The California swing is in progress, and with Phoenix and Los Angeles out somewhere far off and a spine chiller at Torrey Pines in the rearview reflect, the current week’s inclusion goes to a famous green with a field that misses the mark on piece of pop. There are still a lot of storylines, yet the Saudi International has swiped the absolute greatest players on the planet, and that implies the PEBBLE BEACH Pro-Am harvests the results of all that cash tossed around at the highest point of the world.
How about we investigate the current week’s challenge with chances gave through Caesars Sportsbook.
How to watch AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2022 live
Event: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am | Dates: Feb. 3-6
Location: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, Monterey Peninsula Country Club – Pebble Beach, Calif.
Par: 72/72/71 | Purse: $8.7 million
Zalatoris bounced: Last week’s runner-up and one of the favorites this week, Will Zalatoris, was a scratch on Tuesday after he tested positive for COVID-19. He had a real “I’m going to back up that near-miss with a victory at Pebble” vibe going, and I was going to pick him. Regardless, the landscape of the event has changed, and Patrick Cantlay’s odds to win as the favorite went to 15/2 following the news.
Jason Day resurgence: I’m interested to see if Day’s top 10 last week is a harbinger (he said afterward he could win five or 10 times in a year?!) or a one-off that simply gets him back into the top 100 in the Official World Golf Rankings. He’s thrived at Pebble in the past, but his 2.78 strokes gained per round last week at Torrey was his best number since fall 2020. It was genuine fun to see him mixing it up with the top of the board, and he did a lot of it the way he used to do it — with bombs off the tee and a scorching hot putter (Day was essentially the best putter in the world for most of 2015-2017). Hopefully we see more of the same again this weekend.
Spieth? After gaining strokes on approach shots in all but one measured tournament in 2021 leading into the Tour Championship, Spieth has now lost strokes on approach in his last four, and over the last 20 rounds he’s 56th in this field in strokes gained tee to green. Again, this is not a great field, and Spieth is not in the top 50 in a very important category. The flip side of that is the sample size is small and he’s been awesome at Pebble over the course of his career (of players in the field with 15 or more rounds played here, only Jason Day and Patrick Cantlay have been better). I can’t take credit for noticing this trend — my colleague, Rick Gehman, first pointed it out — but now it’s all I’m thinking about heading into Pebble week.
Saudi steal: The field at the Saudi International includes Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Xander Schauffele, Tony Finau, Patrick Reed, Tommy Fleetwood, Paul Casey, Sergio Garcia and Phil Mickelson, which is a long way from Pebble, which has just three of the top 20 players in the world. To receive a release from the PGA Tour to play in the Saudi International, these players had to promise to play in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am at some point. The future is not this week, however, and one of the formerly preeminent non-majors on the Tour suffers as a result of the fact that so many players at the Saudi International are receiving eye-popping appearance fees.

2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Preview
Phil Mickelson returns to the event he won a year ago, become the oldest winner in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am’s storied history at 48. Mickelson shot two rounds of 65 and finished the four-round tournament at 19-under.
Mickelson thought the victory was going to propel him into a great year, but instead he stumbled, only finishing in the top 20 one time the rest of the way.
“After I won last year, I knew I was going to go out and just crush the rest of the year,” Mickelson told The Associated Press “And the rest of the year crushed me.
“I was really excited about how I was playing. And then I get on the golf course and I start not seeing what I want to have happen but more what I don’t want to have happen,” Mickelson added. “My inability to kind of control my thoughts was getting the best of me the first few weeks. And I was able to identify the problem and then fix it and start to control my thoughts a little bit better, control my visualization, and I hit a lot of good shots thereafter.”
Mickelson finished tied for third last week in Saudi Arabia on the European Tour, behind Dustin Johnson and winner Graeme McDowell. In Phoenix last weekend, Webb Simpson captured the title at the Waste Management Open, edging Tony Finau in a playoff.
Along with Mickelson former champions that will be in the field this week include Johnson, Brandt Snedeker, and Jordan Spieth. The tournament takes place on four different golf courses: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore. The total field is made up of 156 professionals and 156 amateurs.
