After a thrilling conclusion in San Diego last week, the PGA Tour will head north along the coast of California for the 81st edition of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Contested since 1937, the Pebble Beach Pro-Am boasts not just an elite group of golfers, but a plethora of celebrities, who will be playing alongside the golfers.

The breathtaking views, alone, make this one of the most anticipated events of the year.

Among those most likely to leave Pebble with a coveted glass trophy are the following:


10. Kevin Kisner

Kisner has not performed well in his eight starts at Pebble – just a single top 25 (T10, 2017), but enters in top form with a T3 and T8 on the Aloha Swing. In just five starts on the 2021-22 season, the 37-year-old is ranked No. 41 in the FedEx Cup race… Kisner’s precision should come in handy at the short but tricky layout: he ranks 2nd on the tour in fairways hit, and 6th in greens hit.

Odds: 50-1
World Rank: 36th
Field Rank: 6th
Last Six: 3, 8, MC, 54, MC, 66
Best at Pebble: 10th (2017)


9. Matt Fitzpatrick

The recent form is definitely there for the 27-year-old Englishman with a win and runner-up in his five most recent worldwide starts… That top form would seemingly deserve a higher power ranking, particularly for a world-class player ranked No. 25 in the world, and 4th in the field. But the former Northwestern star’s history at Pebble (T60, MC) is unimpressive, which lowers our outlook.

Odds: 33-1
World Rank: 25th
Field Rank: 4th
Last Six: 12, 2, 64, 30, 1, 20
Best at Pebble: 60th (2020)


8. Cameron Tringale

The world No. 49 has been knocking on the door to the winner’s circle since last season, and enters off a T3 at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open… Sitting 7th in the FedExCup race, Tringlae is the only player ranked in the top-10 who’s winless… Finished T7 in the most recent edition (2021) of the Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Odds: 25-1
World Rank: 49th
Field Rank: 9th
Last Six: 3, MC, 7, MC, 2, 59
Best at Pebble: 7th (2021)


7. Maverick McNealy

The former Stanford star enters off five straight top-30 finishes, and appears ready for his first stroll to the winner’s circle… McNealy is a true horse for the course with a T5 (2020) and runner-up (2021) in his last two starts at Pebble Beach… He currently ranks 4th on the tour in scoring average (69.75).

Odds: 22-1
World Rank: 72nd
Field Rank: 19th
Last Six: 30, 27, 19, 11, 25, 38
Best at Pebble: 2nd (2021)


6. Seamus Power

The world No. 50 enters off four-straight top-15 finishes, highlighted by a pair of top-5s… The 34-year-old Irishman enjoyed a breakout season in 2021 which included his first PGA Tour win at the Barbasol Championship… He has not played particularly well at Pebble, posting T38 and T39 against two missed-cuts, but that was before Power became a top-tier player.

Odds: 25-1
World Rank: 50th
Field Rank: 10th
Last 6 Starts: 14, 3, 15, 4, MC, 11
Best at Pebble: 38th (2020)


5. Justin Rose

The former Olympic Gold medalist, and world No. 1, enters in solid form, posting three top-12s in his last four starts, including a T6 at last week’s Farmers Insurance Open… This will be Rose’s third career appearance at Pebble Beach, with a T6 his best showing (2016)… The now 41-year-old Brit is seeking his first tour win since 2019.

Odds: 25-1
World Rank: 39th
Field Rank: 7th
Last Six: 6, 33, 9, 12, 40, 57
Best at Pebble: 6th (2016)


4. Jason Day

The former World No. 1 is a horse for the Pebble Beach course, posting five(!) top-5 finishes in his last seven starts. And his two results outside the top-5 were T7 and T11!.. Clearly, something about this event suits the Aussie well, and he enters this year’s edition off a T3 finish at Torrey Pines… His irons aren’t quite there on a consistent basis, but Pebble may be Day’s best chance to rediscover his winning ways.

Odds: 20-1
World Rank: 89th
Field Rank: 21st
Last Six: 3, 49, MC, 54, 64, MC
Best at Pebble: 2nd (2018)


3. Jordan Spieth

It was Pebble Beach in 2021 where Spieth’s relaunched his comeback season. Similar to last year, the 28-year-old Texan enters off a missed-cut at the Farmers, and – one year later – is looking for his first top-10 finish since, gulp, last summer… In nine career starts at Pebble, Spieth has missed the top-25 just once, with five top-10 finishes, including a win in 2017.

Odds: 20-1
World Rank: 15th
Field Rank: 2nd
Last Six: MC, 21, 20, 18, 24, 34
Best at Pebble: 1st (2017)


2. Daniel Berger

The defending Pebble Beach champion enters in good form (T7, T5, T20) and is one of only three in the field to be ranked inside the OWGR’s top 20… In three career starts at Pebble, Berger owns a win, T5 and T10… He currently ranks 1st on tour in fairways hit and sits in the top 20 in greens hit.

Odds: 12-1
World Rank: 16th
Field Rank: 3rd
Last Six: 20, 5, 7, 8, 26, 56
Best at Pebble: 1st (2021)


1. Patrick Cantlay

Cantlay ended the 2021 season with a back-to-back wins, then started the 2022 campaign with a pair of top-10 finishes… In his two most recent appearances at Pebble (2020 and 2021), the reigning FedEx Cup champ owns a T11 and T3… Cantlay leads the tour in greens hit percentage – a key stat to succeed at Pebble.

Odds: 7-1
World Rank: 4th
Field Rank: 1st
Last Six: 9, 4, 1, 1, 11, 23
Best at Pebble: 3rd (2021)


Next Five: Mackenzie Hughes, Ryan Palmer, Tom Hoge, Kevin Streelman, Lanto Griffin
