PGA DFS Coverage for AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
The PGA Tour heads up the California coastline a little over 400 miles to the Monterey Peninsula. We land on one of the most beautiful and sought after public courses in the country, Pebble Beach. This tournament lands in the perfect spot on the sports calendar as it doesn’t have to compete with any of the NFL Playoff craziness. The Super Bowl is in its off week which means we can enjoy the sites of Pebble Beach. We’ve got another three course format with a cut line happening after the third round. There will be celebrities like Bill Murray, Josh Allen, and more in the mix with these players as well. A lot to take into account when making your player selections at this event.
The Field: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
Defending champion Tom Hoge leads a solid field this weekend at Pebble Beach. A leaderboard regular and 2017 champion Jordan Spieth jumps back into the mix this weekend on the Monterey Peninsula. We’ve also got terrific players like Viktor Hovland, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Kevin Kisner, Webb Simpson, and Justin Rose teeing it up as well. You will also see a lot of young up and coming players like John Pak who is the current number one player in the PGA Tour University Ranking.
The Courses: Pebble Beach
You ask most every hack golfer in the United States that if money was no object, what course would you like to play? I’d say Augusta National is number one but a close second would be Pebble Beach. The difference is, Pebble is a public course, Augusta is not. The players will tee it up on all three courses over the first three days of the tournament. They’ll play Pebble Beach Golf Links (Par 72 – 6,972 yards), Monterey Peninsula (Par 71 – 6,957 yards) and Spyglass Hill (Par 72 – 7,041 yards). All of these courses are short and the key to being successful is accuracy and putting.
The Weather: Pebble Beach, California
The weather plays a big factor in the scoring at Pebble Beach. We are playing along a coastline which adds wind to the mix. There is rain in the forecast, mostly in the mornings throughout the weekend. These conditions are not out of the ordinary for this course. We will see fluctuating winds ranging from below five to the mid teens. The temperatures will be in the mid-to-high 50s. When you see conditions like these, I’m going to lean more towards experienced players at Pebble Beach because they've seen this before.
How To Watch the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am
The Farmers Insurance will have plenty of coverage on television throughout the weekend. We will see the tournament air on the Golf Channel on Wednesday and Thursday from 3-7pm ET.
