The 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Quality over quantity. That’s what we got in the 78th playing of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. While the elements had their say in the form of a cancelled final round, there was no raining on the parade of Wyndham Clark who claimed his third PGA TOUR victory in spectacular fashion.

The buzz was palpable early in tournament week with a “big fight feel” as all eyes turned towards Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course for the PGA TOUR’s second signature event of the season. Major championships are nothing new here and players noted how the week had a similar aura to when the U.S. Open was contested here in 2019.

Tee sheets were brimming with household names on Monday and Tuesday as the world’s best refamiliarized themselves with two of the most well-known courses in the world. Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas were amongst the first players out on Monday enjoying a sun splashed walk around Pebble Beach Golf Links.


Fresh off a win in Dubai, Rory McIlroy made his way around the iconic track on Tuesday alongside Ryder Cup teammate and a Dubai winner in his own right, Tommy Fleetwood. Just a mile up the road the youth movement of professional golf was on full display as Ludvig Aberg joined Nick Dunlap for an afternoon amongst the shadows of Spyglass with the talk of the golf world, Nick Dunlap gearing up for his professional debut.


While several players were making their first appearance since that 2019 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach, Jordan Spieth returned to a place that has a special place in his heart. Safe to say that he’s earned a few fans on the Peninsula but perhaps none more so than this young spectator.

As players made their final preparations on Wednesday, the light, euphoric feel of practice rounds at Pebble Beach began to shift towards an intense focus on joining the list of iconic players to have won here. Behind the first tee, etched into stone, are the names of each and every major champion and winner of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.


With the NFL season coming to a head this weekend at the Super Bowl, it was Pebble Beach who had the greatest quarterbacks per capita with the likes of Tom Brady, Steve Young, Aaron Rodgers and Josh Allen in the field.

While Brady’s opening tee shot may not have been what he had in mind, the G.O.A.T. is welcome back anytime with a breakfast ball on the house. At the conclusion of amateur play on Friday afternoon, it was Rory McIlroy who added another piece of hardware to his trophy case alongside partner Jeff Rhodes.

As the amateurs cleared the stage on Friday evening, an ominous forecast awaited the pros as they geared up for a heavyweight fight over the weekend. While Thomas Detry and Ludivig Aberg began Saturday atop the leaderboard, they and the entire field hardly had a chance to blink before Wyndham Clark climbed the leaderboard after recording the lowest nine-hole score since 1983 at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The reigning U.S. Open champion continued to forge ahead from there, carding one of the most exciting bogeys you will ever see on the par-3 12th.

Six holes later he rewrote the Pebble Beach history books, two-putting for birdie on the par-5 18th for a course record 60.


Aberg pulled within one-shot setting up what would have been an epic Sunday showdown… however the forecast that many had braced for came to fruition. Players like Ben Griffin turned in their golf clubs for weatherman duties and as fate would have it, the last shot played in the 2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was on Saturday afternoon.

This did little to dampen the celebration around Clark’s victory. The day where he began 23rd on the leaderboard proved to be a career defining round that earned him a piece of Pebble Beach history and a victory over one of the strongest fields that Pebble Beach has ever seen. In spite of severe weather, upon learning he was officially the champion, Clark went to a place rich with golf history and well equipped for a championship celebration.

As the storms began to weaken and the reality of a weather shortened tournament sunk in, Clark joined a group of media members in the Fairway One building, just steps away from the cottages where Jim Nantz presented him with the iconic crystal trophy. This closed out a week that could not have been scripted and had to be seen to be believed.
