Fantasy Golf Picks For The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am

This week's PGA Tour stop lands us on the Monterey Peninsula in sunny California with the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. It will be played over 3 courses: Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill and Poppy Hills. Spyglass is considered the toughest course, Pebble Beach the "classic" with the views and the character, and Poppy Hills the best chance for some birdies.

The courses are long by today's stnadards but the pros will have to be patient as it's a Pro-Am and there could be some long rounds. The weather looks good but you never know in California. A player will have to hit greens this week to win. Players will get to play 3 rounds and the cut then comes so some guy might win if he can free wheel it a bit. Here are picks for the week.

Phil Mickelson-defending Champion would love to win again after narrowly missing out last week.
Mike Weir- after a WD he had a so-so week at the FBR, his swing looks great and he'll do well on the tight layouts.
Daniel Chopra- after a win already this year and his success at Pebble(T11, T5, T16,T25) why not?
Kevin Sutherland- this guy has been pretty hot lately with a T13 and T4 in his last two stats. This California native was 2nd to Phil last year.
Vijay Singh- still a work in progress w. VJ but his track record here can't be overlooked.
Jim Furyk- good record at Pebble should be in the running.
Brandt Snedeker- just a hunch this course should set up well for him has only a T36 here, we'll see.
