Notes: The tournament will not have amateurs for the first time because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Without amateurs or spectators, it will be played on two courses — Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill. … Dustin Johnson, No. 1 in the world, withdrew from the field. He is coming off a victory in Saudi Arabia and chose to stay home to rest. That leaves Pebble Beach without a player from the top 10 in the world. … This is the weakest field at Pebble Beach since the world ranking began in 1986. … Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey are among those who were playing in Saudi Arabia last week. … Rickie Fowler is playing the tournament for the first time since 2012. Fowler is No. 63 in the world and not yet eligible for the Masters. … John Daly is making a rare start on the PGA Tour, as is David Duval. … Jordan Spieth is coming off his first top 10 since the 2019 PGA Championship. … Will Zalatoris, who earned special temporary membership on the PGA Tour, received a late sponsor exemption. He cracked the top 50 in the world last week. … Kamaiu Johnson, whose first PGA Tour appearance was delayed when he tested positive for the coronavirus at Torrey Pines, was given a sponsor exemption. He is among two Advocates Pro Golf Association Tour members in the field.
