The PGA Tour heads up the coast to continue the California Swing with the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, returning to a three-course format after using just two courses in 2021. Golfers will rotate around the three courses over the first three rounds before finishing at Pebble Beach on Sunday. The tournament was established in 1937. That said, let’s take a look at our Golf Betting analysis for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am event along with their PGA Tour odds.
Golf Betting Preview for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Tournament
The starting field consists of 156 amateurs and 156 professional golfers, each pro pairing with an amateur. Those two-person groups will play a better ball format over the first three days, rotating courses. After three days of action, the field will be cut to the final pairings who will play on Sunday.
Daniel Berger returns to defend his title after firing an 18-under last season, besting runner-up Maverick McNealy by two strokes. The victory was Berger’s fourth of his career.
The winner of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am receives 500 FedEx Cup points. The tournament purse is $8.7 million, and the winner gets $1.566 million.
Pebble Beach is the crown jewel of the tournament, regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world. The course officially opened in 1919 and has gone through numerous alterations over the years. Pebble Beach plays as a par-72 and stretches 6,972 yards.
Spyglass Hill is opened and operated by the Pebble Beach Company and opened 56 years ago. The links golf course was designed by famed golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. Also playing as a traditional par-72, the course measures 7,041 yards in length.
The last track in the rotation is Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course. The Shore Course was designed by Bob E. Baldock and Jack Neville in 1959. Playing as a par-71, the Shore Course reaches 6,957 yards from the tips.
Many top players are taking the week off as the PGA schedule ramps up in the coming weeks. However, the field does not lack some notable talent, with ten of the top 50 golfers in the world in action. Joining Berger is reigning FedEx Cup Champion Patrick Cantlay. Cantlay has had historical success, placing T3 and T11 in the last two starts.
2017 winner Jordan Spieth and 2015 champion Brandt Snedeker look to add another title to their trophy case. Speith tied with Cantlay last year with a T3 finish. Jason Day, fresh off a T3 last week at the Farmers, looks to keep the momentum going this week.
Some of the stars expected to tee it up this week include comedian Bill Murray, Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, country music stars Jake Owen and Darius Rucker, and Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star Mookie Betts.
Cantlay at +750 is the betting favorite, and last year’s winner, Berger, can be grabbed at +1200. Spieth and Day are value plays at +2200 each, and McNealy and Justin Rose have +2800 pre-tournament odds. Rose placed T6 last week at the Farmers, his second top ten finish in three starts.
