2024 PGA AT&T Pebble Beach Predictions & Preview

Updated:

It’s the second signature event of the 2024 PGA Tour this week as we head to California for PGA AT&T Pebble Beach Predictions! The Pro-Am event will see the best players in the world compete for a salivating $20,000,000 purse. 

Names such as Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Viktor Hovland are the current favorites to win the tournament. However, it is longshot contenders who have been successful on the current tour so far. 

Rory McIlroy is a favorite for Pebble Beach predictions

We’ve got Pebble Beach predictions on the way for you as we breakdown everything you need to know ahead of this week’s event. A host of big names will be in attendance, so make sure you check out our preview below!

2024 PGA Farmers Insurance Open Results

The Farmers Insurance Open saw yet another shock victor. Matthieu Pavon made history last weekend as he became the first-ever French golfer to win on the PGA Tour. Pavon secured the narrow win after shooting 13-under, beating Nicolai Højgaard by just one stroke. 

All four winners on the PGA Tour this season have been outsiders. However, the field looks a lot stronger this week, and it will only be a matter of time before one of the big boys secure a win. 

However, past winners at Pebble Beach have largely been longshot candidates. Continue reading to find out who I’m selecting with Pebble Beach predictions this week. You can gain full access to my wagers via my handicapper page, Ashlee Kiddell

2024 AT&T Pebble Beach Preview

When: Thursday, February 1st – Sunday, February 4th, 2024

Where: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pebble Beach, California

TV: Golf Channel / CBS / ESPN+ / Peacock

Field: 80 Golfers (No Cut)

Purse: $​​20,000,000 (Winner gets $3,600,000)

Current champion Justin Rose is priced as long as +7000 to retain his crown. The English golfer shot 6-under during the final round last year to beat Brandon Wu and Brendon Todd by three strokes. 

Rose wasn’t one of the market leaders in 2023, with some bookmakers setting his starting price at +4300. Jordan Spieth is the only non-longshot winner in recent times after he won the tournament in 2017. His starting price was +900. 

AT&T Pebble Beach was originally known as the Bing Crosby Pro-Am, first being played in 1937. The tournament was known as the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am from 1986 to 2015. Since then, it has been called the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. 

Six of the last eight winners have all been from the USA. The 2020 edition saw Canadian golfer Nick Taylor win by four strokes, whilst Rose was the victor last February. The last time we saw Pebble Beach go down to a playoff was in 2008. 

Pebble Beach Golf Links Course Information

Both Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill will be used in tandem over the opening two days. We have an illustrious field in play over the two courses due to the tournament becoming a signature event. Amateurs will not be featuring over the weekend. 

Pebble Beach Golf Links Course is known as one of the highest rated public courses in the U.S. It has previously held multiple U.S. Open’s, last doing so in 2019. It was also the home of the 1977 PGA Championship. 

Pebble Beach

Par: 72 / Yards: 6,972

Spyglass Hill 

Par: 72 / Yards: 7,041

Greens: Poa annua

Both courses will feature poa annua greens, like at Torrey Pines at the Farmers Insurance Open last week. Pebble Beach is the host course and is short in distance. Driving distance and accuracy is not considered to be important for this event. Spyglass plays marginally harder than the host course. 

Players who perform well on poa annua greens could be in for strong displays. Equally, it will be important to hit the greens quickly. A hot putter could also be the key to victory. Wind will make an impact this week due to the course being coastal. 

Expert PGA AT&T Pebble Beach Predictions for 2024

A perennial contender at Pebble Beach, Spieth (+1550) will be featuring in Northern California again this year. Spieth won the tournament back in 2017, beating Kelly Kraft by four strokes. He only finished T63 in last year’s edition, but his form with the flat stick so far this season means he could be in for a good display. 

He ranks 7th in SG: Putting so far on the 2024 PGA Tour. Spieth finished third in The Sentry to begin the month, and it was largely down to his skills with the putter that got him there. The 30-year-old finished 2nd at Pebble Beach in 2022, T3 in 2021, and T9 in 2020. 

Max Homa (+1550) is another top contender for Pebble Beach predictions. The Californian loves playing in his home state, and that’s why he was one of the market leaders at the Farmers Insurance Open last week. He put in a respectable display, too, finishing T13 after shooting eight-under. Homa finished T7 at Pebble Beach in his last appearance in 2021. 

A slightly longer odds contender in Patrick Cantlay (+1800) will be looking to improve upon his underwhelming T56 finish at Torrey Pines last week. He finished T4 when he last played at Pebble Beach in 2022, also securing a T3 finish in 2021, and T9 in 2020. Cantlay himself has stated how much he enjoys playing on poa annua greens, too, so he looks set to be a good candidate. 

Jordan Spieth 2017 champion – Pebble Beach predictions

Top Contenders to Win the 2024 PGA AT&T Pebble Beach 

Collin Morikawa (+1800) was one of the top contenders for Farmers Insurance Open predictions last week, but he disappointed after failing to make the cut. Quite simply, his putting has not been good enough, and he ranks 154th in SG: Putting this season. He has never played in this tournament before, either, and finished T35 at the 2019 U.S. Open which was played at Pebble Beach. 

Market leader Scheffler (+850) has also failed to play at this event in the past as well. He featured at the 2019 U.S. Open, but missed the cut. He struggled with the flat stick at the end of last season, and that form has continued into the new year. I recommend fading him this week for Pebble Beach predictions.

However, a favorite that is showing better prospects is McIlroy (+850). He missed the cut in his last appearance at this tournament in 2018, but he finished T9 at the 2019 U.S. Open. The Northern Irishman is yet to feature on the PGA Tour this year. However, he has been performing well on the DP World Tour, finishing T2 at the Dubai Invitational and winning the Dubai Desert Classic. 

Longshots to Win the 2024 PGA AT&T Pebble Beach

Although not one of the longest odds candidates for Pebble Beach predictions this week, we could still find some value in Matt Fitzpatrick (+3500). He finished T12 at the 2019 U.S. Open, and T6 at the 2022 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, but missed the cut at the last year’s event. He has a mixed record in this tournament and on the Pebble Beach course, and he also missed the cut at the Sony Open earlier this month. Nevertheless, he finished T14 at The Sentry to begin the year. 

How about current champion Rose (+7000) for Pebble Beach predictions this week? He’s a big longshot contender after not having the best of starts to the 2024 PGA Tour. He finished T40 at The Sentry, T57 at the Sony Open, and T56 at the Farmers Insurance Open last week. Rose finished T3 at the 2019 U.S. Open, though, so has certainly performed well on this course in the past.

2024 PGA AT&T Pebble Beach Predictions – Top 10 Finish

With Rose priced at +500 to finish inside the top 10, I’ve selected him with my pick in this market. He’s the current champion, and despite not being in good form, he’s performed well on this course before. 

My final top-10 finish wager is on Fitzpatrick (+225). I don’t mind the value of that price, and like Rose, he has done well at Pebble Beach in the past. He’ll also be looking to build on his T14 finish at The Sentry. 

Best Bet: Justin Rose (+500) & Matt Fitzpatrick (+225)
