AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am Odds: Dustin Johnson The Star Attraction

Pebble Beach Golf Links is the No. 1 public golf course in America. It is truly sacred ground in the golf world – canvasing the spectacular coastline that wraps around California’s Monterey Peninsula. The 2021 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am takes place at Pebble Beach for three rounds this year, and also one round at Spyglass Hill (7,035, Par 72). The 2021 tournament will be played without the pro-am element due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Dustin Johnson will be the prohibitive favorite near +700, with Patrick Cantlay near +1100. We will post odds from top sportsbooks such as DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and BetMGM as soon as they are made available.

Notable players in the field

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson makes his return at Pebble Beach where he’s a two-time winner (2009, 2010), and has also finished runner-up twice (2014, 2018). It’s his first full-field tournament of 2021 after finishing T11 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. That followed Johnson’s win at The Masters in November.

  • Patrick Cantlay (11)
  • Daniel Berger (14)
  • Paul Casey (16)

Other notable players include: five-time Pebble Beach champion Phil Mickelson, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Matt Kuchar, Rickie Fowler and Stewart Cink who is currently Top 10 in the FedExCup standings.

Pebble Beach has been the host of six US Open tournaments. The most recent was in 2019, won by Gary Woodland. The course is set on craggy cliffs above Carmel Bay. Eight of the holes skirt the coastline, and it’s these holes that distinguish Pebble Beach. The tiny greens average near 3,500 square feet, which is the smallest on the PGA Tour. You’ll want to check the stats for players that perform well on Poa annua, and are strong on approach play into greens. Power is not a prerequisite when playing Pebble Beach, and generous fairways allow for more lies in the short grass to attack the smaller greens.

Players that have won in recent years or contended have been among the leaders in Strokes Gained: Approach, and had strong weeks hitting greens and putting.

There is a 50% chance of rain showers in the advance forecast each day. There have been only two overseas winners in 50 years, so keep that in mind as you navigate the courses and player performances at Pebble Beach.

A stronger field will return next week as the Tour heads five hours South down the coast to Pacific Palisades for The Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club.
