Shorts On Course And Packing For Pebble


This week, the 119th U.S. Open gets underway at Pebble Beach Golf Links, CA. Known for its stricter-than-most dress code, players will be dressed in more classic attire with collared polos and smart trousers the order of the week. We can't be sure whether Kelly Kraft's favorite joggers will be making an appearance this week - if they do they will cause a stir.

With 'June Gloom' hitting California in the late spring and early summer, players will need to ensure they are dressed appropriately so they are not caught out by cooler conditions in the morning. Layering is as important as ever, especially with the fluctuating temperatures.


Pebble Beach became the first public golf course to host a U.S. Open event in 1972, and this year on it's centenary, it will host its sixth event - more than any other course in the last 50 years. 

Just six public courses have ever hosted a U.S. Open, with Pebble Beach hosting more than three times. Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson and Tiger Woods all had huge career highlights at Pebble Beach and amateurs of all levels can relive some of golf's greatest moments too.

Pebble Beach also plays host to the AT&T Pro-Am each February, an event founded by Crooner Bing Crosby in 1947, which sees top tour players alongside big names in music, TV and other sports including Justin Timberlake and Bill Murray.
