This week: Northern Trust Open, Thursday through Sunday, Riviera Country Club, Pacific Palisades, Calif.

World rankings: Moore is 42nd, and Kelly is 285th.

2013 earnings: Moore has $360,600 (29th on the PGA Tour), and Kelly has $13,715 (163rd on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: Moore took home a solo fourth-place finish at the Waste Management Phoenix Open (22-under-par 262) on Feb. 3, then took last week off to prepare for a busier playing schedule, which includes next week’s WGC-Accenture Match Play Championships. And because of the way he has been playing – and also his track record at Riviera CC (five consecutive cuts made here; tied for fourth in 2011, and tied for 17th last season) – he was made the early-week favorite by … After a few off-weeks to start the season, Kelly has really put in extra time getting his golf swing grooved. Signs indicate he might be coming out of a funk – he tied for 62nd at last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am (even-par 286). This will be his first Northern Trust Open start.

Tee times Thursday: Kelly at 6:40 a.m. PST off the 10th tee, and Moore at 7:11 a.m. PST off the first tee.
