Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Top 10 Power Rankings
Pebble Beach Pro-Am winner Gregg Ontiveros and PGA Tour winner Vaughn Taylor were the champions last year. Who will follow in their footsteps this year?
Pebble Beach always produces a great show as well as some great golf. If anyone ever tries to tell you that professional golf is boring, have them tune in for the PGA Tour’s February events.
One week after playing in front of some of the most energetic crowds in sports at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, the game’s top pros are headed back to California for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where elite players and big name celebrities alike will try their luck on three of the area’s top courses.
While most of the attention will go towards the professionals, the pro-am portion of the tournament always provides some great moments — after all, who doesn’t like to see their favorite celebrities struggle with the same shots that give us so much trouble? Notable amateurs competing in this year’s event include comedian Bill Murray, singer Justin Timberlake and NFL legend Peyton Manning (click here for a full list).
Without further ado, let’s get to my projections for this week. Here are ten of the best bets for success at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
With three solid finishes to start off the new year, Jordan Spieth looks poised to add to his win total.
No. 6, Three consecutive top 10 finishes
After a fast start to 2017, Justin Rose looks like one of the frontrunners heading into this week.
No. 12, Back-to-back top five finishes
One of the great players in the history of Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Phil Mickelson is in the right form to pick up another victory this week.
No. 22, Four consecutive top 25 finishes
Dustin Johnson should be able to shake off a missed cut in his last start and contend in one of his favorite events on the schedule.
No. 4, Two-time winner at Pebble Beach
Jason Day is off to a shaky start in 2017, but it’s only a matter of time before he figures it out.
No. 1, Five career top 15s at Pebble Beach
The ultra-consistent Daniel Berger returned to form in Phoenix last week, significantly improving his stock for the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
No. 33, Three top 15s in last five starts
With multiple wins at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Brandt Snedeker should be able to use his experience to his advantage this week.
No. 27, Three top 10s in last four starts
Jon Rahm appears to be on a legitimate hot streak, so there’s no reason to start doubting him now.
No. 42, Back-to-back top 20 finishes
With a lot of course knowledge in his back pocket, J.B. Holmes looks ripe for contention this week.
No. 32, Five career top 20s at Pebble Beach
After a successful return to action in Phoenix last week, Matt Kuchar should be capable of continuing his good play.
No. 21, Tied for ninth at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open
