Watch The Winds At Pebble

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am uses 3 courses in rotation from Thursday to Saturday (Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill & Poppy Hill). After play concludes on Saturday, the field gets ‘cut’ down to 60 players. Play resumes on Sunday, with Pebble Beach as the course for the championship.

These poor Tour Professionals. They have to go from a frigid Scottsdale desert to a windy No-Cal coastline. But such is winter golf on the PGA Tour and every last pro has to play in it.

However, this week looks fairly pleasant, at least for Pebble Beach. Latest forecasts call for favorable conditions throughout the event, temps in the mid-60s with winds around 5-8 miles per hour.

Club selection is still important on two notable par-3s at Pebble, holes #7 and #17. #7 is only 106 yards from the box, but if the wind should gust, you’re going to see a lot of Pros go back into their bag for a club change. The 178-yard 17th is a deceptive hole and the grandstands can hinder what the wind is actually doing. Any ball down the left side runs the risk of being ocean bound.
