We’re back again this week for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and it’s officially turned into a fight to not come in last place in fantasy golf. Let’s just say my fantasy golf picks have been straight crap lately.
Last week, at the Farmer’s Insurance Open, my fantasy golf picks consisted of three players who didn’t even make the cut. My fourth, Jimmy Walker, kind of fell flat on Sunday and couldn’t get anything going. Long story short, I scored a total of 83 points.
Ah yes, Pebble Beach. The most scenic golf course in all of the world. There’s actually a three course rotation, between Spyglass, Monterey Peninsula and Pebble Beach. Thursday – Saturday the players will be rotation between these three courses and then Sunday will be back to Pebble.
Get ready for 9-hour rounds and the amateurs hacking it around. But that’s the fun of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, right?
Jimmy Walker is defending, and he is also playing this week after a T-7 last week at Torrey. It’s going to be so hard to pick against Jimmy this week, but I don’t think I am going to take him with my fantasy picks.

Nick Watney hung in there last week at Torrey, finishing T-7. Born and raised in the Sacramento area I think Watney will get back in the winners circle in 2015 at some point and what better place to do it then this week at Pebble.
I can’t even tell you where Jim Furyk has been the past six months. He’s probably been doing whatever he wants whenever he wants. Maybe he’s stealing Steve Stricker’s game plan and playing much less this season. Either way, this guy always seems to be near the top each week he plays. Let’s see if he can bang out some points for the fantasy team in his first event back.
Dustin loves this course, hoisting the trophy here twice since 2009. This is his second tournament back after his “leave of absence” so he’s probably still trying to get back in the groove of playing.
Maybe he’s tired from his newborn baby last week, or maybe he’s pumped up ready to win for his second child. Hunter Mahan has finished in top-20 at Pebble his last four events and if he can sink some putts this week I know he can be near the top.
Okay so there’s no video this week. Maybe it’s a superstition thing or maybe it’s a lazy thing for this week. Since I began the videos back for Humana Challenge, I’ve gone down in the rankings. We’re going to try something new this week and not do the video.
