Foursomes rotate to MPCC Shore Course, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Pebble Beach Golf Links Thursday through Saturday.

A "Walk"-Off Champion at the 2014 AT&T Pro-Am View Story

Jimmy Walker

It took 188 tournaments and more than nine years for Jimmy Walker to win his first PGA TOUR event. The Texas native has now won three in the 2013-2014 season, the latest coming at the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

After his third round on the Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course, Walker said that regardless of the lead he would have going into the final round, his goal would be to "go out and hit good shots, and play good golf and see what happens."

What happened was Walker's third victory in his first eight starts this season, a feat achieved by only three golfers in history—Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and David Duval. It didn't come easy, though, as Walker carded five bogeys on Sunday, four more than he had in the previous three rounds. Nonetheless, the Baylor University alumnus sunk a five-foot par putt to capture the victory at Pebble Beach with a final score of 11-under 276, one shot better than two-time champion Dustin Johnson and Jim Renner.

The drama, however, wasn't just contained to the professional competition. Amateur John Harkey Jr. closed out the Pro-Am team competition title on the 18th green at Pebble Beach Golf Links alongside his professional partner Renner. Their team shot 66 or better for all four rounds in challenging conditions across the Monterey Peninsula.

In the end, it was another incredible week at Pebble Beach Resorts. Spectators lined the fairways of Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and numerous visitors enjoyed the hospitality and service of The Lodge at Pebble Beach and The Inn at Spanish Bay. Millions more watched on television throughout the world. Thank you to all the PGA TOUR professionals, world-renowned celebrities and special amateur participants, as well as the volunteers, employees and the terrific fans. We look forward to seeing you next year for the 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Gridiron Greats, Hard Court Heroes and More Join the Legendary Tradition View Story

Chevron Shoot-Out

Since it opened in 1919, Pebble Beach Golf Links has been a grand stage for history's greatest golfers. From Jones and Hogan, Nicklaus and Watson, and Woods and Mickelson, past championships at Pebble Beach have scripted the history of golf lore. It's no wonder, then, that the greatest athletes from other sports never miss the opportunity to play in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

As they're often the face of the franchise, many star NFL quarterbacks routinely make Pebble Beach an annual trip. In the past, Tony Romo and Drew Brees have teed it up along the Pacific coastline. This year, three-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady, five-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning, 2011 NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith will follow in their footsteps, trading the gridiron for the green. Former football stars Herman Edwards and Harris Barton, along with coaches Bill Belichick and Brian Kelly, will also be part of the action.

But it's so much more than pigskin at Pebble Beach. In addition to the Chevron Shoot-Out—featuring players from both the San Francisco 49ers and the San Francisco Giants—pitcher Matt Cain steps off the mound and onto the tee. Andy Roddick and James Blake take their rivalry from the tennis court to the fairways. Wayne Gretzky, known simply as "The Great One," will play alongside his future son-in-law and two-time tournament winner Dustin Johnson. Finally, surfing legend and 11-time world champion Kelly Slater will only watch the waves off Carmel Bay while enjoying his other passion—golf!

Fans often only get a glimpse of these star athletes on their respective fields, courts or rinks, but for one week each year, they can all be found on the pristine courses in Pebble Beach. All are here for fun, charitable giving and a little bit of competition. But instead of worries over tackles and cross-checking, birdies and pars will be on their mind!

The Greatest Charitable Tradition in Golf View Story

3M Celebrity Challenge

Since its inception, the PGA Tour has generated more than $2 billion in charitable giving through its numerous events, with more than $133 million raised in 2013 alone. The annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am has had a significant impact on that figure, starting with Bing Crosby's original "Clambake" in the 1930s.

Last year, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am continued its legendary tradition, raising more than $10 million for local charities through the Monterey Peninsula Foundation. Since the event's inception in 1937, the tournament has surpassed more than $110 million in charitable donations, one of only two PGA Tour events to achieve that milestone.

The Chevron Shoot-Out and 3M Celebrity Challenge are known for their popular participants, but each will generate $100,000 for tournament charities. In addition, the Birdies for Charity program will continue to donate money to participating charities for every birdie made during the competitive rounds of the event. Since the program began in 2007, more than $2.2 million has been raised for Northern California organizations and their causes. Chevron's Eagles for Education also donates $5,000 for every eagle carded by the PGA Tour professionals during the tournament.

