Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Preview
One of the most well-known and popular tournaments on the early part of the PGA Tournament is here in the form of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Five Top 20 players will be on hand, including Farmers Insurance Open winner Jason Day and defending champion Jimmy Walker.
Walker’s win last year was his third (and final) of a hot start that saw him leading the FedEx Cup race for most of the year. Also in the field is 2013 champion Brandt Snedeker, who holds the tournament record with his 267 scored that season.
Other former champions in the field are Dustin Johnson and D.A. Points.
The tournament features two-man teams consisting of a player and a celebrity for the first three rounds, along with the players keeping their individual scores as well.
The most obvious pairing of the day is Johnson, who is playing with father-in-law (and new grandfather) Wayne Gretzky.
