PEBBLE BEACH GL FEB 8 - 11, 2018
Stars from the golf, entertainment, sports, and business world all converge in the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week on the PGA Tour. Jordan Spieth returns to defend his title along with the other 151 players in the field, each of whom will have an amateur partner for at least the first three rounds. This tournament is special for a few reasons. Aside from the infamous Pebble Beach Golf Links, everyone in the field will also play Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the Monterrey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course.
After three rounds, one at each course, everyone who makes the cut returns for the final round, played at Pebble Beach. Combining the beauty of golf along the Monterrey Peninsula with the star-studded amateur field makes this week’s Tour stop a favorite amongst fans and players alike.
