NOTES: Tournament host Tiger Woods withdrew on Monday due to a foot injury and was replaced by Sepp Straka. … Albany will play host to the event for the seventh consecutive time. … This is an unofficial PGA Tour event that does not award FedEx Cup points. … The 20-player field includes 17 of the top 25 players in the Official World Golf Ranking. … Straka is among seven players making their event debuts. Only Hovland and Jon Rahm (2018) have won the tournament in their debuts. … The only other previous champion in the field is Jordan Spieth (2014). There are three past champions who now play for LIV Golf and were not invited: Henrik Stenson (2019), Bubba Watson (2015) and Graeme McDowell (2010, 2012) … Hovland carded a final-round 66 to beat Scottie Scheffler by a single stroke last year.
NEXT TOURNAMENT: Sentry Tournament of Champions, Maui, HI, Jan. 5-9