While the tournament generates outstanding contributions to charity, so does the Pebble Beach Company Foundation. The philanthropic arm of Pebble Beach Company has impacted the lives of more than 10,000 children in Monterey County for nearly four decades, funding youth education programs each year spanning the arts, sciences, sports, technology and environment that inspire the future of local youth in the community. In 2013, the Foundation supported more than 75 local nonprofit youth programs and provided $100,000 in college scholarships. The Pebble Beach Company Foundation was also named the "2013 Philanthropic Corporation of the Year" by the National Philanthropy Day Committee for the Central Coast. The award celebrates outstanding individual, foundation and corporate philanthropists that demonstrate an exceptional commitment to the community as a whole in Monterey and Santa Cruz counties.

Pebble Beach Resorts and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am combine to make a renowned contribution to charity both on and off the course. Regardless of the final scores on Sunday, everybody wins during this historic tournament.

Age Defying at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am View Story

Jordan Spieth

Four years ago, Jordan Spieth played in his first PGA TOUR event and finished tied for 16th. It was a fitting finish for the Texas native, who was only 16-years-old at the time. Since he was born, Spieth has had a knack for early accomplishments. He won the U.S. Junior Amateurs twice before the age of 18, became the sixth-youngest player to make a PGA TOUR cut, helped his University of Texas Longhorns capture the NCAA championship in 2012, and earned the low amateur title in the 2012 U.S. Open. Needless to say, Spieth is off to a historic start to his young golfing career.

This week, Jordan Spieth returns to the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am for the second consecutive year, finishing at 8 under and tying for 22nd place at the 2013 event. Last season, though, golf fans around the world saw Spieth record nine top-10 finishes and his first career PGA TOUR victory—on the way to becoming the 2013 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year. Coming back to Pebble Beach, Spieth has different expectations this year and is excited to be back on the Monterey Peninsula.

"It's got to be the most unbelievable place for golf in the world," he said after Wednesday's practice round. "All three courses are magnificent and there's still another five or six courses that are on the peninsula that I would like to play some day that I hear are pretty incredible themselves."

New courses and new challenges await the 20-year-old Spieth, but "incredible" is a good way to describe this tournament and a player who embodies a youth movement in professional golf that is taking the PGA TOUR by storm.

Follow Jordan Spieth throughout the week, as he will be playing alongside musicians Jake Owen and Joe Don Rooney, as well as fellow professional Kevin Chappell.

GMac is Back at Pebble Beach View Story

Graeme McDowell

The day was June 20, 2010. The U.S. Open champion looks to the sky, raises his putter and celebrates his first major championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Outlasting stellar players including Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and Dustin Johnson, Graeme McDowell became the first European golfer to win the U.S. Open in forty years. The Northern Irishman survived challenging Sunday conditions, finishing as the only player even par or better.

This week, the man fondly referred to as "GMac" returns to Pebble Beach for the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Adding to the excitement, McDowell will play with his father Kenny in the team competition. Fans will remember the duo on the 18th green at Pebble Beach Golf Links after the champion's final 12-inch winning putt, in which Kenny said to Graeme, "You're something, kid."

Something indeed. Since his U.S. Open victory at Pebble Beach, McDowell has claimed three more European Tour victories, as well as another PGA Tour win. He is currently ranked No. 17 in the world and will look to improve that standing on the difficult tests of Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and the Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course. History says he might be up to the challenge.

The Scary Sixth at Spyglass Hill Golf Course View Story

Spyglass Hill Golf Course sixth hole

Through the first five holes at Spyglass Hill Golf Course, players at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am are treated to stunning ocean views, sweeping sand dunes and tight fairways lined with ice plant and native foliage. The sixth hole, though, starts them on a challenging and relentless journey through a narrow, tree-lined expedition filled with demanding drives, long approaches and treacherous putts. The difficulty of Spyglass Hill is well documented and well known, and it all begins with "Israel Hands."

Taking its name from a sure-handed coxswain in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island, the sixth hole at Spyglass Hill demands similar acumen from golfers navigating its uphill layout from tee to green. With bunkers in play on both the left and right sides of the fairway, players need to be both straight and long to have any chance of a birdie putt. Three more bunkers and a large, undulating green make par a lofty goal for wayward approaches and ensuing chip shots.

In 2013, the sixth hole was the most difficult in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. It yielded only four birdies in the 156 rounds played by PGA Tour professionals, giving up 57 bogeys or worse. Overall, the hole played to a 4.365 stroke average and was the 22nd hardest hole on the PGA Tour in 2013.

History has shown that Spyglass Hill offers the most difficult test throughout the week during this legendary tournament, so keep your eyes on the leaderboard as your favorite players venture down its narrow fairways. Those that avoid trouble and find the occasional birdie opportunity will have the best chance of hoisting the trophy on Sunday afternoon.
