Sacramento’s Cameron Champ Set for AT&T Pro-Am Debut
January 29, 2019
Sacramento’s Cameron Champ, a 23-year-old tour rookie who led the Web.com Tour with a driving distance average of 343.1 yards, is set to make his AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am debut.
Champ led the PGA Tour in driving distance during the 2018 fall events at 328.2 yards. He has reached a clubhead speed average of 130.20 mph, faster than any recorded on the PGA Tour last season. Also proving he is not only long, but good, Champ captured his first career win on tour in only his second start.
While this will be Champ’s first appearance in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, he has competed in a tour event on the Monterey Peninsula before – as a junior amateur in the 2012 PURE Insurance Championship, finishing tied for second with pro partner Steve Pate.
Cameron is just part of a star-studded lineup of tour golf professionals, sports and entertainment personalities in the 2019 tournament. Two-time AT&T Pro-Am winner Dustin Johnson, the No. 3 ranked player in the world, will be joined by No. 11-ranked Tony Finau, along with young American star Jordan Spieth, 2019 tour winners Matt Kuchar, Shane Lowry and Adam Long, plus highly popular four-time tournament champion Phil Mickelson.
A solid group of international players is set, including widely the popular Tommy Fleetwood of England, No. 13 in the world rankings, plus No. 10 Jason Day and Adam Scott of Australia, while the celebrity field includes NFL superstars Aaron Rodgers, Larry Fitzgerald and Matt Ryan, as well as actor Andy Garcia.
One of the most exciting events on the PGA Tour, the AT&T Pro-Am is played at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Course and Monterey Peninsula Country Club Shore Course for three rounds, Thursday through Saturday, with Sunday’s final round at Pebble Beach.
