Two great fields in the world of golf this week: The Top 3 in the world at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic; some interesting storylines at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Alas, Graeme McDowell isn't playing either. He's passing up a return visit to Pebble Beach Golf Links, site of his 2010 U.S. Open victory.

But Dustin Johnson, who blew the 2010 U.S. Open but is the 2-time defending champ at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, is playing. So is Vijay Singh, and I'm curious to see how Vijay does. He turns 48 in a couple weeks, but he's coming off a tie for third at the Phoenix Open - his best finish since 2008. And Singh loves Pebble Beach, he's a 2-time winner.

Also in the field at Pebble Beach are Phil Mickelson, Jim Furyk, Padraig Harrington, Hunter Mahan and Geoff Ogilvy.

On the European Tour, world No. 1 Lee Westwood is coming off a missed cut. He's joined in Dubai by No. 2 Martin Kaymer and No. 3 Tiger Woods. Others in the Dubai field include Rory McIlroy, Edoardo Molinari, Sergio Garcia and Matteo Manassero.
