It’s been a challenging week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on the Monterey Peninsula and the leaderboard has been filling up with withdrawals.
Before his Thursday round started, Philip Knowles was the first of 15 WDs of the week. He was replaced in the field by Jonas Blixt.
During the first round, Justin Suh WD’d due to a shoulder injury. Prior to Friday’s second round, Cameron Percy withdrew.
Weather started rolling in Friday and the wind really picked up Saturday. Third round tee times were moved up an hour and the high winds eventually forced the suspension of play, guaranteeing a Monday finish.
During the third round, Maverick McNealy WD’d, citing a left shoulder injury.
Sunday morning, the PGA Tour announced that nine more golfers were calling it a week at Pebble, including two – Will Gordon and Carson Young – who are on the list for the Monday qualifier for the WM Phoenix Open at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale.
Gordon shot a 69 on Pebble Beach Golf Links on Thursday despite a triple-bogey 8 on the 18th hole. He was 4 over through 15 in the third round. Young shot 69-77 and was 2 over with four holes to go in his third round before calling it.
In all, 15 golfers have withdrawn from the Pro-Am.
