Bill Murray, a staple at the tourney

Bill Murray, a staple at the tourney

Business on the PGA Tour continues to thrive under the leadership of Commissioner Tim Finchem. It’s really no surprise to hear a(nother) sponsor has extended its support of a Tour event. AT&T has signed a ten-year deal to renew its sponsorship of the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Hooray — 10 more years of Bill Murray and his antics throughout the week at Pebble!

Phil wins, with a little help from Amy

Phil Mickelson was moping around the Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course, posting a ho-hum even par on his first nine (the back) in the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Then, the sunny skies from the morning turned to overcast skies and eventually rain, which hadn’t been in the forecast, started to fall steadily (and annoyingly) on his second nine.

About the same time the weather rolled in, Mickelson, who hasn’t been known for his prowess in wet and windy conditions, experienced a change in his mood and game, which eventually led to his splendid eight-under 64 in Sunday’s final round to cruise to the winner’s circle for the fourth time at Pebble Beach.

Amy Mickelson, his wife, flew in on Friday morning and lifted her husband’s spirits — and his game — with her bright smile and positive energy, along with a few words of support when she showed up on the 3rd tee at MPCC.

Ugh: These greens are so bumpy!

 

Actually, it sounds like Tiger Woods may have gotten a better grip on his outbursts as he matured into an adult. AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 36-hole leader Charlie Wi, who is 12-under after firing 61-69, shared an amusing memory from a round he played with Tiger in junior golf — they played quite a bit together when they were younger because they’re both from California.

Danny Lee didn't need a belly putter to shoot 63 on Thursday.

As the competitors wind their way around a second of Monterey’s three venues, the leaderboard should begin to reflect the state of play a little more accurately. In the driving seat at the moment, though, are 21-year-old Danny Lee (once the youngest ever winner on the European Tour), Charlie Wi and big-hitting, slow-talking Dustin Johnson.

Levin tied for 4th at last year's Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

The award for the day’s most unintentionally amusing headline probably goes the way of the Sacramento Bee, whose interview with this week’s PGA Tour hard-luck story is titled “Levin hopes he learns from Phoenix collapse”.

You can’t beat that note of uncertainty.

Jessica Simpson, Tiger and Romo = cute threesome!

Thanks to Shoshana for keeping me posted on the news while I was busy sunning myself on the beach — including the chatter about Tiger Woods kicking off his 2012 PGA Tour schedule at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, which the AP’s Doug Ferguson insinuated in November. On New Year’s Day a tweet from Golf Channel’s Jason Sobel triggered rumors that Tiger and Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback Tony Romo will play together at Pebble Beach, where the pros team up with celebs to compete in a tournament within the tournament.

DA Points and Bill Murray shot a team total of 35-under to win the pro-am

“Cinderella story outta nowhere. Former greenskeeper and now about to become The Masters champion…” I bet you haven’t heard that line enough times since Sunday evening! But thing is, it actually was a Cinderella story. Paired with actor and entertainer Bill Murray, D.A. Points shot a five-under 67 in the final round to capture his first-career PGA Tour victory at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. To top it off, Points and Murray combined to post 35-under and won the pro-am portion of the event.
