How does this work with 3 courses?

Do they play Spyglass and Monterey Peninsula Thursday & Friday, then Pebble on the weekend?

Or do they play 3 rounds before the cut?

Or is it just random who plays where? I feel like that's definitely not a fair way to have an official PGA event with FedEx Cup points on the line. To get cut while playing course X and Y, yet someone else makes the cut after playing Y and Z.


Also, interesting that Monterey Peninsula is the longest course of the 3, while also being the only par 71.

Pebble Beach is truly an iconic golf course.
But this tournament is painful to watch. Lots of CEO's who pay big bucks to play and too many Hollyweird have beens trying to out funny each other during the 5-7 hour rounds.

First day at AT&T. Dissapointed that there is no access to the driving range at Pebble. This has never been the case. So you have all the pros practicing behind a wooden fence. I talked to the guy at the entrance to the range and he said they are doing things differently. Is this happening at other tournaments also? Second suprise was all the luxury suites. They have them located on number 8, 17 and 18. The ones on 17 and 18 remind me of the ones at Phoenix. On the good side the weather was off the hook wonderful. I noticed lots of golfers taking pictures today, and caddies also. Iím always unsure on weather I should ask a golfer for a picture or a. Autograph when they are just standing there. I had that happen today with Grahame McDowell. He was on the 4th tee and I was basically the only spectator. I wanted to ask him if he was excited about the Open coming to Royal Portrush but I didnít because I feel like he is working. Any opinions on this at a tournament? Anyway , great day at s great course. Tomorrow I think Iím heading to Spyglass.

I have talked with different players during pro ams, they usually are very nice, also if you ask for autographs in a nice way without kicking babies there is nothing wrong with it

I've only had experience with the European Tour, but don't be afraid to ask for a photo on non-tournament days between holes. If you're the only spectator, you should engage with the player. They've practice days every single week of their lives, 99% of them won't be bothered on Tuesday and Wednesday.

You'll regret it when it gets to the tournament days, and you can't do that.

I sure hope thatís not a trend on the driving range. Last time I was at the Houston Open(about 3 years ago) they had the bleachers maybe 40-50 yards behind the range. What good is that? I felt like I should have brought my binoculors. The range has becone a great place to watch great shots. I think they should keep it fan friendly. As a kid I remember being so close you could understand them ribbing each other. Lets hope that gate doesnít catch on.

Thanks for the advice on engaging the players. I always want to air on the side of caution. As far as the driving range situation I hope more people complain. I know there are many at the AT&T that want to watch the players warm up and see how they practice. Also it is much easier to see them shaping shots and smashing drives than it is while on the course.

For those that haven't seen this, this was an awesome documentary about Ray Romano trying to make the cut at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. It's never bee available for on-demand on HBO. I'm glad someone uploaded it.

Actually pretty cool. He nailed that Zen doctor right on the top of the head. The best part is Rays punch out of the trees. "How many times you gona hit it (tree)?" And he bounces it off 3 different trees.

To play that course,  Pebble Beach, would be nice. Maybe. As with every course along a shoreline. I guess the pacific coast is littered with courses with that kind of sea contact, and something makes this course stand out from the rest of them. Having seen numerous versions of tournaments played there, including US opens, I guess the grandeur of that course really do not really show on television screens. OK, there's the par three hole, the 7 th, out into the ocean, and 18 is of course spectacular with waves breaking to the left of the players walking, but then, there is nothing special seeing the holes on TV. Except for a lot of sea.

If you compare it to Augusta, Old Course and courses like PGA National or Sawgrass, on those courses I can remeber the last 6-7 holes, but Pebble Beach is really, for me watching, again, just a lot of aea.

Do you have to be there, to play it, to really appreciate it? It's world famous for being one of the courses everyone want to play, and for the expensive greenfee. What's the thing?

If a non-golfer is flipping through the channels and stumbles upon the Golf Channel, I guarantee they'd think Pebble Beach is a hundred times more exciting looking than the Old Course.

Beachside golf + celebrities having fun = viewership meant to draw in the non-golfing viewers.

