Event of the Day

Our event of the day is the fourth round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am golf tournament at Pebble Beach, California. The fourth round will be played on the Pebble Beach Golf Links by the lowest 75 scorers over the first three days. Currently the joint leaders are Dustin Johnson and Ted Potter Jr., who are both on 14 under. Potter shot a thrilling round of 9 under par on Saturday. Johnson will be fighting for his third victory in the event after his successes in 2009 and 2010. Other contenders on the final day include Australian Jason Day, Spaniard Jon Rahm and Americans Troy Merritt, Steve Stricker and Patrick Rodgers. Rahm and Day will be hoping to be just the fourth non-American to win this prestigious event after Bruce Crampton (1965) and Brett Ogle (1993), both from Australia, and Vijay Singh from Fiji in 2004.
The Pebble Beach Golf Links has been host to the U.S. Open Major on five occasions, the last been in 2010 and has held the PGA Championship on one occasion, in 1977. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful courses in the world and has often been said to be the best golf course in America. One of the signature holes is the picturesque short par 3 7th hole which is roughly 100 yards long - players hit straight out towards the Pacific Ocean off an elevated tee. With talented players all in touch with the leaders, it should be a thrilling final round of golf.
