Finally, a dream that came true.   No celebrities / clowns.   I will watch it this year.   

Hot take:  I’m stoked to just get some plain golf coverage at Pebble this year...  We get to sit back and enjoy without the nonsense.   Probably going to bring in a really good field, because it is no

That event has been nothing since James Garner quit playing in it!   This is a favorite story (and yes, very wrxer - "so I punched the guy, was I wrong?", lol).  He won the civil trial so no

Thank god, watching rich middle aged/old men try and play golf is not something we should be subjected to, hopefully a bit more coverage of pebble beach itself

This is a favorite story (and yes, very wrxer - "so I punched the guy, was I wrong?", lol).  He won the civil trial so no, not found "not guilty", plaintiff lost.  Hey plaintiff, leave your name and number at the beep, I'll get back to ya'!

Field looks weak, but maybe people are still deciding whether to commit? Hopefully leaving the amateurs out compels more top pros to join: http://www.attpbgolf.com/players/

 

Phil Michelson notably not on the list, despite winning a couple years ago and getting close last year. Although I'm not a BDC fan, I'd like to see if he can drive 2 (par 5) with the wind. Note that the hole is a par 4 in the US Open, unlike this tourney.

 

Edit: It's a longshot, but might we see TW join? I know he hasn't played this event in forever, but removing the amateurs makes the event more suited for him. Maybe if he feels good after playing Torey then he'll commit. This will be TW's last chance to play Pebble in a tournament round for a long while.

Eh, #2 green is about the size of a Denny's pancake. Guarded by trees to the left and right and the waste area in front. 

 

I'd bet on him winding up either in #3 fairway or someone's back yard.

I get the tradition of the Pro am there, but it's time for a change.  Either cut the TV time dedicated to them by 90% in the future, or make the ProAM tournament a Thursday and Friday thing only.  I'd actually be fine with that, I rarely tune in to regular events during the week, but I'd like some quality golf only on the weekends.

A couple of small items.... Phil is in the field at Pebble and Tiger has not committed to play Torrey.

Other than that, solid post.