Pebble Beach is always recognized as one of the best courses, usually top 10, but not in the Same class as Augusta according to most people.  I have walked this course maybe 50 or more times and played it once. I have been there for Crosbyís , AT&Ts and 3 US Opens. I think the main thing that is missing from the television broadcasts in the panoramic nature of the course. If you stand out at the 7th you can see most of the course as 9 of the 18 holes play along the ocean. I played Royal Portrush and Royal County Down in Ireland and would rate it along the lines of those 2 courses. During the AT&T Pebble does not play to its full length but you can see the tees they used for the US Open in 2010 which are further back. But definitely one of the best.

Day 2 at the AT&T. Spent the day at Spyglass. When I arrived there Jordan Spieth was putting on the practice green. When he was done he signed about 5 autographs, someone asked him for a picture and he refused and than he left, jumping in his car and taking off. By far the biggest star I had seen this week.
It was another beautiful day, the weather just could not be any better. I saw Angel Cabrera, VJ Singh, Adam Scott, all Masters champions.
They post who is playing the course at the clubhouse which is nice. After I walked around I noticed Bryson DeChambeau was suppose to start at 12:20. Every golfer on the board had shown up but Bryson didnít . He was one of the golfers I wanted to watch so I was mildly dissapointed. The most personable golfer was Ben Martin, he acknowledged the crowd and said thank you when people clapped for his drive on hole 7.
So another great day. Tomorrow I will probably hit Spyglass again since Pebble is having all the celebrity stuff going on at that course and I will wait for the tournament to start to check out Monterey Penninsula CC

In regards to playing Spyglass I would rate it harder than Pebble unless the wind is blowing. From memory the scores at Pebble are usually about a stroke lower than they are at Spyglass. The first 5 holes at Spyglass play in the dunes and than the course goes inland. Just play the tees that are equal to your skill level and you will have a blast. I know you said you are playing Pebble and Spyglass, if you had time for a third course I would pass on Spanish Bay and play Pasatiempo which is just down the coast and one of my favorites. Hope this helps.

Tee Times & Pairings up now.

I would have assumed they'd match up big name celebrities to the big name golfers. Skimming through this...

Aaron Rodgers is playing with Jerry Kelly. I honestly don't even know who Jerry Kelly is.
Carson Daly and...who? Ken Duke? Who?
Tony Romo with...Will Zalatoris?!

I never knew there were so many PGA Tour players that I've never heard of.


Oh...DJ and Wayne Gretzky. Nobody saw that coming.

Also, on the chart here is a number in parenthesis next to the Am's name, which I'm assuming is their handicap.

I can't imagine being a Tour Pro, playing in an official event that has FedEx Cup points on the line, and having to be paired with an 18 handicapper. That would throw my game off so much.

The only time I ever cared for a pro am was as a kid when Glen Campbell was playing. That would have to be a Sunday only event if I ever had the chance to attend.

Tee Times & Pairings up now.

I would have assumed they'd match up big name celebrities to the big name golfers. Skimming through this...

Aaron Rodgers is playing with Jerry Kelly. I honestly don't even know who Jerry Kelly is.
Carson Daly and...who? Ken Duke? Who?
Tony Romo with...Will Zalatoris?!

I never knew there were so many PGA Tour players that I've never heard of.


Oh...DJ and Wayne Gretzky. Nobody saw that coming.

Totally right. Who wants to see Rory paired with some guy named Gerry McIlroy, when he could have been matched with Larry Fitzgerald or Aaron Rodgers :swoon:

They didn't just come up with the format this year. Enjoy it or pass on it, but it is what it is.

Probably just crowd control.

Maybe its a study to see if people come out for the pros or Hollywood? So I say avoid Hollywood and follow the big name pros.

This is a Sunday only event for me. The coverage up until then is brutal, especially before Saturday.

I do like the nostalgia factor. Growing up in the cold north, I spent many weekend afternoons watching golf in the winter, and the three events hosted by Andy Williams, Bob Hope, and Bing Crosby all stick out in my memory.
