In a profile piece at Golfweek, Adam Schupak writes up story on Peter Jacobsen’s final farewell this week at Pebble Beach. The 67-year-old, who now works for NBC Sports, talks up his memories at the iconic golf course, including a win in 1995, which he calls the greatest moment of his career.

After a combined 831 starts on the PGA Tour and PGA Tour Champions, Peter Jacobsen intends to play one last competitive round on Saturday at Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course, wrapping up a pro career that spans six different decades.

“Father Time catches up to us all,” said Jacobsen who notched seven Tour wins in 661 events to go with two majors in 170 Champions Tour appearances. “My gosh, it’s a new game out here. They’ve got these new tees so far back that I’m hitting driver-hybrid to most of these holes. It’s time for me to get back to broadcasting. It’s time to hang the clubs up.”

But not before one last farewell at this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, where he is making a start for the 32nd time at the event he considers the most important week on the PGA Tour calendar. No one has understood the value of the pro-am format better than Jacobsen, and no one appreciates having one more chance to say goodbye to competitive golf.
