GOLF LEGENDS VISIT PEBBLE BEACH RESORTS FOR CALLAWAY PEBBLE BEACH INVITATIONAL NOVEMBER 13 - 18, 2012
“The Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational is a world-class showcase of golf’s rising stars, top players and decorated legends,” said Pebble Beach Company Chief Executive Officer Bill Perocchi. “Add the breathtaking, but challenging setting of three of the country’s most timeless public golf courses and it is easy to see why this event has become such a fan favorite.”
The four-day event, played on Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Del Monte Golf Course features 81 professionals including former winners Mark Brooks (1992, 2002 and 2009) and John Mallinger (2010), as well as PGA Tour champions Jonas Blixt, Scott Stallings, Bryce Molder and 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am winner D.A. Points. Champions Tour participants include 2011 U.S. Senior Open Championship winner Olin Browne, 2011 British Senior Open Championship winner Russ Cochran and three-time major championship winner Fred Funk.
Two World Golf Hall of Fame members also return to Pebble Beach. Annika Sorenstam, winner of ten major championships and 72 wins on the LPGA Tour, joins Santa Cruz native Juli Inkster, who amassed seven major wins and 31 LPGA victories in her career. The legendary pair will accompany other LPGA competitors including Mina Harigae, Anna Rawson and Cheyenne Woods, the niece of 2000 U.S. Open champion Tiger Woods. A dynamic field of 324 amateurs will play alongside the professionals for the entirety of the event.
“Amateur players in this event have the unique opportunity to tee it up with their favorite players,” said Pebble Beach Company Executive Vice President of Golf and Retail RJ Harper. “To also have a chance at winning a championship here at Pebble Beach is a dream come true for each of them.”
Last year’s Callaway PBI champion Harrison Frazar will defend his title after carding a 9-under 279 in 2011, one stroke better than runners-up Matt Bettencourt and Cameron Tringale. Tournament rounds will be played on all three courses simultaneously from Thursday, November 15 through Saturday, November 17, and at Pebble Beach Golf Links for the final round on Sunday, November 18. Spectators are welcome free of charge all days and are invited to walk on the fairways with the players.
The Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational proudly supports the local charities of the Kiwanis Club of Monterey and the AT&T Pebble Beach Junior Golf Association.
