Needless to say this event is one of the more difficult events to handicap – playing with non-pros for the inevitable six hour rounds on three different tracks makes the playing ground more level than most events the pros play.
It will be wet in California this week which has me leaning toward big hitters a little more than usual in this event.
So who should we keep an eye on this week – I hit on Hideki Matsuyama at +1100 last week so I will aim to pick the winner two weeks in a row.
2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Favorites:
Dustin Johnson +800
Somehow missed the cut in his last start and will be looking to avenge that performance this week. He has six career top 5s in this track including two wins and will be out to impress father-in-law Wayne Gretzky again this week. DJ’s current form is a tad troubling – his sheer talent makes him the co-favorite however.
Jordan Spieth +800
Has finished inside the top 10 in his last four starts overall including a T9 last week at the WMPO. His record here is pretty good – four starts with two top 10 finishes. He somehow hasn’t won on TOUR in nine months but enters this week leading the TOUR in a host of categories including GIR. Spieth is an accurate ball-striker who seems to be putting it all together. He’s overdue and should contend this week.
Jason Day +1200
Enters off an unfathomable missed cut at Torrey Pines – a course that seems to suit his game perfectly! His back has been an issue yet again but he has shown some decent form so far this new season – a T12 at Kapalua is further proof. He has five career top 15s in this tournament and with the rust all-but-gone, most are expecting a good week from Day.
Justin Rose +1200
Seems to finally be healthy after injuries plagued him almost all of last season. Need further proof? How about a solo second at Waialae and T4 at Torrey Pines?
He finished T6 in this event last year and with some serious momentum on his side entering this edition, Rose is expected to be in the mix Sunday.
2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Contenders:
Brandt Snedeker +1600
Two-time winner of this event held the lead after 54 holes last time out at the Farmers en route to a T9. He holds the tournament record here when he finished with a 22 Under score here in 2015.
Track history is obviously on his side – finishing inside the top 20 in three of his last four starts proves that his current form is pretty good too. Sneds loves this track and should do well again this week.
Jon Rahm +1600
This Spaniard rookie is taking the TOUR by storm. He won the Farmers’ against a top quality field, he showed his resolve by finishing T16 last week in Phoenix – a tournament he was once again top 5 in strokes gained: off-the-tee.
He has shown an ability to go low in his young career – he is sixth this season in birdie average and he hasn’t shown any sign so far of being flustered on the biggest stages. Rahm has serious skills and could be a factor in his tournament debut.
Phil Mickelson +1600
Four time winner of this tournament finished second here as recently as last year – this tournament has consistently been one of his most successful stops on TOUR.
He has played in three events this year and has finished inside the top 25 in all including a T16 lat last week’s WMPO. He has eaten this track up in the past and enters this year in some pretty good form. Mickelson will be heard from this week – almost guaranteed.
J.B. Holmes +3300
Despite some just OK recent form (top 35s at Torrey Pines and at Scottsdale) Holmes makes the list thanks to a good track record at Pebble Beach. He has five top 20 finishes in this event including a T2 in 2010.
We all know about his length off the tee but what opened a few eyes last week was his improved short game. Holmes loves this unique event and seems due for a breakthrough.
2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Sleepers (+5000 or higher):
Jim Furyk +5000
Was last seen finishing T6 at Seaside. He has played this event a stunning 19 times and has made the cut all but twice. His T7 in 2015 was just one of five top 10s here. If he can shake the rust early Furyk could contend. He’s certainly worth a look at +5000.
J J Spaun +5500
Spaun isn’t sneaking up on anybody anymore! He has been sensational the last couple of weeks – a T9 at the Farmers was followed by an eye-opening T4 at last week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Spaun is putting the lights out right and has proven to be a factor every time he tees it up lately.
Adam Hadwin +6000
This Canadian kid is only a few weeks removed from a 59 in an event that also took place on three different tracks. He finished T12 last week and is on a serious upward trend.
Hadwin is going to break through at some point in time – this week could be it.
2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Picks:
The pick this week is Brandt Snedeker at +1600. He has won this event two of the last four years and his current form suggests that he is in line for yet another big week.
The sleeper is rookie JJ Spaun at +5500. His current form is just too hard to ignore.
