The AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is another multiple course tournament that is played over three tracks in the same area of California. Pebble Beach is one of the most famous courses in the world and is located on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.
Like any course by the sea, wind can be a huge factor but a par 72 course at 6,972 is vulnerable to low scoring in light breezes. Pebble Beach hosts the fourth round after 54 holes because every golfer plays the three courses in rotation. Sixty pros progress to the last 18 holes on Sunday
Spyglass Hill Golf Course (Par 72, 7,041 yards) and Monterey Peninsula Club (Par 71, 6,957 yards) host the first three rounds with Pebble. The involvement of amateurs and relatively undemanding set-ups makes for the potential of many eagle and birdie opportunities for the professionals.
Over the last six years the average winning score is 18 under. With three tests, identifying the key skills is complicated but taken overall the following attributes are important in identifying our AT & T Pebble Beach Pro-Am picks:

2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Picks
Justin Rose (+2500)
Rose is one of only three major champions in the top 30 in the betting with Jordan Spieth and Jason Day. The 2013 US Open winner and former world number one is beginning to show signs of the ability that made him the best player in the world at his peak. His last of 10 PGA Tour wins was the Farmers Insurance Open in 2019 and he was sixth in that tournament last week.
This is Rose’s first appearance in the event for five years but he was sixth in 2016 so has some course form. He famously finished fourth in the British Open as a 17-yesr-old amateur in 1998. He has a solid record on the links courses that always stage that major championship. Rose looks like a winner in waiting and his form figures suggest he could be the first British winner of this tournament.
Best Value Top 10 Pick
Jason Day (+2000)
There are always long rounds when those who do not play golf for a living will take more shots and take their time to produce a reasonable standard of golf. A player must have the temperament of delays and five hours and more on the course. Contenders must strike a balance between focusing on their game and encouraging their partners. Day has that personality and has made the cut in all of his 12 appearances, including 10 top 15 finishes.
Potential Sleeper Pick
Vaughan Taylor (+15000)
Taylor does not look an obvious pick according to the betting market. The odds reflect his recent form and he is at 416 in the world rankings. We are not suggesting he can win this week but any former winner has an affinity with a tournament. Taylor won the event in 2016 as an alternate and made the cut in the Sony Open, his only outing this season, with four rounds at or below 70.
