Snow at the Crosby
Pebble Beach Golf Links
From its earliest days in 1947, the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am (originally called "The Crosby Clambake" or, more informally, "The Crosby") has been known for three things: great golf, crowd-pleasing celebrities and unpredictable weather. The rain and winds that often visit the tournament are as much a part of the championship's character as the competition they often interrupt.
But no one expected the cause of the final round's delay in 1962: snow. This was the first time in 40 years it had snowed on the Monterey Peninsula, prompting golf pro Jimmy Demeret to make the famous remark, "I know I got loaded last night, but how did I end up in Squaw Valley?" (Squaw Valley is a ski resort in California). The tournament was completed on the following day; it has rarely snowed at Pebble Beach since.
