It’s always a special week on the PGA Tour when the players head to Pebble Beach for one of the best pro-am’s of the year. Not only is it fantastic to see celebrities from all walks of life go toe to toe with the worlds best golfers, but there isn’t a better setting for this to take place. Pebble Beach is a landmark course in the world and always takes one’s breath away. Set on the cliffs of the Pacific coastline, every view makes for a postcard moment. It measures 6, 816 yards and and plays as a par 72. It isn’t the longest track around and gives players a good chance to score with accurate iron shots. Last year it was outsider Vaughn Taylor that shot a 65 on the last day to beat Phil Mickelson to the title. Taylor hadn’t even been in the field until the Monday before the tournament. It was a great display that showed a huge amount of courage and character. It seemed a one off performance though and one that would unlikely be repeated again this week. The competition is just too stiff and defending a tournament in golf is one of the harder things you can try and do successfully in life. That said, Hideki Matsuyama showed that it can be done as he blitzed the field in Phoenix last week.
Jordan Speith (+800 BetOnline.ag)
Speith is coming off a top ten finish in Phoenix last week as he finished for a tie of 9th. The young Texan is edging ever closer to his first win of the year and played some exquisite golf last week in the desert. Pebble Beach may just provide the perfect opportunity for him to kick start his season as he keeps one eye on The Masters.
Webb Simpson (+4000 BetOnline.ag)
Simpson came back into form last week with a bang. Finishing just behind Hideki Matsuyama for second place. He looked back to the Simpson of old. He had suffered for a while after the ban of the anchored putter. He seems to have comes to term with the shorter putter and his performances are bearing fruit now.
Jason Day (+1200 BetOnline.ag)
The best golfer in the world has had a slow start to the year and will want to pick up the pace with a world class performance at Pebble Beach. It is just a matter of time before Jason Day blows the field away with a performance befitting of the worlds best player.
