In 2009, a system swept through the Monterey Bay Area. Some volunteers recalled the 2009 storms as one of the worst they seen and hope they do not experience a repeat of events for 2014. Heavy winds toppled a Monterey Pine on the third fairway of Pebble Beach delaying competitive play until the following Monday. In 2010, the rain hit early during practice rounds and did not impact competitive play. Last year, it rained just on Thursday and Friday.
Wet weather and golf always seem to go hand-in-hand during February’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Dubbed “Crosby Weather” after the legendary actor and singer Bing Crosby who first started the event back in 1947. Crosby invited some of his friends over for an old fashion clambake and have a couple rounds of golf for charity.
