Notes: Even with a Masters in November, the following week is at a seaside resort. It's Hilton Head Island in April, about an hour north along the Atlantic coast. ... Masters runner-up Sungjae Im is among 40 players in the field who were at Augusta National last week. ... Joaquin Niemann is in the field. He missed the Masters last week because of a positive test for the coronavirus. Niemann already is eligible for next April's Masters. ... There are 20 Europeans in the field, 11 of whom have played in the Ryder Cup. ... Tournament host Davis Love III is not playing this year because of ongoing neck issues. ... Three of the last four tournaments at Sea Island have gone to a playoff. ... The RSM Classic usually is the final official PGA Tour event of the year. Still to come is the Mayakoba Golf Classic a week after Thanksgiving. ... Kevin Streelman has slipped just outside the top 50. The top 50 at the end of the year get into the Masters in April. ... Davis Thompson, the No. 1 amateur in the world, is playing on an exemption.

Next tournament: Mayakoba Golf Classic on Dec. 3-6.
