The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-AM starts on Thursday and it’s not just full of celebrities, but also features a solid field. Unfortunately because CBS generally fails to recognize that golf fans who tune in to watch golf would rather watch Jason Day and Dustin Johnson and not Joe Billionaire, the first day of coverage on the network will be difficult to watch.
The first two days of the tournament take place over Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Once the cut is made on Saturday everyone left moves to Pebble.
The field is littered with solid competition who have had success in the event.

Well last week I whiffed and didn’t think Hideki would come out firing, but I’ll be damned if he didn’t prove me wrong and win his fifth tournament in his last nine starts. I picked DJ last week and I’m picking DJ again this week. I’d love to pick Phil, and he’s playing well, I just don’t know if he’s quite there yet.
He’s won at Pebble twice and and finished in the top 10 six times. If anything he’s just a solid pick. Of course if the weather becomes an issue, watch out for Snedeker!
