That will be the first of the upcoming season's two exhibition games, with the second being against Asbury, a first-time opponent for Kentucky.
