2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Betting Preview & Pick

Posted by Derrick Harper on February 7, 2019 in

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am has returned to a chilly California coast this week. This year’s event also serves as a sort of U.S Open preview, since the host course, Pebble Beach Golf Links, will welcome the season’s third major in June so be sure to keep your eyes peeled because performance in this event will very likely carry over to future events and betting lines.

The stars of golf, entertainment, sports, and business will be mixing it up over three courses on the Monterey Peninsula this weekend. Check back for the latest Golf Odds.

2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Betting Preview & Pick

2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Field Led by DJ

Dustin Johnson, now World No. 3 after his win in Saudi Arabia last week, will be paired with hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. The Great One also happens to be the grandfather of DJ’s two children with Paulina Gretzky. Johnson and Gretzky will be playing alongside Jordan Spieth and country music singer Jake Owen, who happens to have attended Florida State University on a golf scholarship before hitting it big with a guitar.

This featured foursome begins to play Thursday at 11:11 a.m. Eastern on No. 1 of the Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course. Viral sensation Hosung Choi and his “fisherman” swing will make his much-anticipated PGA Tour debut at the Pebble Pro-Am, teeing off at 12:17 p.m. Thursday. Choi is 145th in the world and is playing on a sponsor’s exemption … Among Choi’s playing partners: Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers.

Aaron Rodgers is one of the main attractions at the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Other celebrity participants range from fellow professional athlete Matt Ryan to musicians like Darius Rucker and Toby Keith, to comedians like Ray Romano and Larry The Cable Guy. NFL on CBS analyst Tony Romo, who has tried to qualify for the U.S. Open and missed the cut in his 2018 PGA Tour debut, will also play.

Different Format for 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

At the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, each of the 156 teams will play Pebble Beach, along with Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course, using the better-ball format. The pros also compete in individual stroke play. The 25 low-scoring teams and 60 low-scoring pros will advance to Sunday’s final round back at Pebble Beach.

The pro winner will pocket over $1.3 million and 500 FedExCup points. Dustin Johnson appears to be favored going into the event. He won Pebble Beach in 2009 and 2010 and is coming off a win at the Saudi International, where he birdied his last two holes (and four of his last eight) to close with a 67.

Jet-lag could be a concern, given that these tournaments are halfway around the world from each other. While Johnson currently looks to be the odds-on favorite, the weather along the California coast could make things interesting.

A strong storm ripped through the area early Saturday morning, destroying a hospitality structure. Beyond the need for a little cleanup, the actual courses were unaffected. Looking ahead, Mother Nature could make things a little messy, particularly on Friday, when rain looks likely for much of the day.

Enjoy the event!
