AT&T PEBBLE BEACH PRO-AM
The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, once known as the Bing Crosby National Pro-Amateur, is a PGA Tour tournament played annually in Pebble Beach, California. The tournament has rotated from Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula CC and was first played in 1937.
The tournament features a field of 156 professional golfers and 156 amateurs, with one of each being paired together. Some amateurs that have teed it up at the Pro-Am include Justin Timberlake, Kevin Costner, Tom Brady and Bill Murray – with actor Jim Backus actually making the cut in 1964.
Mark O’Meara has won the tournament the most times with an astounding five victories, which represents almost a third of all his PGA Tour wins. Phil Mickelson and Sam Snead both won the tournament four times, with Mickelson winning three of the last seven contests.
The tournament is one of fun as well as talent, as many will flock to the coast to see their favorite golfers and celebrities alike tee it up as they mingle and enjoy themselves on some of the best courses in the country.
