Predicting the Pebble Beach Pro-Am

| by

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is the most unique event on tour for a couple reasons. For one, it’s at Pebble Beach.

An intuitive grasp of this dynamic has helped earn Phil Mickelson hundreds of millions of dollars over the two decades since his PGA Tour debut.
