Who doesn’t love the Pebble Beach Pro-Am—all the great golf, uber-cool celebrities and some of the most beautiful, majestic views of ocean and land that you will ever see.
Who would have thought this now marquee and worldwide event began in 1937 when Bing Crosby invited some friends to play golf, enjoy a little clambake and a raise a bit of money for charity in Rancho Sante Fe, California.
Like many I have never played the course, only enjoyed the HD version on the large screen at home. It’s hard to imagine actually being there live and in person-but 4 folks are actually getting to do that! In celebration of 30 years with Pebble Beach, AT&T has invited four golf fans to the tournament to cover it from the fan’s perspective.
The Foursome is comprised of: Marine Veteran, Tim Lang; Tiffany Fitzgerald of Black Girls Golf, “The Dan Plan’s” Dan McLaughlin, and 17-year old golfer Katie Horsford are getting the opportunity of a lifetime to experience VIP access at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. They have met with Jordan Spieth, had one-on-one swing lessons, watched the 3M Celebrity Challenge from AT&T’s Sky Box, and will be doing so much more over the weekend.
They will be living it up for the fans who couldn’t be there and sharing all the awesome-ness via social media from a “Fan’s Eye View”
For all of the fans who couldn’t make it out this year, this Foursome is sharing a first-hand look of all the cool and unique things that make this tournament one of a kind.
They will utilize the AT&T Network and HTC devices to document their journey and share via their social properties.
To help raise money for charity Golf pros, Hollywood celebrities and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs come together to raise over $120MM in donations for charity. Some familiar faces playing this year are (the ever-present and star huckster) Bill Murray, Don Cheadle, Jake Owen, Josh Duhamel, Andy Garcia, Chris O’Donnell, Kelly Slater and many others.
The 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am takes place February 9th through the 15th in Pebble Beach, California.
