Dustin Johnson withdraws from Pebble Beach Pro-Am

<p>PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. &mdash; Fresh off his victory in Saudi Arabia, Dustin Johnson decided Tuesday to withdraw from the AT&amp;T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, leaving the tournament without a player from the top 10 in the world ranking.</p>
<p>Johnson is a two-time winner at Pebble Beach. He typically plays with his de facto father-in-law, hockey great Wayne Gretzky, except that amateurs are not in the field this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.</p>
<p>Johnson has played the Saudi International and Pebble Beach in consecutive weeks each of the last two years, and this was the second time he has won in Saudi Arabia.</p>
<p>His manager, David Winkle at Hambric Sports Management, said the world’s No. 1 player decided he would be better off enjoying a week at home before going to Los Angeles for the Genesis Invitational at Riviera. The following week, he is scheduled to play a World Golf Championships event on Florida’s Gulf Coast.</p>
<p>“Other than being a bit jet-lagged, he is feeling great and looking forward to the weeks ahead," Winkle said. ”While he is disappointed to miss the AT&amp;T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which is always one of his favorite weeks, he feels his decision is for the best.”</p>
<p>Patrick Cantlay at No. 11 is the highest-ranked player at Pebble Beach, which is likely to have its weakest field since the world ranking began in 1986.</p>
