Fans will not be in attendance, and the tournament will only be played on two courses, Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill, while Monterey Peninsula CC takes the week off this year. Dustin Johnson withdrew from the tournament on Monday evening.

Fantasy golf power rankings
30. Akshay Bhatia (+30000)
Picked up his first professional top-10 finish at the Safeway Open in the fall but has missed the cut in two of three events since. He’s second on Tour in Par 4 Efficiency: 350-400 Yards and there are six such holes on this week’s main course.
29. Brian Gay (+20000)
Claimed victory at the Bermuda Championship in the fall on a course designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr., who designed this week’s secondary course, Spyglass Hill GC. Had back-to-back top-10 finishes in this event in 2018 and 2019.
28. Tyler Duncan (+20000)
The 2019 RSM Classic winner doesn’t have a top-10 finish since, but he’s a good irons player and should be well-suited to the shorter – and more open – venue.
27. Seung Yul Noh (+30000)
An excellent short-game player. He surprised with a T-11 finish in last year’s Travelers Championship against a much stronger field than this.
26. Davis Riley (+25000)
Two-time winner on the Korn Ferry Tour last year who’s third on the regular-season points list. Tied for 58th last week for his first made cut on the PGA Tour since 2019.
25. Alex Noren (+5000)
Has cooled off since a stretch of three top-10 finishes in four events last summer, but this is a great field for him to get back on track.
24. Harold Varner III (+6600)
A T-13 finish last week was his third top-20 result already on the 2020-21 Tour season. He missed the cut last year, but he has often flirted with contention against fields comparable to this.
23. Denny McCarthy (+15000)
Typically a strong putter but has struggled with the flat stick this season. Missed the cut last week and in two of three events this year, but he had three top 10s last year in more similar fields.
22. Tom Lewis (+15000)
A consistent performer on the European Tour who burst onto the PGA Tour scene with a co-runner-up finish at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational in the summer. He hasn’t found that success in North America, but this is one of the weaker fields he has competed against.
21. Chez Reavie (+8000)
Averaging 0.59 Strokes Gained: Approach through 22 measured rounds on the season. He’ll benefit from being able to leave the driver in the bag on the shorter track.
20. Joel Dahmen (+6600)
Missed the cut last week with 1.17 strokes lost around-the-green per round. He tied for 14th here last year with 1.50 SG: Approach per round.
19. Matthew NeSmith (+6000)
Tied for seventh last week with a strong 1.14 SG: Approach per round. He tied for 11th in this event last year.
18. Sam Burns (+3500)
Finished T-22 last week but on the back of 2.72 SG: Putting per round. He hasn’t played a round at Pebble Beach and could be in for a letdown with his driver not as much of a difference-maker.
17. Henrik Norlander (+4500)
Can often rely too heavily on his putter but has strung together some quality finishes with a well-rounded game. He tied for 25th here last year.
16. Kevin Streelman (+3500)
Has made back-to-back cuts after opening 2021 with a missed cut at The American Express. He finished alone in second last year with 3.37 SG: Tee-to-Green per round.
15. Phil Mickelson (+4500)
Leads the field among those with a minimum of two appearances at Pebble Beach with 2.16 strokes gained on the field per round. The elder statesman still hits bombs, but those won’t help him as much here.
14. Nick Taylor (+7000)
The defending champ hasn’t done much since and comes in off a missed cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Still, he can’t be ruled out in this field.
13. Matt Jones (+5000)
Moved back inside the top 100 of the Official World Golf Ranking with a T-30 finish last week. He has made eight straight cuts with most against stronger fields.
12. James Hahn (+5500)
Was in contention Sunday in Phoenix until Brooks Koepka’s surge up the leaderboard left him in the dust. He finished 10th and averaged 1.01 SG: Approach per round for the week.
11. Brian Harman (+5000)
Twenty-sixth in the Golfweek/Sagarin world rankings and one of the top players in this field by that measure. Tied for eighth at The American Express before a T-36 finish last week in a stronger field.
10. Jordan Spieth (+2000)
Stole headlines last week with a resurgent 54-hole lead but finished T-4 with a disappointing Sunday effort. He led the field with 1.96 SG: Approach per round.
9. Max Homa (+4000)
Gained 1.47 strokes on approach per round. Tied for 14th in this event last year following a T-10 in 2019.
8. Cameron Davis (+3300)
Has already moved from 229th to 141st in the OWGR since the beginning of 2021. His third-place finish at The American Express sparked the biggest jump.
7. Si Woo Kim (+3000)
Has followed his victory at The American Express with a missed cut at the Farmers Insurance Open and a T-50 in Phoenix. He’s gaining 0.53 strokes per round around-the-green on the season.
6. Will Zalatoris (+1800)
The early PGA Tour Rookie of the Year frontrunner had another top-20 finish last week with a T-17. He gained 1.16 strokes per round on approach.
5. Francesco Molinari (+2200)
The 2018 Open Championship winner is one of the top players in this field despite his 92nd placing in the Golfweek rankings. He has two top 10s in two events this year after a forgettable 2020.
4. Daniel Berger (+1200)
His missed cut last week was his first since the Memorial Tournament in the summer. He tied for fifth in this event last year early in his comeback season.
3. Paul Casey (+1600)
The Englishman has had a successful, globe-trotting last month. He tied for eighth at The American Express, won the Omega Dubai Desert Classic and tied for 12th at the Saudi International. He’ll play for a fourth straight week with a lot of travel in between.
2. Jason Day (+1800)
Started showing some of his former world No. 1 form last summer and has placed in the top six in six of the last eight years in this event.
1. Patrick Cantlay (+650)
Best player in this field in the Golfweek rankings following Johnson’s withdrawal. Tied for 11th here last year.
