One of the most exciting events on the PGA TOUR, the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is contested annually in front of thousands of spectators and millions of television viewers on three of the Monterey Peninsula’s premier golf courses: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore.

Monterey Peninsula Foundation is proud to host the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In the last fiscal year, the Foundation donated $12.3 million to support local nonprofits in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito Counties.

Pebble Beach

Pebble Beach Golf Links

Six-Time Host of the U.S. Open Championship

1972 • 1982 • 1992 • 2000 • 2010 • 2019

In 2019, the Championship returned to Pebble Beach for a sixth time — more than any course in the last 50 years. The course will host its first Women’s U.S. Open Championship in 2023, and the Men’s Championship will return for seventh time in 2027. 

Spyglass Hill Golf Course

The Greatest Meeting of Sand and Trees

If Pebble Beach is the Greatest Meeting of Land and Sea, then perhaps Spyglass Hill should be dubbed the Greatest Meeting of Sand and Trees. The defining takeaway at Spyglass Hill is how starkly the first five holes juxtapose the rest of your round. Sweeping ocean views with holes darting through a daring dunescape give way to the understated natural beauty and brawn of the Del Monte Forest. Pine Valley-by-the-Sea meets Augusta National, as Sports Illustrated eloquently described it.

As an annual co-host of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, as well as a stroke-play venue for a pair of U.S. Amateur Championships (1999 and 2018), Spyglass Hill’s championship pedigree has been validated by the game’s very best.

 Our Picks

 KEVIN STREELMAN (USA) 45/1

The team watch Kevin’s front nine last week at the Waste Management and boy did he look impressive. He closed out with three birdies on six, seven and eight to finish the event in a tie for 22ND place.

For me last week was the turning point in his season he has not won since 2014 at the Travelers, but so much positive thoughts coming back to a place to just loves to play.

Check out his record over the past five years here:

17/14/6/7/2

Five top twenties in five years pretty much a no brain bet here.

One stat that really does stand out for me is his greens in regulation at over 74% this has shown us why he makes so many birdies when on a run. If he can get the putter going early here then no reason why he can’t go one better than last year and pick up his third PGA Tour title.

MAX HOMA (USA) 50/1

I am sticking with Max again here this week. He just didn’t turn up last week, and even though he made the cut he was still well back from the leaders so really owes us a good one here this week.

The team followed him for most of the week to see what and how he was playing. It was good reading overall from him he was up on his greens in regulation to 73.61% even his driving accuracy improved to 62.50% which is a marked improvement for his overall season.

It’s all about his putting for me, he has showed a slight improvement over the past three events so coming back to a course where he has a good track record on the greens should be another positive for us this week.

Oh and his last two finishes here have been tenth place in 2019 and fourteenth last year so ready to come out the blocks firing this week.

HENRIK NORLANDER (SWE) 50/1

This hugely talented golfer is not far away from his first PGA Tour win. Twice a winner on the Korn Ferry Tour picking up his wins at the Hotel Fitness in 2015 and the Wichita Open in 2019.

He did come close in 2017 where he made the play off at the RSM Classic. He has also had a few chances this season. He was fourth at the Sanderson, twelfth at the American Express and runner up only a couple of weeks ago at the Farmers, so the game is in good shape.

Experience around here I feel is needed and he has shown improvement around here each year he has turned up 70TH/39TH/25TH so a top twenty five has been his best around here but his game has never been in better shape.

His greens in regulation is always around the mid seventy percentage and he has been gaining strokes on the greens as well of late so plenty of positives.

MATT JONES (AUS) 66/1

A seasoned professional is Matt, always get a steady performance from him week in week out.

Can he win this week? He has a great chance to finish well here with odds over 100/1 it is worth a good value each way bet.  He was tied in fourth place at the Bermuda Championship just the Friday round cost him a chance to win it that week. Like I said steady four event played in 2021 made all four cuts, just outside the top ten at the Sony and another good week at the American Express.

Over the past ten visits here he has only missed he cut twice so should be good value for us come the weekend. His best result here was in fact last year where he took the lead on the final day only to come up short and finish in fifth place.

His stats are never that impressive but the fact he scores well is what counts around here, and you will have to be able to putt well and he has been at the top end of the strokes gained putting around here for quite some time.

I feel he has another solid week ahead of him, and coming off a good Waste Management shooting four rounds in the 60’s.

FRANCESCO MOLINARI (ITA) 28/1

We have got to know Francesco and his brother very well over the years and we were present at the Celtic Manor where we were privileged enough to be granted inside the ropes access and be part of a great winning Ryder Cup team experience.

A regular top ten in the world player so what has happened over the past few years for him to drop outside the top 100 in the world rankings. 2020 was a horrid year for him with so many missed cuts was hard to get any sort of form going.

We have seen him change his caddie around the end of 2019 and 2020 to Mark Fulcher who caddied for the world number one Justin Rose for over eleven years, this for someone like Francesco was always going to be difficult and take some time to bed in. I feel now 2021 will be the year he starts to climb back up the world rankings and pick up some wins this season.

He now lives in California with the family moving there back in July last year, he is settled and now the golf is back.

He had a good Houston Open at the back end of 2020, then a top ten at the American Express he then followed that with another top ten at the Farmers closing Sunday with a 66.

I feel he will turn up this week and be a strong contender.

MATTHEW NESMITH (USA) 70/1

I was shocked to see him at such a big price this week. There are not that many better coming in this week that are hitting it as well as him, eleventh place finish here last year.

Aspects of his game that tick all the boxes around here:

  • SG Approach to the Green – 12TH PGA Tour
  • SG Tee to Green – 32ND PGA Tour
  • SG Total – 50TH PGA Tour
  • Greens in Regulation – 77.43% 446 greens hit out of 576 – 3RD PGA Tour
  • Approaches from 225-250 Yards – 11TH PGA Tour

He qualified for the FedExCup Playoffs in his rookie year last season having made 13 of 23 cuts he looks like a player with plenty of wins to come.

Best results so far this season have been seventh at the Waste Management, eighth place at the Shriners and a top fifteen at the RSM Classic.
