74 and counting for Pebble Beach and PGA Tour

Iconic seaside course on Monterey Peninsula will serve as host of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am for a 74th consecutive year, the longest-running streak on Tour, when play begins Thursday

74: Number of consecutive years, dating to 1947, that the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am will have been held at Pebble Beach (Calif.) Golf Links when play begins Thursday. It is the longest-running consecutive streak on the PGA Tour. Two other nearby courses, Spyglass Hill and Monterey Peninsula, are used for the first three rounds before Sunday’s final round is staged at the iconic seaside Pebble Beach. The tournament dates to 1937, when the late entertainer Bing Crosby hosted the inaugural National Pro-Am Golf Championship at Rancho Santa Fe Golf Club in southern California. Upon the resumption of the tournament after World War II, the event moved north onto the Monterey Peninsula (tee times).
