Notes: The tournament again promises to be the strongest of any regular PGA Tour event, with eight players from the top 10 in the world. … Tiger Woods is the tournament host and will not be playing as he recovers from a fifth back surgery. Riviera is the course Woods has played the most times (11) without ever winning. … Dustin Johnson has won or been runner-up in seven of his last nine tournaments worldwide. … Tyrrell Hatton of England and Webb Simpson are the only players from the top 10 not playing. Hatton has a World Golf Championship next week in Florida, followed by his title defense at Bay Hill and then The Players Championship. … Jordan Spieth was the co-leader and the leader after 54 holes at the last two tournaments. He tied for fourth in Phoenix and tied for third at Pebble Beach. … Willie Mack III is playing on the Charlie Sifford exemption. He also played at Torrey Pines by filling in for Kamaiu Johnson after a positive coronavirus test. … The top 50 in the world ranking this week are eligible for next week’s World Golf Championship in Florida. Among those still not eligible are Spieth and Rickie Fowler. The top 50 from this week already are including Woods, Will Zalatoris and Bubba Watson.
