The PGA Tour’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am begins this Thursday!
Before I dive into my favorite golf bets let’s discuss the unique format of this tournament and take a look at a few key facts that I think are of significance to golf bettors this week.
The 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am will take place in Pebble Beach, California. This tournament has traditionally been a pro-am which has been contested on three different golf courses. However, this year, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, no amateur golfers will participate in this event. Additionally, this year’s event will only be played on two golf courses, not three.
The 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am will be played on Pebble Beach Golf Links and the Spyglass Hill Golf Course. The entire field of 156 golfers will play both tracks over the course of the first two rounds. Upon completion of the second round, a cut will occur. The top 65 golfers and ties will move on to the weekend. Pebble Beach Golf Links will be the only course utilized for play in the last two rounds of this tournament.
Pebble Beach Golf Links hosted the 2019 U.S. Open.
A score of 17 under par or better has won the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am every year since 2015.
The last nine winners of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am ranked, on average, fourth in GIR (greens in regulation) relative to the field the year they won this golf tournament.
Now let's turn our attention to my betting recommendations for this week's PGA Tour event.
Here are two golfers to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.
Francesco Molinari +250 - The 38 year old Italian arrives at this week's PGA Tour event on the heels of two consecutive top ten finishes, including an eighth place finish at the American Express three weeks ago. By the way, if you are concerned that Molinari has no previous event history, don't be. Why? Well, Molinari finished 16th at the 2019 U.S. Open. You may recall that I mentioned earlier in this article that the Pebble Beach Golf Links hosted the 2019 U.S. Open.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2021 AT&T Pebble Pro-Am field, in the last eight rounds played on the PGA Tour, Molinari ranks second in strokes gained tee to green, second in strokes gained ball striking, second in bogey avoidance, and sixth in GIR (greens in regulation).
Jordan Spieth +275 - The American has played the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am every year since 2013. In those eight events just mentioned, Spieth has an impressive seven top 22 finishes, including a win at the 2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. I also like the fact that Spieth arrives at this week's event in good form. Spieth finished fourth at last week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.
