Golf Rankings for AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am
Ryan Palmer [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #37
Palmer began 2014 with a T8 in the Sony Open and was the runner-up the following week in the Humana Challenge. Despite a strong second round last week at TPC Scottsdale, he was unable to match that consistency over the weekend and placed T48. Palmer has played Pebble Beach eight times with just one top-25 and three missed cuts.
Jason Kokrak [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #152
Kokrak recorded a pair of top-12s in his three fall events before adding a T20 in the Sony Open and a T15 last week at TPC Scottsdale. His two other starts this season were missed cuts. Kokrak has also been hit or miss at Pebble Beach with a T9 in 2012 and a missed cut last year.
Kevin Na [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #26
Na missed two cuts in four fall events, but is 3-for-3 in 2014; where he is yet to shoot a round worse than 70. After years of struggling at Pebble Beach, Na broke through with a T5 in 2012 and finished last year with a sound T22.
Jim Furyk [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #7
Furyk will be playing in his first OWGR eligible tournament of 2014 this week. Over the last five years his best result in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am is a T30. In the 2010 U.S. Open, Furyk landed T16.
Nick Watney [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #140
Watney missed the cut at Pebble Beach last year for the first time since his debut at the site back in 2004. He opened 2014 with a lowly T59 at Torrey Pines and cost himself a top-15 in the final round of play last week at TPC Scottsdale.
Matt Every [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #78
Every is a solid, if unspectacular, option at Pebble Beach. In four career starts, he has only finished worse than 31st once. Last year he was sitting inside the top 10 after two rounds, but came apart over the weekend to place T30. Had Every not struggled in the final round at TPC Scottsdale last week, he would enter this week’s action with three consecutive top-15 finishes.
Matt Jones [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #76
Jones owns a pair of top-15s in three starts this year. At Pebble Beach he placed T10 in 2010 and T15 in 2011 before missing the cut in 2012. Last year he placed T30 after a sharp final round.
Cabrera-Bello plays a limited number of events in the states each season. He played Pebble Beach last year, but missed the cut. RBC has played a total of three events on the European Tour this year, including a T4 in Abu Dhabi and a T3 in Qatar.
Charley Hoffman [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #74
Hoffman has finished T35 two of the last three years at Pebble Beach. He has played well in the first round, but struggled from there. Hoffman notched a pair of top-10s prior to last week’s T61 at TPC Scottsdale.
Russell Knox [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #94
In his last two starts, Knox finished T13 at the Humana Challenge and T10 at Torrey Pines. Last year at Pebble Beach he was leading after the first round and was ninth after two rounds, but tumbled over the weekend to finish T28.
Brendon Todd [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #51
Todd has made all seven of his cuts this season, including four fall starts. In that span he’s only finished outside of the top 30 twice. Todd missed the cut at Pebble Beach last year, but placed T9 in 2012.
Aaron Baddeley [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #200
Baddeley has been a nonfactor this year, but has been impressive at Pebble Beach. Over the last three years he hasn’t finished worse than 12th.
