Pebble Beach Pro-Am Woes

Pebble Beach Golf CourseStrong winds and heavy rain prevented any of the 68-man field getting out of the clubhouse so the first threesome is set to tee off from 7.30am local time on Monday morning.

Strong winds are again expected at Pebble Beach Golf Links on Monday, though, with long-hitting American Dustin Johnson holding a four-shot lead over Canadian Mike Weir.

At least 50 per cent of the players would have to complete the final round for it to count, organisers said.

“Hopefully see if we can get the golf tournament in,” PGA Tour vice-president of rules and competition Mark Russell said. “I don’t think the wind is going to be as strong tomorrow morning.

“We’re mandated by the regulations to do everything we can to play 72 holes, so we’re going to see what we can do tomorrow.

If we find that we’re not going to be able to finish tomorrow, we’ll make a decision at that time.”
