Last year John Merrick became the first Los Angeles County native to win the tournament in its 87-year history. The UCLA alumnus came from three shots back entering the final round to take it to a two-hole playoff with Charlie Beljan.  Merrick won his first PGA TOUR title only 30 miles north of where he grew up and still lives, Long Beach.  Merrick returns to Riviera to defend his title in a strong field that includes 16 of the top 30 players in the Official World Golf Ranking and 23 of the top 30 in the FedExCup standings.  Past champions of the Northern Trust Open in the field also include Bill Haas, Ernie Els, Robert Allenby, Mike Weir, Charles Howell III, Aaron Baddeley and Fred Couples, making his 32nd start here, along with the top players in the world including Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Graham DeLaet, Ian Poulter, Jason Dufner, Jordan Spieth, Matt Kuchar, Keegan Bradley, Charl Schwartzel, Lee Westwood, Webb Simpson, Hunter Mahan, Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama, Ryan Moore, Charlie Wi, Ryo Ishikawa, Louis Oosthuizen, Geoff Ogilvy, Jim Furyk, K.J.
