Golf on TV Today (Saturday, Feb. 8): AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

The PGA Tour's 2020 Pebble Beach Pro-Am teed off on Thursday with the third round set for Saturday, Feb. 8. The tournament is held in picturesque Pebble Beach, Calif., and is played on three different courses — Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club (Shore Course).

The Pebble Beach Pro-Am is one of the most unique events on the PGA Tour. Founded by legendary entertainer Bing Crosby, this event has a rich history that goes back more than 80 years. The format is different in that the tournament pairs other celebrities and athletes with professionals for the first two rounds.

And after two rounds, Nick Taylor leads at 14-under, two strokes ahead of Jason Day. Phil Mickelson, the defending champion, is also in the hunt at 11-under after shooting a 64 (7-under) on Friday.
