We’re back in California! I’m excited to present to you the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am DFS Course Preview for DraftKings & FanDuel 2021. This year at Pebble Beach, there will not be a pro-am portion, but we will still have a stacked field of 156 players with Dustin Johnson’s return and the PGA debut of Kamaiu Johnson.
California swing part 2 begins! We’re back for another event with split courses! Usually, this event is played with three courses, but they eliminated the Monterey Peninsula course this year. So there will be one round at Pebble Beach and one round at Spyglass Hill.
Pebble Beach is a par 72, 7050 yards played on Poa Annua. One of the easiest holes on the course is the 6th hole. The 6th hole gives up a significant chance for eagle opportunities, and it has a 44% birdie rate. The 4th hole is the 2nd easiest hole on the course, coughing up 28% in birdies. Lastly is the famous 18th hole that has a 26% birdie rate. However, this course is not a cakewalk. Holes 2, 8, 9, 10, and 17 have a bogey 25-38% rate.
Spyglass Hil is a par 72, 7040 yards played on Poa Annua. This course is the easiest of the two, so I’ll be eyeing a ton of players here for my showdowns (sadly, we won’t have any shotlink data). The back 9 is where you want to be. Holes 11, 14, 15, 17, and 18 have a birdie rate of 25-45%, with a small chance of an eagle.
According to the GCSAA, the fairways at Pebble average 45 yards in width, and since last year, native grasses have been introduced on holes 2, 4, 11 & 15, so there’s another kind of hazard the players will need to navigate. The greens at Pebble are small (3500 sq feet) and slow. While on contrast, the fairways and greens are much wider and larger at Spyglass Hill, and it’s more of a bomber’s course. Anyway, let’s get to the picks!
