Tournament: AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

Date: February 7-10 2013

Location: Pebble Beach, California

Course Par: 72

Past Winners: Phil Mickelson (2012), D. A. Points (2011), Dustin Johnson (2010), Dustin Johnson (2009), Steve Lowery (2008), Phil Mickelson (2007), Aaron Oberholser (2006), Phil Mickelson (2005), Vijay Singh (2004), Davis Love III (2003), Matt Gogel (2002), Davis Love III (2001), Tiger Woods (2000)

Hole to Watch: Hole # 9

The ninth hole is easily the toughest hole on this prestigious course. It is a viscous 462-yard par four and has notoriously frustrated some of the best golfers in the world. The green is right in front of the ocean and it is almost expected that golfers will play this hole safe.

Overview:

Pebble Beach is one of the most prestigious events each year on the PGA tour. Not only is PB one of the most beautiful courses in the world, but it also features a Pro-Am for some of the biggest celebrities to get a chance to hit the beach.

Stars like Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson have done well at Pebble, but lesser known golfers, like D. A. Points and Steve Lowery, have also had past success here. This shows that anyone has a chance to win this tournament, so don’t be afraid to put all your eggs into a new basket.

To help you in your fantasy golf draft this week, here are the top-10 golfers to grab for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am:
