Monterey, California, December 12, 2017 – Popular tour pros Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, Jason Day and defending champion Jordan Spieth will join celebrity newcomer Dierks Bentley for the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, as they tee it up on three Monterey Peninsula golf courses the week of Feb. 5-11.
The tournament lineup also features two of the fastest-rising stars on the world golf stage – Jon Rahm, the 23-year-old Spaniard who is ranked No. 4 in the world going into the new year, and Brooks Koepka, 27, of Florida, who is No. 8. Rahm tied for fifth last year at Pebble Beach, while Koepka was eighth in his only previous appearance at Pebble Beach in 2016.
“Our player lineup for 2018 is looking pretty impressive, with five of the world’s top 10 players already,” said Steve John, tournament director and CEO for Monterey Peninsula Foundation, the host organization. “The popularity of our field plays a significant role in our goal to raise money for our local charities.”
Bentley, the gold-record country music sensation, will have plenty of good company in the celebrity field – including fan favorites Carson Daly, Josh Duhamel, Toby Keith, Chris O’Donnell and Kelly Rohrbach. They all will pair with a tour pro to take on Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course for three rounds, with the final round at Pebble Beach.
Heading into 2018 ranked No. 31 in the world, Scott has 13 PGA TOUR victories, along with 13 worldwide tour wins, which includes becoming the first Australian to win The Masters in 2013. Scott, 37, is making only his second career start in the tournament, finishing 52nd in 2010, prior to the U.S. Open Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links.
Scott joins a field that includes two-time past champion Dustin Johnson, the No. 1-ranked player in the world ahead of No. 2 Spieth, and Rory McIlroy, the No. 10 player in the world who is making his first appearance in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Day, also from Australia, ends the year ranked No. 12.
McIlroy’s fellow Irishman Paul Dunne, winner of the 2017 British Masters, has accepted a sponsor’s exemption, as has former World Amateur No. 1 and Stanford alumni Maverick McNealy.
