PGA Tour: Looking Ahead at The Upcoming 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Next up on the PGA Tour Fedex Cup tournament schedule is the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the historic Pebble Beach Golf Links in northern California.

The event can be watched on the Golf Channel, and CBS on Sunday.

The field

The 35 year old Ted Potter Jr (then 34) won the event last year after posting a weekend of 68 | 71 | 62 | 69 | 270 to win by 3 strokes over runner-ups Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, and Phil Mickelson. It was the second tour win of Potter Jr’s career.

Note that the winner of this even will recieve 500 Fedex Cup points and the first place cut of a purse valued at $7.1M.

Favorites

Heading into the week, 2018 runner up Dustin Johnson ranked number 1, in front of Jason Day and Brandt Snedeker for the top power rankings spots.

Playing Conditions

Rain along with “hurricane like winds” ravaged the course over the weekend, and took out one of the upscale hospitality structures off the left side of the number 6 fairway.

The storm also caused minor damage to some sky suites, knocked down a tree near the 17th tee and tore apart the giant video screen along the 18th green, according to Golf Channel.

The course itself sustained no major damages and is expected to be in fine playing shape by the start of the event.

I first picked up a club when I was a 13 year-old high school student. Later that day I played my first round at a local municipal course where I holed out a par from the fringe on my first ever hole. ...the rest of the round was all downhill, but I still hold that par in high regard!

Some 20 years later, I've played hundreds of rounds at dozens of courses. I've played junior golf, collegiate golf, and golf for the sake of getting out and drinking with the buddies.

I've tried the gadgets and do-dads, but never had a club fitting. I seldom get my complete game to cooperate in any one round, but I still love it.

From instructing youths to playing with various ailments as the injuries pile up... I may not have seen it all, but I've seen a lot in this great game.
