The Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is a 72-hole PGA Tour golf event dating back to the 1930s when Bing Crosby gathered a few friends to raise money for charity. Now, 80 years later, it’s known as the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and is one of the most popular PGA Tour golf tournaments of the year for pros and spectators alike. The fun gets started February 9-12, 2017.
This annual clambake features an all-star lineup of both pros and celebrities, making it as much fun for serious golfers as it is autograph seekers and stargazers. Each professional has an amateur partner and will rotate courses the first three days between Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Spyglass Hill Golf Club and Pebble Beach Golf Links. The cut is made on Saturday night and the leading 60 professionals and 25 pro-am teams will play Pebble Beach Golf Links on Sunday for the final round.
Pebble Beach was built in 1919 and has been the site of golf's most prestigious tournaments, including the 1972, '82, '92, 2000 and 2010 U.S. Open Championships. The mystic layout measures 6,816 and will go down as a masterpiece.
Spyglass Hill Golf Course was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. as a part of the master plan for the Pebble Beach oceanfront. It ranks as the toughest in the rotation year after year. The beautiful layout measures 6,858 yards with several elevation changes that make it difficult for players to choose the right club.
Monterey Peninsula is the easiest in the rotation. The par-70, 6,838-yard track will give up a lot of birdies and low scores.
Some of the great champions in golf have won at Pebble Beach. Sam Snead won the first two in 1937-38. Jack Nicklaus won it three times, 1967, 1972-73, Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw, Johnny Miller, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Mark O’Meara, who won it a record five times. Great courses produce great champions.
Defending champion Vaughn Taylor is joined by World No. 1 Jason Day and U.S. Open winner Dustin Johnson in a betting field that boasts eight of the top 25 in the Official World Rankings. Major winners Justin Rose, Phil Mickelson, Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth, Jim Furyk and Ernie Els are also in the field.

Pebble Beach Golf Links has been the site of some of the greatest tournaments ever.
The main course has played host to the US Open and it’s fabled 18th fairway has seen the thrill of victory & agony of defeat and many times.
The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-AM was first held in 1937 and hosted by Bing Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, California, the event's location prior to World War II. Sam Snead won the first tournament, in which the first place check was for $500.
After the war, the event resumed play in 1947 on golf courses in Pebble Beach, where it has been played ever since. Beginning that year, it was played at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Cypress Point Club and Monterey Peninsula Country Club until 1966.
In 1967 Spyglass Hill replaced Monterey Peninsula Country Club as the third course (with the exception of 1977, when it returned to MPCC).
In 1991, Cypress Point Club was dropped by the PGA Tour because it would not admit women, and was replaced as a tournament venue by Poppy Hills Golf Course, a move that finalized the current roster of tournament venues.
The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-AM tournament continues to be a success every year despite the rain fall that typically slows down play, especially in 1996, 1998 and 1999. There is an equivalent celebrity pro-am event on the European PGA Tour, called the Dunhill Links Championship.
The starting field consists of 180 professionals and 180 amateurs. One professional is paired with one amateur.
Each day, 60 2-man teams will play on one of the three courses. Then on the final day, those professionals and pro-amateur teams making the 54-hole cut will play on the Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Only professionals may compete in the individual competition part of the tournament. Amateurs are restricted to playing only in the pro-amateur team competition.
The local Pebble Beach tournament officials handle pairing of professionals with amateurs, while the PGA Tour's weekly tournament officials handle the assignment of tee times.
American Jordan Spieth won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am by four shots for his ninth PGA Tour title.
Spieth is the second youngest player to reach the landmark at 23 years and six months, a month later than 14-time major winner Tiger Woods.
The two-time major winner carded a two-under-par 70 to finish on 19-under, with American Kelly Kraft in second after he shot 67 in the final round.
Victory in California means Spieth is the only player in PGA Tour history to win by three strokes or more, five times before the age of 24.
The Texan, who had led since the halfway stage, hit two birdies in his bogey-free final round, including one from 30ft on the par three 17th.
He managed to play the final 28 holes of the tournament without a bogey.
