2020 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: Field Preview

By Ryan Watson


The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am returns to the Monterey Peninsula, California’s golfing paradise, for another edition of this popular tournament. The tournament dates back to 1937 and is known for attracting celebrities to the annual pro-am. This year’s field of amateurs include Wayne Gretzky, Aaron Rodgers, and brothers Eli and Peyton Manning. The tournament takes place on 3 courses, the Monterey Peninsula Country Club, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Pebble Beach Golf Links, and has attracted another strong field to challenge for the trophy.


2019 Champion Phil Mickelson


Defending his trophy is Phil Mickelson, whose 5 wins make him and Mark O’Meara the joint most successful players at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. In 2019, it was the weather that was the biggest opponent the golfers faced. With high winds and rain dampening the event and causing multiple delays, Mickelson and a number of other golfers were forced to finish the event on Monday. Mickelson began the final round 3 strokes behind Paul Casey, but after shooting -7 overcame Casey who finished the round with a -3 and a share of second place.  


Field Preview

Mickelson is the oldest winner of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am and he will look to break his own record this week. Mickelson, 49, is famous for how he takes care of himself and doesn’t look like slowing down any time soon. In his way is a strong field including last year’s runner up Paul Casey. 2017 champion Jordan Spieth will also be in the field looking to add another win to his impressive collection. In addition, Dustin Johnson and Jason Day are set to tee off. The weather will likely play a part in proceedings, with  any of a number of players having a realistic chance to take home the trophy, FedEx Cup points, and a big paycheck.
