2018 AT&T Pebble Beach ProAm
Expert Picks and Tournament Preview

AT&T Pebble Beach ProAm LogoThe AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am PGA Tournament is another one of the favorite stops for both players and fans. With celebrities and star athletes playing golf along with other amateurs it can become a sideshow atmosphere for all involved.

The Pebble Beach field consists of 156 PGA Tour players as well as 156 amateurs. One pro golfer is paired with one amateur. Each day of the AT&T Pro Am, 52 2-golfer teams play on 1 of 3 courses (Pebble Beach, Monterey Peninsula CC and Spyglass Hill GC). On the final Sunday, those pros and pro-amateur teams that make the 54-hole cut play the final round on the Pebble Beach course.

2018 AT&T Pebble Beach ProAm Tourney Preview

The 2018 Pebble Beach Pro Am will again have a top field of PGA Tour players but the golf seems to be the secondary event. Part of the fun of the tournament is the celebrity fun which brings fun and laughs to the tourney. So far confirmed celebrities for the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach include: Mark Wahlberg, Wayne Gretzky, Steve Young, Chris O’Donnell, Ray Romano, Toby Keith and Larry the Cable Guy. PGA Tour pros already committed to play in 2018 are: Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth.

For fantasy golf fans, course history can be key for both knowledge of the courses, as well as having the tolerance to deal with the antics that sometimes occur during the rounds. If you are going to play for some serious cash in a Free Fantasy Golf Contest you may want to consider that strategy when setting a fantasy golf lineup.
