Two-time major champion Collin Morikawa and Max Homa announced Thursday afternoon they will team up for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans next month.

The Cal-Berkeley alums make up the fourth high-powered pairing for the $8.6 million tournament that’s set for April 20-23 at TPC Louisiana in Avondale.

The Fore!Kids Foundation, which stages the only two-man team event on the PGA Tour, earlier received commitments from the teams of Patrick Cantlay-Xander Schauffele, Sam Burns-Billy Horschel and Matt Fitzpatrick-Alex Fitzpatrick.

Morikawa won the PGA Championship in 2021 and claimed the 2022 British Open title. The 26-year-old, who has won five tournaments overall, is ranked 12th in the world.

Homa, 32, has won twice on Tour this season, taking the Farmers Insurance Open title and Fortinet Championship.

Currently ranked sixth in the world, Homa became the fourth top-10 player to commit to the tournament. He joins Cantlay (fourth), Schauffele (seventh) and Burns (10th) in the field.

Morikawa (12th) and Matt Fitzpatrick (15th) give the tournament six of the world’s top 15 players. Fitzpatrick is the reigning U.S. Open champion.
