Watson is another long hitter who has seen more success at Riviera than anyone teeing it up this week. Coming off his third win in the last five years at Riviera in 2018, Watson is just as poised and prepared as anyone in the field to take home this trophy once again. On top of Watson's three wins at Riviera, which account for all of his top-10 finishes, he has four top-20 finishes as well. He is also coming off a T-4 at TPC Scottsdale two weeks ago, so he's playing solid golf coming into a place where he's comfortable.

Riviera is a place built for players who hit the long ball. Playing at over 7,300 yards, it's a long course, even for the PGA Tour. Finau fits that mold, currently ranking second in driving distance on tour. He should be able to repeat the success he saw in this event last year when he finished T-2. He also has three top-20 finishes in his last six official starts.
Schauffele finished T-9 at Riviera last year. Since October, he has four Top-10 finishes and two wins: the WGC-HSBC Champions and Sentry Tournament of Champions. He might not be as long of a hitter as the other guys on this list, but he makes up for it in other areas, ranking fifth in strokes gained putting.
