Winter Weary Golf Fans Set Sights on Pebble Beach Tournament This Week

It’s February and those of us who haven’t swung a club in a few months here in Canada are getting the itch. With all the new latest releases from Titleist, TaylorMade, and Ping. Most Canadian golfers are eager to hit the links. For most of us every week we’re tuning into the latest golf tournament coverage on T.V. just to get a taste. 

This week sees the Tour return to the West Coast for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Tournament. Wind swept skies with Ocean views for miles this is a tournament most of us yearning to hit the golf course look forward to watching. Although the tournament will only be using Pebble Beach and Spyglass(  Monterey Peninsula is out this year). We’ll be ok watching this week as a field of 156 will tee it up at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Unlike the previous editions there will not be 156 amateurs joining their professional partners due to the pandemic. Although we won’t see the likes of Bill Murray we will love to soak in the California coastline as we shiver at home in the cold of Canadian winter.
Last years winner Canadian Nick Taylor has a great chance to win again as he’s compiled great stats here last year and previous years to boot. It also helps to be able to putt on Poa greens which Taylor figured out last year going wire to wire for the win.
Others that might have a chance this week are the top ranked player in the field, Patrick Cantlay. He loves California, he's rested and his record is 4 for 4 at Pebble Beach.
Would love to see Jason Day finally win at Pebble Beach. He’s come close and has seven top-6 results in 11 starts. Maybe he can win like Koepka after some missed cuts. With a hot Putter anything is possible. 

Will Zalatoris is a kid destin to win soon. He has all the skills and confidence. Could this week be the week he puts 4 solid rounds together for his first W on the PGA Tour. I know golf fans up here in Canada will be tuned in to see who finishes first at Pebble Beach.
